Yep, I’m that mom — already getting nervous & feeling sad about sending Jacyn to Kindergarten……

— why are you sad??? That’s how it’s supposed to be. You’re the parent. You teach them to be independent. —

I know. But I’m still sad, ok.

I just am! πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

it’s going to be. so. tough. on my heart….

Back in November, I made the decision to pull Jacyn out of pre-K…. & it was actually an easy decision for me.

But for some reason, when I tell other moms, I feel like they think I’m crazy.

Maybe I am? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

I loved her pre-K and she had a great teacher, but I wanted her to be home with me….. Aren’t I so selfish?

I kept thinking that once Jacyn starts Kindergarten in the fall // in six months 😳 // in 204 days 😭 — once that happens, she’s in school forever, until college!!!!

Oh my heart.

She needs some time at home with momma… (& vice versa)!!!

Ben & I both feel she is where she needs to be socially & likely academically, so he agreed to let me pull her & have her home…

I’m trying extra hard to work with her on skills. There is no part of me that feels like she is behind or will be when she is in Kindergarten.

The last two weeks, we have been working on writing numbers 1-5, making letter sounds, and using a computer & mouse, rather than a touch screen (that was interesting)….

I am a little proud that today I actually incorporated our letter sounds into our LOL playtime… she loved it! so did MerBaby. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

I’d love ideas of important skills to work on in my final 204 days with Jacyn at home for school…. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ˜­

It’s so difficult to know what is best for our kiddos!!!! But I sure am trying!!

If you have a negative thought about my decision, I’m okay with that — but I just don’t want to hear it :-))) I’m at peace with my decision & know it is best for us!

We made sugar cookies today, too!!!

they were Jacyn’s idea — take a guess!!! They’re going to be so magical ;-)))

Oh, and that makeup!! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Love — Ann (& J & Hattie)
