Sending my baby off to school

Tomorrow morning is the big day. Jack will be going to his first day of school. I am NOT looking forward to the morning. I should be in bed right now, but sleep will just make time go by faster. I have selfishly considered not sending Jack to school. Honestly, I am going to miss him for those few hours each morning terribly. I could count the hours Jack and I have been apart since he was born and I think this will be much harder for me than him. It was so hard for me to make him go to bed tonight for I know tomorrow night and each night after he will seem less and less like my baby, but more and more like the big boy that I know school will help him to become.

How can this little baby be ready to go to school?

Tomorrow is going to be a rough one for me.
Keep me in your thoughts.

You're in my thoughts - it does get better after the first day. We are on day 7 and still working on it! You can do it!

It doesn't get any easier. Wait till you have two or three or four kids to drop off at school for the entire day.

I agree w/ Holly/Chad - I still want to cry watching Stella walk in with her big backpack. But hey, you're free for a couple of hours! Enjoy it while you can!

Okay. I was doing fine reading your blog, until I saw the baby pic of your little boy. Why do they have to be so cute and sweet as babies, so we miss them so much when they start to grow into big kids??
