    My oldest goes to first day of kindergarten tomorrow, I am excited and nervous like I am going![​IMG] he seems so little. I know he will be fine, but still I feel like pacing. I know this is the easy stuff, it gets harder, but he is my little buddy, and he is growing up! So much ahead of him, hard and easy, good and bad. Gee, I sound pathetic, had to get it out!

    Aww [​IMG] You are not pathetic. My son will be a JR in HS next week and I am still scared and worried! You are right though, he will be just fine and bursting at the seams with tons of things to tell you when he comes home [​IMG]

    I feel you! I got the first day of Kindergarten blues this morning my only child just got on the bus for the first time and it was really hard watching it drive away. He was so stoked and excited tho. He is super outgoing and not shy at all, It's going to be way harder for me today than him.

    LOL those feelings NEVER go away... I started another thread where I was taking my DD off to her senior year of college & still feel like that. Once a mom, always a mom! [​IMG] Take loads of pics, you'll be glad you did in 20 years!

    Great pic! My little one was up and standing beside our bed DRESSED an hour before he needed to be this morning with back pack on! We also put him on a bus, we wanted to take him, but he is catching bus from the daycare we have used the last several years (and where my youngest still is) so we can do before and after care and snow days there. So we drove to daycare, he got on the bus with 3 kids who are his buddies. He jumped in line first and led the way with head held high.

    Getting ready to go pick him up, wow, I am excited. I can't wait to hear about it. I know it never gets easier, just knowing he has a whole life ahead of him makes me so happy, I want him to "enjoy the ride", carefully and successfully, of course! I will try to post pic this evening.
