My Little Boy

Tomorrow I will be taking my son, Nico to register for Kindergarten for the fall. I still can't wrap my head around the fact that my first born child, my baby boy, who weighs a whopping 89 pounds and is over 4 feet tall and almost 5 years old is going to school already. Where on earth does the time go? I remember the day I brought him home. Before long, I will be sending my baby girl, too. I sigh knowing how hard it will be for me to put him on the bus that first day. Everyone keeps telling me, you will rejoice, celebrate, jump up and down! No way! I love my kids and love being home with them all day and watching them learn and grow. Yeah, there are days that are trying and stressful, but I wouldn't trade them for anything! I was so blessed to have been able to stay home and be with them all these years. I am glad I am the one who taught them to write and walk and do everything they know how to do up to now. I know now it's time to let go and set him free. (A little bit) But I will always be that hovering mommy who loves her little boy more than anything in the whole world, and I bet I will be the proudest mommy of all the Kindergarten mommies there tomorrow. My son is by far the smartest, most handsome, polite, little boy ever. And I like to take some of the credit for that!

Okay, I though my five year old was a big guy! He weighs 47lbs. Now sure on the height, though! Good luck with the kindergarten stuff, I can't imagine sending my 5 year old, he's too big a baby. Though, he'd probably love it!

You homeschool right? I would love to do that...not sure I have the mental patience for that. I'll have to ask you a few questions about that sometime. That always interested me. Mine is a big baby too, he's already whining and crying and it doesn't start until FALL!!!! geesh!

Yep. we homeschool, and Luke already loves it. I wouldn't send him at 5, if he were going to school, (I would wait until he turned 6) but I will start him in kindergarten in the fall here at home. He's already mastered a lot of the skills.
Ask me any questions you like! I am always glad when people ask!
I'm sure your Nico will be great! Blessings, Megan
