I’m Worried

It is confirmed – Little Edison will start his Nursery class in Jan 2010, which is just two months away from now. We received a confirmation from the church kindergarten last week.

Seriously, I have a mixed feeling about him going to school next year. To think about it positively, I believe that he will benefit from the group-learning environment in the kindergarten. He will also enjoy the companionship and opportunity to socialize with children of his age.

On the flip side, I’m worried about his level of independence. He is barely 27 months in January next year. Is he too young for school? Will he hate me for sending him to school at such a tender age? Will he cry when I leave him at school? Can he eat meals on his own at school? Can he take care of himself at school? Can he convey what he needs to his teacher?

worryI have endless questions in my mind now. I’m confused. And I’m just soOoo worried.

Mummies, if you are sending your two-year-old to Nursery next year, can you tell me how you feel now?
