The day is finally here. She is on her way to kindergarten. I have been dreading it all weekend. My girl is now at the mercy of people I don’t know. The worst part of dropping her off today wasn’t the sadness of her growing up or of her not being home anymore. It was the fact that I am handing over one of my most precious loves to a complete stranger. I won’t be there to make sure she is well cared for or loved. I have to trust a stranger. We have never done daycare or even had a babysitter who isn’t family. The only time my children are handed off to strangers is at church for a couple of hours.
Jeremy and I have prayed that this experience is the best. I hope through preparations I can keep the mornings stress-free. I know that her love of learning and positive experiences at school with shape Makayla’s opinion of school before she attends herself.
