Today I am grateful to have kept it together when Baylor started expressing his worries about school before bed. The little man comes by it honestly; I was a nervous wreck about school ... just ask my parents. And I'll be honest; I am extremely anxious about him starting full-day, every day kindergarten. He's my baby and it seems too early. But it is what it is, and I know he's going to enjoy it soon enough. Luckily he has a thirst for knowledge; knowledge is something school certainly provides and fosters, and right now I'm using that as the hook, the thing to get him excited about going to school. Hopefully he and I can both get through this together and come out happier once these first few days/weeks/etc. are over.
I want to fix the situation so badly, want to make this better for him NOW, and this urge makes me search out books and websites and anything and everything I can think of to help. But, in the end, throwing book after book after everything at the problem isn't going to make it go away; they might help, but the first day of school will still be there and undoubtedly there will still be nerves.
So until those first few days/weeks/etc. have passed, until this becomes our new normal, I will be attempting to hold it together. We'll see how this goes.
Have a wonderful night!
