I'm a little concerned about the adjustment period when Chickie goes to kindergarten. In my head, I'm imagining this scenario: Chickie is dropped off at her classroom, and while she's a little apprehensive, she's excited, and I expect her to adjust easily. But later in the day, at home, tears begin to flow. Sadness sets in...six hours is a long time to be away from a kiddo you love.
And I'm not talking about my own tears and sadness.
I'm talking about Zoodle's.
You know what I just noticed looking at this photo? My kids' toes totally look alike! For some reason I find that so adorable. Back to our regularly scheduled topic....
Lately I've realized just how attached Zoodle is to his big sister. He's had a couple of genuine meltdowns when we've tried to plan outings with only him. He wants her there with him.
I love seeing the friendship between my two kids! I'm just a little concerned about Zoodle's adjustment when he's alone with me all day.
On the other hand, I think this could be a great thing for him...helping him to develop his independence. And I'm looking forward to getting some special time with just him, like I had with Chickie before he was born.
So while Mommy may not be the only one shedding tears on August 22nd, I hope that Zoodle will quickly realize that his sister is still his friend--and weekends are even better when you have the opportunity to miss each other during the week.
