do you think you'll cry on your LO's first day of kindergarten?

i don't think i will. i'll worry about how the day goes, but cry? nah..
if you've already been through this, how'd you do? better or worse than the new student?

  • I will never forget it, I walked him to his class, and as soon as the door closed behind him, I started crying. I cried the same way the first day of preschool, and this year he goes to middle school and I am sure I will do the same thing. Each time, it is another milestone gone, another day closer to my little guy becoming a man. So, yes I cried, and hope that I have many more tears to cry, because I want to be there to see every milestone!

  • I'm sure I will cry. He did PreK but this will be the first year he rides the school bus too. I cry at everything though :D

  • I'm not a cryer but I'm sure I'll get a little misty @ how grown up she's gotten. LOL mine's only 14 mo & already I get misty thinking about what she was like as an infant. One more step towards moving out of the house :(

  • Mine starts preschool soon and I'm probably going to be a little teary eyed because I know he'll be upset and I'll have to leave him for his own good. I'm hoping it doesn't take him long to get used to it!
