In less than two weeks Lucas will be attending preschool. It's crazy, I know! How did he get to be such a big boy? I feel like we just brought him home from the hospital, swaddled him and were protecting his head, but like it or not, here we are getting ready for his first day of school.
I am really excited for all the new things Lucas is going experience and learn, expert direction he is going to receive, friends he's going to make and fun he is going to have. I loved school and I hope he does to!
Child's Full Name
I just read, filled in the blanks and signed more than a dozen pieces of paper with my son's new school's insignia prominently placed at the top of each page.
While easy to answer these questions about my son, his habits and his health, each one made me a little sadder than the last. He's only two.
In Case of an Emergency Contact
Parent's Evaluation of Child's Personality
So many signatures.
I feel like it's time, I agreed it was time, but now that we are just days away, I'm second guessing myself. Are we doing the right thing by sending Lucas to preschool?
Field Trip Permission Slip
Children's Disaster/Earthquake Kit
Permission to Photograph
For so long, it's been me and Lucas, Monday through Saturday, 8 - 10 hours a day. Day in and day out.
I know I'm only giving him up nine hours a week, but it feels like so much more than that. This feels like it's just the beginning of him being pulled away from me...
...and I'm going to miss him.
