It’s a very sad time and also a very proud time for hubby and I. Our Little Man who was 4 in May will be starting school in just over 3 months.
How do we feel about this?? Its bitter-sweet for us, were both so happy he is moving on to a new chapter in his life and growing up. However where is our baby gone. It only seems like 5 minutes ago that I gave birth to him. I am really sad that Little Man and 4 of his friends are all going to the same school, he however is in one class and the other 4 are in another class. This really upsets me, how do I explain to a 4-year-old that he will be on his own but his friends will all be together. I think this is the thing worrying us the most, well more me worrying about it. I have told him as I want him to know when he starts rather than it being a shock.
I will miss him being with me everyday, although he really annoys me with his ways sometimes he is just being a child and I will miss it. I am not ready to let go of my baby yet. I am not ready for other people to be looking after him everyday and I certainly am not ready for the government to tell me when I can and can’t take my boy on holiday. I will miss our silly days and the laughs we have. I have to keep telling myself that he will be really happy at school and I know he will be just fine. He’s growing up and that’s just how it has to be. I know we will still be able to have all of this, just have to wait for weekends.
We are both so proud of how far he has come in his 4 years of life. He is growing into a loving, kind and caring little boy. I know that when he starts school I will be more of a mess than he is. I know he will make new friends and have many happy years at school. It’s all new to us though so obviously we will have worry and concerns.
If you went through this last year I would love to hear from you and your fears and if it all turned out to be OK.
