Oh my gosh,he'll be 5!

My son will be 5 in about a week. I didn't think anything of it, or the fact that we "signed up" for kindergarten on Friday, until today. In fact I didn't even think much about the fact that my friend and fellow blogger Katie blogged about signing her son up for kindergarten just days before. I think I commented about how mixed my emotions would be once he went to kindergarten, how much time I would have with my daughter yada, yada, yada. I LIED! I started thinking more about it today when I was among some friends that have kids a bit younger than my son, friends that have essentially watched him grow up just like I have theirs. I was asked a question about his upcoming birthday, and I just about lost it! I told them I had signed him up for kindergarten , and almost cried. Now every time I think about it...I just about lose my cool! My little 3lb 14oz baby is going to school. I don't think this should happen and nevermind that I have about 6 months to contemplate and to be ready for it...I just don't think kids should grow up! Also, just to let you know, by 21 month old will NOT be having a birthday this year....she will NOT be turning 2. She WILL be 1 year old FOREVER!!! PS Thanks for your Valentine Day comments...I think it is cool to know about other people's traditions, or even lack thereof!
