Am I the only one getting really nervous about sending my little one off to preschool?

I've chosen to homeschool.
I'm not worried about socialization, I believe in a rounded socialization. Having the ability to befriend and enjoy the company of any age, I really dislike the practice of age segregation, it doesn't happen in real life, we shop with, have neighbors, go to church, work with all ages and stages of life.
Hmmm, I guess I'm a little defensive, I've been attacked often enough about 'socialization' I'm starting proactive defense...not accusing or attacking anyone! Just stating my reasons on why I believe homeschool is actually better about socializing. Just another option to consider.
There is so much more to say about the subject but I'm already typing one handed. I'll answer any questions happily!

I'm more okay with it now than at first such as yourself but i haven't got over how quiet the house is, so quiet in fact i can hear the crickets. many times i find myself walking around a store for something to do but its not the same without my son.
Now that she has started and we have made it through a few days I am not nervous or worried any more. She is doing AMAZING and her teacher is always telling me how she is the only one that listens and how good she is doing. I just have to keep myself busy while she is in school because I tend to pace a lot when I have nothing to do. Oh and I HATE shopping without kids! Learned that the hard way when I went grocery shopping the other day with the hubby. Kids make hubby's shopping habits less annoying!

I gotta say i've been a stay-at-home mom since my son turned one and I thought sending him to pre-k was going to be awful and although i got choked up a bit i didnt cry and he loves it which is surprising because he's somewhat shy
This is my youngest so I think that is why it is so hard. I am not used to having any time to myself and don't even remember what it is like! My hubby has started joking today that maybe it is time to start trying for that third we have been wanting for sometime now. Hehe.

Ah..... I see. I know exactly what you are feeling. I still feel sad when I drop her off in the morning. It just takes time to get used to it. It's like your heart is sinking into your stomach, but as long as you know she is in the best hands possible, everything will be alright. Make sure to go grocery shopping. You'll find how much easier it is! Of course I LOVE having my little personal shopper hanging off the cart, but it's nice to just run in and run out! Now, if you have two little sweeties, after one is dropped off, you will create more one on one time for your second child. It's a win-win! \(^.^)/
I am feeling nervous. I am a stay at home and never really have much time away from her. It isn't that I am worried about my daughter anymore because she does great with others. It is more I am getting nervous on how I am going to handle not having her there.
