......for the first stage of elementary school, KINDERGARTEN is a pretty big word, don't ya think?
Griffin starts FULL DAY Kindergarten tomorrow. Yikes!
Are there any other "first time" moms out there who are a little freaked out by the whole dropping-off-a-five year old-onto-a-playground-full-of-kids-he-doesn't-know-at-seven forty AM-and-then-just-driving-off thing??!!
I'm sure I will not be the only one lingering on the side streets, spying from my car, to make sure he's okay. For AT LEAST the first week.
To KINDLY describe myself, I'm a "worry procrastinator". Maybe it's my immense faith that everything will be okay. It pulls me through. But today, Jeff asked me if I was expecting a call from Griffin's teacher tomorrow, as he's having a breakdown because school is "too long". And now, as I sit here typing this, I am getting a little worried.......and a little sad.
I mean, there's definitely days that Griffin and I do not get along, but he has become a good helper and a good friend to Kai. His immitations are always a good laugh too. I have a feeling he'll be the entertainer for his classmates. Just yesterday, he was climbing out of the back of a truck and, while stradling the tailgate, said, "OH! MY TENDERS!" (from Kung Fu Panda). Funny.
First day of school, here we come! (fingers crossed)
