Well I am so very nervous. My oldest daughter will be starting kindergarden this year and I am lost. I have been a stay at home mother for the past 5 years, and my two daughters and I haven`t been apart for more than a little bit at a time. They do go to grandma`s house for a sleepover every once in a while but that`s it. I personally am not worried about her because she is very excited to be going to school and meeting new people. However I am a little worried about my youngest daughter because she has never been apart from her sister since the day that she was born. I know that I will be home to keep her company but I am afraid that she will be sad that her playmate is going to be away from the house during the day. Any suggestions on how to make the transition a little easier for everyone involved? I am hoping that my little one won't mind too much especially if she is going to be the center of attention while her sister is at school. Can't wait to hear your suggestions. Thanks again.

When my oldest went to kindergarten I started a home daycare. It just worked out that way, and I had sometimes as many as five little girls with birthdays less than three months apart. I also took my youngest to activities at the library and at the YMCA, for socialization. I just enjoyed time with her as well.
