Yeah, Lexi is starting Kindergarten this year. And I am seriously experiencing feelings of trepidation at the prospect of her spending seven hours away from her Mommy five days a week! I get anxiety and a headache and I am not sure what is best to do. You see, our school district, and pretty much every school district that we called here in Oklahoma City, doesn't offer half day Kindergarten (or Pre-K) anymore!!! It is all full day! Here I am thinnking, "What the he**!?! Whatever happened to a smooth transition?" It seems like too much too soon. Does anyone else feel the same way?
I hope I can find a solution soon that feels right. I have been looking into a Montessori school that seems awesome, but the tuition would make the budget tighter around here.
I know that a lot of moms cry when their children start school, and I am told that it is mostly because she is my first, but a headache, anxiety and the blues? Is that normal? Or am I just weird??? I know she will do fine, whatever schooling choice we make. And we will closely monitor how she is progressing and feeling. She says she wants to try full day, so we will give it a try. I just need to chill out and remember that homeschooling is always an option. :)
P.S. This picture took forever to get, and it still isn't right!!!
P.P.S Barrett chipped his tooth today at the pool, poor little guy. The low point of our day. :(
P.P.P.S What does "P.S." mean, anyway?
