How will I cope with this little one (whom I've stayed-at-home with every day of her life) away at school all day, five days a week? What will happen when she breaks into tears, when she gets frustrated with something she's trying to do but can't? Will she say something that could, in the short term, embarrass me? Like, will she tell her teacher "my mommy sits in front of the computer all day," in that exaggerated way, but mention nothing of the fact that I'm a writer? Will an older kid pick on her? Will a girl in her class decide she doesn't want to be friends? Will something she says or does reflect on me as a mother, in a negative way? Will I stop worrying?
This is the picture I took last year, on the first day of preschool. *sniffle*
On Wednesday I'll post a new one. *sniffle*
