First Time Kindergarten Mommy

Kindergarten registration is coming up in one month. All this time I have been so excited for Liddy. With the exception of the school bus worries, I've been looking forward to sending her off to school daily. I love my dear sweet baby girl, but she has a boredom issue that turns into violence towards her sister. She needs stimulation! Kindergarten will be good for all us! Then today it hit me that my "baby" will be gone to a big kid school and start her educational career. It's such a big step. She's going to have to grow up. She's going to finally have to learn how to work her zipper on her pants. She's going to have to learn to speak up. She's going to have to make her own decisions. And, by the way, she is a baby. She'll be young for her class...on top of being shy. I just want to protect her forever. Is it possible that I'll over-analyze this for the next 5 months? Oh my....only 5 months. Eeek! Millions of people do this, right?

Girl, I hear you! Anthony we are double registering in both public and private school, because it seems I am going to have to go back to work full time. I am ready with Anthony, but ABBY! Sweet, sweet Abby. I don't want her to be in school/day care all day. Ugh. Life is unfair sometimes.
