Don't worry I'm sure you'll be fine. For me I have three kids. My oldest is now in second grade and my middle is starting kindergarten tomorrow. I've always just made a fun day out of it. Like I asked them to be able to tell me the name of one new friend or something they learned that I didn't know. Just keeping my mind off of it. Asking them what they think they will do today. It's great now that my oldest is in second grade because she now lets her sister know what she did.

PS. I did cry the night before when I was getting her backpack ready. Your a mom it will happen. =) Good Luck hope you did great!

I know I can do it. I just don't want to break down in front of him and have him feel scared or like something is wrong. I can do it though, this can't be the hardest part of being a mother.. not even the hardest part so far! Thanks!
