Do you still want to cry...

...when you drop your pre-schooler or kindergartner off to school? I'm still getting misty-eyed every morning, LOL.

  • I feel like crying that today is Friday. My son is loving school and I'm liking him being somewhere educational and safe while I get things done that need doing at home.

  • Not really. I'm so proud of them growing and learning, it's a happy moment for me, not a tearful one.

  • I'm used to taking my son to school now (he did 4K, 5K twice and now he's in1st grade) but the morning that we were running late and he said "Mom, I'll give you hugs and kisses because no one is here (big kids) to laugh... but if there's someone here, I won't do it. I dont want them to laugh at me." I cried... so sad...

  • My son will start kindergarten next year. I can bring on real tears if I let myself think about sending him off to school in a whole year.
