My girls start school again in 3 weeks. And while I am very excited to go shopping by myself again, I'm not quite ready.
Let me explain. My oldest daughter is 6 years old. She spent 2 years in preschool and 1 in kindergarten. The most she has ever spent her day away from me is the 3 hours of kindergarten. She has always been home by lunch. Always spent the majority of the day with ME! And starting in 3 weeks she will be in First grade. She will be spending SEVEN hours a day at school. SEVEN. That is much more than 3.
And even though I did not cry a single tear her first day of kindergarten, I may for her first day of first grade. I'm just not ready for my baby to grow up.
