  • And it's okay if your a mess!  This is your baby going out into the world!  I'm going to shed some tears too, lol.

  • My ds will be going to preschool in the fall, and I'm going to be a mess.... We have never left him with anyone but family. I don't think he understands the school thing yet, but he gets excited when I ask if he wants to go play at school with some other kids..
