Today I am taking Aubrey to a play date at the new pre-school she will start in Mid-August. I am nervous/excited/scared and a little sad. She will meet the teacher and the kids and we will play for an hour or so and then head back to Ms. LA's.

What if she loves it?

What if she hates it?

What if she is the problem child?

What if I haven't given her the tools to do well in a class room setting?

What if...

How did she get so big?

How did we get to preparing for kindergargen?

How did time fly by without a warning?

How do I let her go?


**Update: Aubrey was fine. She was great. She had fun, she was polite and she told the teachers her full name, age and birthdate - I didn't even know she knew her birthdate. They played outside and about 7 kids were asking to play with her and she got a bit overwhelmed but she dealt with it and had a blast.

Aw, Emily, I know just what you mean. Glad she did fine. I knew she would!

That is great that she had fun. Makes me feel better about Regan too. We have to head back over to the school Wednesday!
