I just reg. my dd yesterday for next September & it has changed to F/T classes now. I have mixed feelings. I am so happy for her as she is so ready, I feel so sad as she will be away from me for such a long time, and will worry about her. I hope there won't be too many meltdowns.....I know I will be a mess the 1st week. Man, how time flies my baby in Kindergarten. I am going to miss her tremendously.

Is your child starting this year?

  • My youngest is halfway through kindergarten now. He's in half day, and next year he will be going all day for the first time as he starts first grade. I am really dreading that, and I will miss him. I love having afternoons with just him. It's going to be a hard adjustment.

  • My youngest started this school year. Even though he was in daycare 8-4, 4 days a week, full time kinder has kicked his little butt. He is so tired that on Saturdays he will often put himself down for a nap.

  • This must be your first child to You'll miss her, but she'll have fun and you'll get used to some quiet time. My youngest just started kindergarten this year. It's all good. He's in a safe place, he's learning, he's got house gets cleaned. I love it!

  • No she is starting next year. Will you be able to vollinteer at her school? if so maybe you can do that and you will be able to help out and
    you won't have to miss her so much. When my kids were in school the parents weren't allowed to be at the school.
