Kindergarten Already?!?

I am so full of mixed emotions right now that it is not even funny! I know that this has been a long time coming, but my sweet baby is not a baby anymore. Sydney starts kindergarten in exactly ONE WEEK!

How in the world is this even possible?!? I mean I know she is ready. In reality she is so beyond ready. She loved preschool and has missed it every single day since we moved.  

Kindergarten is such a big step. This is the start of a very long journey for her! Instead of the 2.5 hours a day that she attended preschool, she will now be going for the entire day. This will be the most that I have been away from her since she was born!  

We go and meet her teacher on Tuesday! Normally I would be nervous and freaking out about all of the little questions you ask yourself at this point. But we are extremely lucky! All of the kindergarten teachers at this school are really really nice, but I actually know her teacher. I grew up around her, and I know that Sydney will be in amazing hands! 

Now that the worry is gone, I go back to these mixed emotions. There are some days when I am almost in tears thinking about Sydney starting school, and then there are days when I am like "thank god!". Lol. I work from home, so I will be able to focus on work when she is in school and focus on just being mommy when she isn't. I know that she is going to have so much fun, learn so much, and maybe even make some life long friends. So as nervous/sad as I am about her starting, I am also so excited! 

My baby starts kindergarten in one week, and it's a really good thing!
