We’re being nonchalant about this. I mean, this kid’s been in daycare for three years. What’s a little change of scenery?
Oliver’s first day of junior kindergarten:
(He burst into tears. He was the only one that cried! My baby! My oldest baby child who is not really a baby but is rather tall, actually, but is actually the youngest that you could possibly even be to start kindergarten because he’s a December 31st baby. I mean, a kid born merely 24 hours after him wouldn’t even start school until an ENTIRE YEAR after him! What will this do to him? Will he succeed? Will he be at the bottom of the class? Will he struggle?? My LITTLE BOY is riding a BIG yellow school bus every day. What if he falls asleep on the way home and they forget to drop him at daycare? Will he lose everything that we send, despite it all being labeled? Will he eat the entire contents of his lunch box at recess? I packed so much food. Will he even eat it all? Will he know anyone there? Will he understand what to do?)
He’s okay. I’m okay. Breathe.
