  • Mine never went to preschool- but when they went to kindergarten It was the happiest day ever! No crying from THIS mom
    * I never had babysitters at all when my kids were little so I was very very happy to see them go to school when the time came

  • my dd's didn't/don't go to preschool. My oldest just started kindergarden last fall and I almost cried, but I didn't. I thought for sure I was going to. But when she graduated from kindergarden in June I got tairy eyed.

  • She was about 2.5 and her best friend (brother) stepped on the school bus for his first day of Kindergarten. She's now 4 and will be starting preschool in the fall. He'll be starting 2nd grade in the fall as well. Like charlotsometimes I'm with my kids 100% of the time so I'm actually looking forward to having no kids at home.

  • I never had babysitters either. I am with my kids 24/7 seriously I might get a sitter once a year and that is to go out for our anniversary thats it. And I still cried when she went to school. I have been a sahm since I was 7 months pregnant with my first. And I still almost cried when my dd started school and even at birthdays every birthday I get tairy eyed lol

  • so I'm horrible for being happy for some sort of babysitter? whatever... it was only a couple hours a day and I took them and picked them up and was with them every minute they weren't in school for the most part. My mom never watched them for me and his mom was in another state so YES I was a happy camper :)
