Tomorrow is your first day of Kindergarten. Your backpack is packed, your lunch box is set to go and your first day of school clothes are laid out and ready. In a way, it feels like it took forever for this day to get here, but in another, I can’t believe you turned five and are starting school. Your dad and I have thought a lot about this day for the past year or more and I am still not sure we are ready for this!
I hope that as you start school, your curiosity is going to get you far, you will make friends and will always strive to do your very best. You are so smart and so charismatic. I cannot wait to see you in your classroom with your new friends though I’m sure it’ll be through tears…mine hopefully not yours. I wonder what you’ll be thinking and feeling sitting in that big seat all alone. You aren’t going to know anyone; not one person. You’ve memorized your routine and will look for your big brother when school is dismissed. You know to ask your teacher for help if you need anything. I slipped a note card into your backpack with all your information. We’ve done all we can to prepare, the rest is up to you. So have a great day tomorrow. Eat your snacks and remember to eat lunch quick, you only get 30mins, and participate during circle time. Say hello to people when they say hello to you, and do your best to make a new friend or two. Know that your dad and I are thinking about you (and most likely your brother too). I’ll be waiting for you when you get out of school in the afternoon so be ready for a big hug and probably more tears from your mom. The first day of Kindergarten is a big deal for me too you know. You’re my little boy, but this is the beginning of your big boy life and even though you are ready, I’m not sure that I am.
