My son had his Kindergarten orientation today. We walked to the school, met his teacher and saw his class. They explained all the stuff about having a snack and PTOs and the like.
I was fine at first but by the end, and especially on the walk back, it was all I could do to choke back the tears.
They won’t let us walk them to their classes, we have to walk them to a line out front and then the teacher leads them in. I don’t like that. Not at all. My rational self keeps telling my irrational self that it is ok, the Ms. M will take care of him and they are all going in together. My irrational self keep saying,” BUT I CAN’T MAKE REAAAALLY REAAAALLY SURE HE GOT TO HIS CLASSROOM!! WHAT IF HE GETS DISTRACTED, GETS OUT OF LINE AND GETS LOST?!?!?!?!?”
I have to trust my son and my son’s teacher that he will be ok. I have to let go, I know this. I know he is ready, just not sure that I am.
