My almost 3 year old recently started preschool and I am having a lot of trouble adjusting......

I am a stay at home mom and I am having some trouble adjusting to the fact that my daughter recently started preschool. My daughter is not potty trained yet but her teachers have been working with her to help train her. She seems to be mostly ready for the process, so her teachers told me to stop bringing her to school in diapers. They only want her wearing underwear in school. So now, not only am I dealing with major separation anxiety, I am also dealing with the stress of potty training her at home. This is all a bit much for me to handle because things seem to be moving way to fast for me. I never really wanted to put my daughter in preschool this year, since I am home. However, my husband felt as if our daughter would greatly benefit from preschool, being that she is extremely advanced, socially and emotionally. So I sent her. I did not think that sending her to preschool would be this hard on me. Are there any other mothers out there who have experienced a similar situation? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

My daughter is 3 also. We did the same thing and just took away her diapers. Best thing I ever did. She just stopped wetting. As for the separation anxiety, is it you or her? Does she like school? How many times a week? My daughter is only there 2 times. She LOVES it.

I went to work in her classroom and she told me to go home! But she's just very self-sufficient. Find a moms group for yourself. Get out there and do something. Go shopping, get some coffee. I found and love it. Try that it's worldwide.
