    Was it hard for you when your first born started school for the first time?

    Yes, it was hard for me to watch our daughter head down the road to Kindergarten however my love for her and the joy I felt knowing she was progressing in life allowed me to let her go. I also signed up to volunteer in the classroom. Once a week or once every two weeks I volunteered to help the teacher, and it let me see that our daughter was doing fine plus I got to meet her classmates. Good luck!

    Oh yes, it's totally natural to feel that way.  I felt the same letting my baby go that first day, but he ended up running into school all excited - he easily left me behind and I spent the rest of the day when he wasn't looking in tears smile.  It's a milestone and you'll be so proud, but it will break your heart a little at the same time.  I am facing similar feelings with same child entering middle school.  He was in a school bus crash at the end of last year and the past 3 months have been about focusing on his healing and Physical Therapy etc and I have been with him again at every single moment.  Sending him to a new school, on crutches and having to watch him face riding a bus again is almost too much for me to bear too at times.  I know though, just like with Kindergarten, he's going to be just fine.  Being a mom is joyful and tearful simultaneously smile

      Oh my..I pray that he continues to get better, I know I would probably feel the same as you do, if this were to happen to one of my children, but yes I have been trying not to think about it, but I know she will be very happy..smile

    We never did preschool when my girls were growing up so our first school experience was when my daughter went into kindergarten and it was half day.  It was hard, but I think it was much harder when the youngest finally went off and it was official, I had no babies at home anymore.

    You will quickly adjust to having a moment to yourself.

    I hate to say but it really never gets easier.  They just keep going farther and longer and you can only hope you've given them everything they need.  I realize this is not as uplifting as you may have hoped. 
    The consolation is you are witnessing them turn into their own person and gain more and more experience.  It's fun at any age.  I wish you well.

    Yes, I went to get her signe in, filled out all the forms from the kindergarten teacher, helped her find someplace to sit and find her cubby. THen the bell rang. I didn't want to leave. But my daughter turned to me and said, "Mom, the bell rang. YOu can go home now." She was way more ready than I was.

    Yes. I cried. I also cried the entire way to work the day I dropped him off at middle school. I cried his first day of high school and now he leaves for college in 3 weeks. I will most definitely need to be medicated.

    Yes ... you sweet mom.... sometimes its harder on the mother than the child.. It is your first time of not being in complete control.. It is the first of many separtations to come and It makes you contemplate that..... and you will miss your little one... Feel it... be good to yourself and volunteer some of your time to the classroom......that helps a bit
