The kids have been troopers. They headed back to preschool with such ease. I on the other hand had a harder time. I mean, work was fine, but I had an issue with them going back to school. I had gotten used to having them around 24/7. So I struggled with them being away all day long. And they seemed just fine without me. Don't get me wrong! I LOVE that they attend preschool! It's healthy for them to be in an environment full of learning, full of kids their own age. Plus I love their school!! But I miss them terribly during the day!
I'm thinking it's time that I start volunteering more at their school. Not only will this give me the opportunity to stay connected with the kids, yet give them the chance to be with their friends, it will also allow me to get connected with other Moms. Which I desperately need.
How do you stay connected with your kids, but still also allow them a bit of freedom?
