are you gonna cry?

On you kindergarteners first day? My dd went to preschool last year it was her first to ever be away from me as I am a SAHM and I cried for at least the first week, and probably will next week when she heads off to kindergarten!!

  • I did when my kids first went to kindergarten. I was hysterical. Next year my baby goes. I might need a stretcher.

  • Of course!! I already had some tears shed when I filled out the I just cannot believe my little boy is going to school. I have been so blessed to have my mom care for him while I work. I am already prepared with a box of Of course he will be fine, he is very outgoing and looks forward to being with all the children. I took off of work to prepare myself, and just in case he needs me (wishful thinking) Prayers will get me through. It is so hard to let go.

  • Nope. This is my son's second year of preschool. I didn't cry last year either. He was so confident. On the way to the classroom he says, "Mommy, you are going to bring me there, then leave, and pick me up later." :) He is so excited for school to start again.

  • My daughter starts kindergarten in three weeks and I haven't thought much about it, but now I'm starting to tear up reading this post and imagining her first day. She is growing up so fast.

  • It's hard to see them off on their first day of Kindergarten. You await this moment. And then when it arrives you feel a little sad that they are going off to school and aren't babies anymore.

  • My son has 4 years until he starts school, but I can guarantee you that I WILL cry, lol.

  • I homeschool, so it's not an issue for me ;)

  • Sure did. I thought it was the one and only time I'd ever do kindergarten. Now this year, my youngest starts preschool, and yes, I'm probably going to bawl.
