I had my break-down...

over my baby going to kindergarten next year. We have him all signed up, and he went in for his "kindergarten screening" earlier this week. The woman who "screened" him (one of the kindergarten teachers at his future school) said he did great, and he's ready, so there you have it.

Alex is a June baby, and we could have waited another year to send him. There were a lot of reasons, really, why we should have waited another year to send him. There were a few, stronger reasons that ultimately helped us make the decision. And I'm still not 100% convinced we have made the right one. He's a smart kid. He certainly knows everything he needs to know going into kindergarten (and then some). He could be slightly more mature, but then he's a boy. (I know adult men who might not be mature enough to go to kindergarten.) He's a good boy - he'll do fine.

So after all that the only thing left to do was to have a breakdown over it, and I'm happy to report I've checked that off my to-do list. I'm not sure I'm ready for my baby boy to go to school all day next year. (Kindergarten here is all day - you don't get a choice.) But I will try to focus on the positives. I will have more time for myself, which I've needed since the day he came into this world. I will have more opportunity to focus on my new project. I'll have time to sit in tears and ponder where the last five years went.

I won't do that.

Well, maybe just a little.
