So Much Stuff So Little Time

I have so much stuff to do that there is a major backlog at my house. And working, well let's just say it is getting in the way. Although there is the fact that I need the money that working provides so there is always that.

Anyway, my most pressing matters are Kindergarten.

I am so not looking forward to my little baby girl going off into the big world. She is so little and naive. Yet she is so grown up. This time has just flown by. When did she turn 5? How did that happen?

She has gained so much maturity this summer. I am completely awed by the things she comes up with. She can shock me at any given moment. Yet she will constantly sit on my lap. And even as of yesterday she will ask me to do the Rock -a- Baby as she calls it. So I pick her up and rock her back and forth through Rock a bye baby in the tree tops, When the wind blows....

School starts on the 31st for her. She will be going to school all day. All day. From 7am until we get off of work. The actual school hours are closer to 8:30 - 2:30 but she will be there longer. Without any family members with her. No one I know to watch over her. No one I know to be there when she needs someone close to her. It brings tears to my eyes as I type this.

The world is such a scary place. Please world be kind to my girl.

I can imagine how scary that is for you.... but knowing Belle.. I know she will thrive and adore her school.

She is such a happy & social girl.. you have done an amazing job with her... she will be just fine.

This scares the sh*t out of me, and Maggie is only 4. I still have a year to figure out how to deal with the big K-word.

I'm sure Belle will do just fine.

Right there with you, Lauren. It's so hard to let them go off without us standing behind to make sure it's all OK.

She'll have a ball, but we won't. Now I'm teary-eyed, too.
