One of the benefits to being on staff at Water of Life is that we get free tuition at the preschool. So, I thought, Caden would really like preschool. (I know, I was going to homeschool, and then I wised up. Not that homeschooling is totally out, but I’m tired and this kid is running me ragged.) Anyway, since they accept kids at 3 years old (as long as they are potty trained) we got an application for Caden to be on the waiting list.
Why is this freaking me out????? I don’t know. Because he’s my little baby. He’s not old enough to go to school! I know he’s going to love it, and he’s totally a social butterfly, but I was always painfully shy in school so I think I’m reflecting my own personality on him, but I’m nervous for him. He’s not nervous at all. In fact, he doesn’t even know he’s on the waiting list, but I know he’s not going to be nervous on the first day. When we went to his new Sunday school class last weekend I felt the same way for him, and he just walked in and sat down and started playing. Afterwards he said this, “Mommy, I make new friends.” How cute!
My point is, he’ll be fine. He’ll probably flourish. But I have a tummy ache.
