Preschool started yesterday

Both my girls are now in preschool. My eldest is almost 4, and my youngest daughter turned 2 in June. Over the last month, their teacher sent me some emails about when school was going to start and such. She had said it was going to start after Labour Day. Since Labour Day is this coming Monday, I thought it was going to start the day after. I go on Facebook yesterday, to see that two of the moms posted pictures of the first day of preschool. So, I call the teacher, who told me that it started yesterday. Since I knew my girls wanted to go, I quickly got them ready, and got them to school. They were really happy to be there. So this is the second morning they're at preschool. It's pretty quiet. As much as I do miss them and it's not easy seeing them grow up, I do think they're having fun and it's good for them, as well as for me. As a mom, it's not easy, but I am proud of them. I'm enjoying seeing them grow, do more things on their own, and seeing the people they become.

I am sure you miss them, but it's good to bring them there if they like.

Yes, I do miss them, but since they enjoy going, I'll gladly keep bringing them. It's good for them. They get to interact with other kids, learn and such. And I do get a bit of a break.

@dodo19 The break is nice! Especially if your kids are always asking you questions and you can't get anything done.

Preschool is fun and kids usually enjoy it immensely. It's a good introduction to the whole school thing and they will have to be ready when kindergarten rolls around. Enjoy the peace, you deserve some time, too.

I have to agree. It is good preparation for them. It gives them something to do. Although it may take some time to get used to, I'm sure I'll enjoy the peace and quiet.

That's nice to have both kids in school. I just had a new baby so it will be a while for me.
