We went to kindergarten registration for my oldest tonight. Although I’m sure I’ll get emotional when she actually goes – right now I’m just excited for her next year. She’s really excited too – let’s hope it lasts. She is going to a Spanish Immersion program and she did let me know that she really doesn’t know that much Spanish yet 🙂 – which was too cute. She is a typical first-born so I know that the transition to kindergarten – or any unknown to her for that matter – will be tough. But what really threw me off tonight was my youngest’s reaction. Lucy has one more year of preschool next year while Bridget starts kindergarten. They’ve both been at the same school this year. On the way out of registration Lucy was crying. I thought she had run into a door, bumped her head, the usual – so I picked her up and asked what was wrong. She had big crocodile tears coming down her cheeks and she said, “We won’t be at the same school next year.” Be still my overly emotional motherly heart. This parenting thing is hard.
