I am acutely aware lately that my twins will be off to Kindy in 6 months time and find I am already becoming emotional.
I feel almost like they are being taken away from me in a sense.
I know kids must grow up and we must let go, but I am so worried I am going to burst into tears in front of them because even the thought of sending them off to school makes me want to cry and cry.
They have such a happy little world here!
How do you deal with this Mothers? [crybawl]
When our eldest started school, our youngest started preschool too :o
On our eldest's first day of school, I had coffee with my mum, chatted with my mil on the phone, and turned up to pick him up 40 minutes early :lol:
When our youngest started school this year, dh took the day off :lol:
So, the three C's got me through -
Coffee, companionship, and care :D
I do see the boys every now and then throughout certain days - I do reading in our eldest son's class twice a week, I do tuckshop, iceblocks at lunch, and various other things (mother's day stalls, assemblies, etc).
And I still get there 1/4 hour early to pick them up :lol:
I keep really busy, with reading groups twice a week (soon to increase to three times a week when I start in youngest son's class), bible study once a week, and 2 days a week to clean, do laundry, shop for groceries etc.
And, of course, the best thing is to cover them, and yourself, in prayer!

wow, am I the only one counting down the days TILL kindergarden?? I have been with DD almost every day since birth (shes been babysat about 5 times in her life..) I will be so happy to have a little free time. It's exciting to me!
You could always homeschool. I considered it.
My sons have been going to half day school for a couple years now. On the first day, I just tried to be really excited for them, and I made dh take Aiden to Kindergarten. I picked him up. Take the camera, take pics. It will take your mind off things a little?
I am getting really anxious about fall - both my older ones will be going from half day school to all day school :shock: Packing lunches and such, :shock:
Oh well at least I will get a little more 'read/study the Bible' and 'house cleaning' time (cause usually the most I get done now is just picking up and regular stuff, never any closet organization or home improvement type things.) Who knows, I may even get a job! :lol:
