Woah! Let me off!
You probably know by now how intensely closed off with my kids I am... I have this gut feeling I can do this myself, that I don't need the breaks typical moms do. No, I haven't left him at preschool by himself, and no, we haven't had a babysitter. Not one.
So how is it that I'm about to send my baby to kindergarten without me next week? What happened?? Where did the time go? How did I let this happen?
I am immensely grateful for the nurse who, by all accounts, has dropped from the sky, living a gluten free/dairy free diet herself, dog-loving, Transformers-enduring wonder woman she appears to be. But at the same time, what on EARTH am I going to do with 3 hours to myself everyday?
Aiden has taken to her, she appears more-than-competent, and Lexie loves her (too much?). So why do I feel like I'm going to be floundering come Thursday? I will be strong and happy for him. He is beyond excited, and I should be too. I am. Or I will be. But Holy Cow, this is a lot harder to process than it was when Owen and Alec climbed aboard that big yellow bus. Stay tuned...
