Tomorrow is Reagan's big 3rd birthday and also the day that she starts her special needs preschool. I am so happy for her to be starting school, going to a place to meet other children, some that have disabilities also. I am also happy that the teacher and team that will be working with her seem like wonderful, caring women. But I am also VERY anxious and nervous.
I have been looking forward to this day and now I find that I am dreading it. I am really, really going to miss her. Yes, it's only 4 hours in the morning, maybe 5 with the traveling. But it feels like I am letting her go a little, letting her become a big girl, and it makes my heart heavy. Of course, I really have no control of her growing up but preschool at 3, is that crazy?!? Everyone I talked to says that she is going to love it and it will be a great separation for both of us. I know she is going to learn so much at school and enjoy having new friends. I need to tell the overprotective Mom voice in my head to relax a little, it'll be okay!
