My 8yr old son has a field trip today to Sea World. A big place & I'm not there. The first time he's had a trip like that & I'm not there with him.
I came very close to not letting him go, but then decided as long as he could be in his teacher's group then it would be okay - I know her fairly well & I don't know too many of the parents who are going. Didn't want someone I didn't know in charge of my child. I could just picture him going to the bathroom & no one noticing if he didn't come back.
I cried after I dropped him off - silly right? It's very hard to "let go" for lack of a better term. I think of children like Sandra Cantu who was recently murdered & I worry about someone taking him.
Then as if this wasn't enough, it's drizzling today which made me think of bus accidents...! Does it get easier with your other children? Is this type of worry normal or am I obsessive? :o(
