My 3 year old, who will be 4 in June, will be starting preschool next month and just the thought makes me burst into tears. He's a somewhat difficult child to begin with, not potty trained, won't know anyone, I'm so worried he's going to get in trouble or he'll have a teacher who doesn't understand him or won't have enough time for him or I'll forget to tell his teacher some crucial information about him. Or he'll get hungry because he doesn't always remember to eat when he's excited or in a new place. I've been with him everyday since he was born. My babys going to leave forever. What if I can't get him some nice clothes to wear or a nice backpack, we can't hardly afford hair cuts or pictures? I miss him already. How will I ever survive at work? Of course he needs to learn things and I want him to make friends and he needs exercise especially but how am I going to survive, what if the other kids are mean to him????
