I realize it’s the beginning of August and Summer isn’t over yet, but I took Little One shopping for school items yesterday. *Gasp* I know. Crazy. She’ll be entering Junior Kindergarten and is SO excited about it. Since we don’t have the list of school supplies yet, we just went to get some new clothes (everything is too short or too small on her now!) and her school bag.
She has a school bag already, but apparently the kids need a full sized one. I love the adorable Skip Hop penguin one she has, but I was told it’s too small.
Our little excursion and seeing Little One carrying her school bag all of a sudden triggered that flash forward moment of seeing her getting on the school bus for the very first time with a school bag bigger than her! I almost cried in the middle of the store. She’s only 3.5 years old. She’s too little to be going to school!
Friends have told me to “get over it”, but the thought of seeing her get on that school bus and seeing that bus whisk her away just makes me want to cry!
Someone hold me! Come Fall, I know there will be a lot of tears! Ha! They won’t be coming from Little One either! She’s totally ready for school! It’s Mom who is not!
