How exciting for you. This is a mile stone for you and for him. His indifference I don't know about. It could be he is just used to school if he has ever been to preschool. Kind of like, been there done that. For you - your routine and life is about to change. This is a graduation of sorts. In time you will have a new normal and a new routine that will be for years to come. You can do things to help yourself. There are mom groups for this very thing in most areas across the country. Just look in your local parenting magazine for some groups and meet up times. Volunteer at your child's school, even out of the room, to get a better feel of the school and a for you to feel good too. If you can afford to: get some me massage time, shop, ect... If budget is tight, still spoil yourself in ways that are small but Heavenly. Be good to yourself. Get excited and your son might too.

I am a SAHM too, and my son started school this last fall. I thought it would be hard, but because I feel a child looks at school often through his mothers' attitude, I have always acted like school is such a big deal, that I actually have fooled myself too. He has a great attitude about school, and going there every day, and I have a good attitude as well. He comes home everyday with 'gifts' for mom, showing her how smart he is, and that healthy food and good sleep helped him to do that. He thinks that because his dad goes away during the day, and now he does too, that it makes him feel important, and big. But we still find lots of time to snuggle, and with the books he gets from school, we get to read together while we do that. I've adjusted better to him going to school than I did when I brought him home from the hospital after he was born.
