Yes, he's my baby :cry: my big baby...and he's about to start school. IDK how this happened....I was holding him for the first time just the other day...
Anyways...how are you all handling it? lol did it hit you yet? Bought all the supplies and uniforms (if necessary)?
How are you little ones taking it, are they looking forward to it?
Alex is super excited, we got his TMNT backpack and lunch box in the mail a few days ago and he was so happy. We got his uniforms and I'm shopping around for his supplies.
Almost every day he's asking me if it's school day lol
Ahhh I can't believe he's going to school lol
Im trying to pretend like its not happening :'( hes my ONLY baby and im freaking depressed that hes going to school lol
I havnt bought anything cause its not real yet I dont think...
lo on the other hand has been asking me to go to school for a year now lol
Yes! Im excited and so is she.We start school shopping out of SOs check this week.
Its not so bad for me lol. Cause I homeschool. My baby baby is not starting school though, but my 4.5 year old is starting pre-school this year with me :D
This was the hardest thing for me. When DD started pre k she was so excited then the actually first day came and it broke my heart the way she cried for me leaving her. I ALMOST DIDNT BRING HER BACK...LOL
Im like you I just have no idea how this time got here lol
Im just worried for him because hes never been in a structured environment or around tons of kids. Hes also very empathetic and loving, Im scared that all the kids that their parents refuse to actually parent are going to try and stomp that out of him. *sigh* Im such a worrier!
DS starts pre-k this year. I am so excited. He needs to be around new kids. Since my daughter was born he has been acting out so hopefully it will help with that too.
Cora starts kinder this year and she is beyond excited. She has been waiting YEARS to go to school lol
I have nothing cause they haven't put out school shopping lists yet and we don't have our teacher assignments yet.

This is one of my worries, Alex is so laid back and sweet and caring. His little brother actually tries to boss him around and he sees no issue with it :/ thankfully my nephew (who is only a couple of weeks younger than him) is going to start school too and I'm hoping they will be together, it's a small town too so I hope that helps.
I still worry though, I just keep telling him that it's good to be sweet and polite and caring, but just like I tell his little brother not to be mean to him because it's not good, that the same goes for the kids in school and he needs to tell his teacher or daddy or me if someone is being mean.
Quoting Cockfetti:" My big baby starts kindergarten this year. I'm okay with it because she did the whole pre-k thing last year. I'm nervous about her riding the bus. Lol"
I would hate to hear that someone was troubling my baby on the school bus, kids can be mean no matter the age. This is my biggest fear. I'd have to go Madea on someones child...lol j/k.
He's staring preschool Sep 3rd. I mainly just feel excited for him. He's been home with DH and I his whole life, and I know he's super bored during the weekdays while I'm at work because DH doesn't take him out of the house ever. I haven't done any shopping. Since it's a private pre-k, they provide all the supplies so all my LO needs is a lunch box and new school clothes. He's excited to go!!
I just worry about him making friends. He wants friends so bad and all the ones he's had have moved away or have been super busy the past 6 months. He's barely had any play dates lately and if he meets a kid at the park and they have fun, he's devastated when it's time to go home.

See that's my Kaden too! He goes with the flow so much he doesn't want to hurt anyones feelings. Im going to start bringing up that if someone is mean to him he needs to talk to the teacher or us about it. Im just scared it will scare him out of wanting to go to school though.

I try not to make it into a big thing. Like I mention it when his little brother is mean I'll say something like "It's not nice doing ____, and what do we do when that happens? we tell a grown up right?" or if he's watching something on TV where someone is being mean I'll ask them "what do we do if someone is being mean?"
Quoting Supafly★TKO:" He's starting pre-k this year and I'm so nervous. He's never away from me on a regular basis, ever. ... [snip!] ... and they'll call CPS. The list goes on and on. But all in all I think it will be good for him. He's excited to start. "
awww....I think at moments like these, our kids will surprise us with just how capable they are of adapting, and we're going to be like "ohhh, well that went better than expected" lol
