i have a 13 year old and a 3 year old. when the oldest (cam) was 18 months old he had to start daycare. i was the unfortunate one in a marriage where there was infidelity. so i went back to work and off he went to daycare. i cried everyday on the way to work after i dropped him off.flash forward to about 2 years ago. my younger one (nic) starts attending Kids Day Out at a church. Cam comes up to me one day , all nostalgic about daycare and preschool. he says "mom, i LOVED daycare" ...OMG if i had known how much he loved going to "school" i would never have felt so upset having to take him there.

It's normal to second guess our decisions when it comes to our kids....but, think back and ask yourself what the reason was why you signed him up initially.....this should remind you of your thinking.
It's definately hard letting go of "our babies" (even when they go off to college or get married). To help him understand leaving you, you may want to talk about it and read books about it to prepare him http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html (Click on School, Starting, Afraid). I bet he will get something out of it and you may too!
