Tomorrow is the day…

Tomorrow is the day I’ve been dreading for the past 5 years of my life. Tomorrow we go take a short little walk, down to the public elementary school and register my oldest, Lyric for Kindergarten. I’m not even sure that I want to go, but I know that I can’t miss out on it as we’ll get to meet the principal and teachers as well as take a tour of the classroom.

How is it that 5 years flies by so fast, I remember like it was just yesterday that I brought her home from the hospital. From that amazing day I’ve said I wanted to home school her. Unfortunately my hubby doesn’t agree with that. I’ve done my research planned it out and even told him we can try for Kindergarten since it’s not a big deal, if it doesn’t work out, fine she can go to school for 1st grade. He’s not hearing it though; he wants her to go to public school.

I’m dreading it for a number of reasons. Number one, I don’t want her going to the public school system in our area it’s below par with their grades and reputation but we can’t afford private, and the charter school, don’t even get me started on them! Number two, I don’t feel like as a parent, I should be sending my child off to strangers to be out of my reach, my sight and my hearing all day! Schools aren’t safe these days, I don’t feel safe sending my child anywhere without me, I have a hard time leaving her alone with my own parents! I feel that I have the responsibility for my child, for her safety, for her education, I shouldn’t be relying on people I don’t even know to do this.

I know, people do it every day, I went to school I was fine. I’m sure she’ll be fine too but these are the things that walk through my head. I want my kids to be safe, I want them to experience life, I want them to be educated. I don’t want them to spend their days with strangers, sitting in a building in a desk all day learning how to just ‘pass a test’ with no world knowledge. Yes, I plan to teach her at home, yes I plan to ‘home school’ even after school hours maybe not in the traditional sense but I also don’t want her to be spending hours on end AFTER school doing homework, which is the horror stories I heard will happen, yes even in Kindergarten.

Tomorrow is the day, the day my world takes a small tumble past what I believe and what I’ve been trying to stand up for, for the past 5 years. Tomorrow for once in my life, I don’t get my way, and I don’t know how to handle it. I know I’ll be a sobbing mess come the first day of school, heck I may even cry tomorrow.

How did you prepare for your child to go off to Kindergarten? How did you handle them leaving the ‘nest’? Will I be ok? lol
