Starting Kindergarten

My worries

I began to feel anxious! These thoughts whirled around and around in my mind:

  • Has it really been five years since we brought this little bundle of joy home from the hospital?  How could she be old enough for this? 
  • Is she ready? 
  • Am I ready? 
  • Oh my goodness! I will not be there to watch over her in the classroom, on the playground, and when the teacher is not watching!
  • This is scary!

As I recall the first day she was to walk all by herself down that long sidewalk, then down the long hall to her classroom, I remember the lump in my throat.  When I stopped in the car line, I told her I loved her and a stranger opened the car door and welcomed her to school. As I drove out of the parking lot, tears streamed down my face. 

I Need Oxygen!

Starting Kindergarten is a normal, expected life event for four million children in the United States each year, yet my heart was racing and my hands felt numb.  I was dizzy, weak and needed oxygen!

I knew in my heart that the “oxygen” I needed in anxious times like this was God’s very presence – His peace and comfort and assurance that He would answer my prayers to guide, equip and protect her each day. 

Are you feeling anxious?

What about you, mama? How are you feeling about your baby starting Kindergarten? Are you feeling anxious?
