I know it happens to every mum. I know I’ll survive. But my little boy heads to Pre-Prep (Kindergarten) on Monday!! He will be three years and eight months old. He is my little boy but insists of telling me he is a BIG boy now!! I am excited, nervous, sad, but also happy. I pray that we have made the right choice of school, that he will make friends, that he likes his teachers, that he will find the toilet, that he will pack up, that he will use a nice voice, that he will share/take turns…….. BUT really I hope he loves it and has fun!! We have met his teachers. We have played in his classroom. We have practiced eating out of the lunch box. I have made the Kindy sheets (which are very cute). We have our uniform. And will do a last minute drive by on Sunday to refresh Ben’s memory. He doesn’t really say much but seems to be excited. Here he is practicing how to eat using a lunch box.
On Monday I will wear my sunglasses and hide my tears. Better still I will try not to cry until I reach the car. I am not even sure what the tears are all about…. but I am a little emotional just writing this. I think the tears are all about …… I love my not so little boy Ben xo.

B you had me tearing up reading this. I am sure Ben will be just fine but I can empathise with what you are going through, that must be just so hard. When children start to grow their own wings and start finding out who they are in this big world, well that is a day I am not looking forward to because I know I will feel just as emotional as you do right now.
Will be thinking of you guys on Monday and hoping it all goes brilliantly.
Big Love, Tamxo
Belinda I was the same when Ned started Kindy last year and still the same with him going to Pre-prep this year. I think it’s harder when you have only the one child, the house is quiet and you miss talking to them but still enjoy some “me” time. It will be good for Ben as he will learn alot. I can’t believe how much Ned has grown up since going to Kindy. It only feels like yesterday they were playing around on their mats at playgroup.
You will do fine tomorrow, enjoy watching your little man enter a new phase in his life.
I am sure you BOTH will be fine. I know that he will love it. Thinking of you. Lots of love, Mum
A very specail day and the “centre of attention” will lap it up without fail. Watch out for the next day !
