My 5-year-old said to me this morning, "Mom, guess what tomorrow is".
"It's the first day of Kindergarten."
"Are you excited?"
He hesitated. Every other time we've talked about it, he's been really excited, but this time he seemed nervous... "Are you nervous?"
I reminded him that I got to stay with him on the first day, and that his teacher (who came over last week and brought him a balloon) is really nice. His worried look left and he ran off to play with his brother.
I'm excited for him. It's going to be weird to have him gone every morning, but hopefully it will be a good experience for all of us. I'm a little worried about the 2-year-old, because he kind of seems lost when his brother is gone. It will be fun to walk to the school to pick up his brother though.
