ya got me trippin'

Today my "baby" graduates from Preschool...yesterday was his last real day. How did that happen? Seems like he just started and he has been going to the same cozy place with the same cozy teachers for 3 years. I wasn't planning on having him do anything at 2.5, but a spot was there and it was a way to get our feet in the door at a program that is very small (through the community center) and sought-after. So he began three years ago for about four hours a week in two mornings. The next year was a bit more, maybe seven or eight hours over three days. This year has been every afternoon for three hours and the progress he has made is incredible. At the start of the year his drawing were still "scribble scrabble" and now they are actual people with so much detail, and he can spend hours doing art. He is starting to read a little and I think he's really ready for Kindergarten. But it seems like I was just pregnant with him!
I'm excited by the independence for both of us, but a little weepy too.

Congratulations, Momma! I'm weepy, too, for you.

Aaah, such a double edged sword! I can't imagine how it will feel to see my youngest graduate school. Congrats to him though, and you! What a major acomplishment!

Thanks Corin...poor guy - asked for how long the "full day" school is (K will be full day) & I said "forever"...he got pretty wide-eyed...he's used to longing with me in the mornings!
