My baby started Kindergarten this week and I am soooo proud of her for being such a brave little girl. She is everything I wish I could be. She's confident, outgoing and easily makes new friends. She is so sure that it will be great, and even if she runs into a problem she just lets it roll off her back. I pray and pray and pray that she continues through life just like this. When I first went to school, I lost everything that made me like her and it only got worse as I got older. I just want her to stay Her.
We also decided that it is in her best interest to go full day. I know. I hate the idea of her being in school, away from me, but I am having her go more than required? Yeah. It's part of what is so wonderful about her. She craves learning and new experiences. She wants to play and be engaged. She was disappointed that she was only going to school half day, so when I found out that there was room in the enrichment program that some of her friends are attending, I jumped on it. She will get a full day of fun and friends, get to eat lunch in the cafeteria like a big kid and get what she needs for her smart little brain :) It kinda kills me and I have been agonizing over it, but I think it's the best decision.
Another bonus to her attending school all day is that it allows her brothers to take center stage with their Daddy and Grandmothers during the day. Little Man has struggled a bit with his place since Nemo was born. He wants to be the baby and a big boy all at once. I think that if he can be the Big Brother more and have one-on-one time while Nemo naps, he will feel better and get more of what he needs. I want to be the one to give that to him all day, but Daddy and Grandmas are the very next best thing.
Ok. There's more, but I think that's enough for now. Thanks for the therapy session ;)
