Really? Preschool?! REALLY!!!???

Tomorrow, my sweet baby boy starts preschool!  AH!  I thought I was so okay until tonight as we were working on his first 'homework' assignment.  (Details to follow!)  I listened to him go on and on and on and on about how excited he was to meet new friends, 'get comfortable' with Mrs. Gassiot, and do more homework.  He is so smart.  So kind.  So creative.  So funny.  So loving.  So big.  I broke all of the 'rules' tonight and laid with my big boy until he fell asleep.  He held my arm like he always has and rubbed it until he was dreaming away.  Before he drifted off, though, he said, "Mom, I think I might miss you tomorrow.  Will you wait in the parking lot for me?"  I am so very blessed, but tonight, I am 'that mom.'  Kind of sad.  Kind of excited.  Incredibly proud.  Clearing off the camera card for a gaggle of pictures tomorrow morning.  You know, totally normal.
