I registered Laney for Kindergarten this week. We went to the school office and Laney got to look around a little bit. She is very excited to start school and wants to go tomorrow! I on the other hand, am not so sure about all this. I looked into some private schools, but they are way too expensive. A part of me knows she is going to love school because she loves to learn, but another part of me feels like I'm handing my newborn Laney over to the wolves. I'm praying for peace, because I think this is the right decision for right now, but I need some more peace about it. I've gotten comfortable at home taking care of my kids and this is kind of breaking me out of my comfort zone. I want to keep her here in the comfort of my arms. Next year, I have to make her a lunch everyday and get her to and from school. Right now I only have to worry about taking the girls out every so often and come August we have to be presentable every day. I remember thinking, when Laney was two, that school was a long way away and I don't have to worry about it. It has crept up very quickly. I put school on the back burner and now it's two and a half months away. I'm sure I will be bawling my eyes out on her first day of school.
I am a mommy to four girls, ages 7, 5, 4, and 3. My oldest and youngest have brown eyes and brown hair(clones of my husband) and the middle two have red hair and blue eyes. I am the wife to a wonderful husband. Somedays I really feel for him, living in this house with five women. There are days that I feel like the most wonderful mother, and other days that I feel I am barely making it. But that's what being a parent is all about. Right! And all the kisses and giggles.
