...and I thought I was ok with that! Until I walked into preschool to pick him up for the last time...all I had to do was look at Cooper's teacher and we were both in tears. I have kinda been trying to pretend it isn't happening, he CAN'T be going to school next year, he CAN'T be finishing preschool....but he is, and he has. :(
Here are some pics from this afternoon when I picked Coop up.
Getting ready to leave
Signing him out for the very last time :(
And waving goodbye to 'school'
I am sad that he has to leave his friends that have been with him since he was a baby, I am sad that he has to leave Georgie as I know they spend lots of time together at school and he was in most of her pics in her book we brought home yesterday. I am sad that he has to go to 'big school' not knowing anyone.
BUT, I am happy that he made such wonderful friends at preschool, friends that I'm sure we'll still see regardless. I am happy that Georgie will be able to 'come into her own' and grow that little bit of independance I know she needs. And I am happy that Cooper is going to a great school, the same school his Daddy went to all those years ago. And I know deep down that it'll only be the first five minutes on the first day that he doesn't know anyone, and that he'll make friends super easy.
I just wish I could slow time down a little, he was only a baby five minutes ago. xoxo
Coffee, coffee mugs, coffee...
