Preschool Looms.

My precious boy goes off to preschool this week. It's a new school. I am having a hard time with this. As a gesture of smothering mommy love, I made him this super cool skateboard totebag out of a pillowcase he wasn't using. It was used to transport important supplies to his classroom (3 pairs of clean, dry underpants, a change of clothes, a pillow for resting time, etc.) The pillow was also crafted by me, as they requested that we send a "very small pillow because space is limited". It was adorable. just the right size for his sweet little head, and complete with iron-on letters of his entire name (first, middle and last)--his idea.

I am looking for comfort in these little gifts. It's only working a little. I am glad that he'll have these pretty things to remind him that he's loved all day long and to give him courage, but it will still be difficult to see the look on his face as I walk away. Maybe he'll surprise me by being far more ready for this than I am. He surprises me all the time.
What a cute bag. Its so hard to let them go, my youngest starts Kindergarden tomorrow and I'm having such a hard time with it as it will be the first time in 11 years I won't have kids at home.
So, you definately understand my pain.
It would be easier if I had an ultra social child who couldn't wait to spend all day at school. I don't. My sweet boy can be a little overwhelmed by large groups and strangers. He is sensitive and sweet and gentle. He can also be bold is super-good at expressing his feelings. I think he's a bit bored at home, so this should be a good experience overall. Thanks for your thoughts and sympathy!
