A Brand New World

It's coming y'all. And no, I'm not talking the second coming. I'm talking the Big K.

Kindergarten.

The word gives me shivers of excitement, immense pride in my child and feelings of sudden loss. What am I going to do after five years of having my child CONSTANTLY with me? Write for most of the day, workout and make minor repairs to the house. And even though I have my day planned, I think for the first few days, I won't know what to do with myself, with this sudden onslaught of individual freedom.

The big day is Thursday...

Wow, what a BIG day you have coming up, Kelly!! I know I'll be a wreck when my daughter goes off to kindergarten, too -- although that's not for another year. I do know that her first day in day care I had NO idea what to do with myself at all. I went from having her with me pretty much every minute of every day, to having so much time to myself -- I eventually got into a routine of writing in the mornings and running errands in the afternoons, but I think it took me a week to get over the shock of it all. :)

Good luck with your transition, Kelly!

Hugs,
Jennifer

Thanks, Jennifer. It'll certainly be weird. The house will be so quiet...

Well Kelly she is finally in school!! I know it's sad for you because that means she is growing up and isn't a baby anymore. But for her it's wonderful, she loves it and can make lots of friends, and with her outgoing personality she will shine. :) And you will be so proud of her. Now i'm getting sappy. "sigh" After a week or two I think you will enjoy your free time. Enjoy it Kel, I still have one more to go. haha
