I"m not a Stay at Home Mom, but just sent my son to 4K for the first time last week. It about killed me when he took his teacher's hand and never even looked back. I guess that means that he's ready for it and I just have to let go. He seems to be doing well with it and he's loving it.
I only cried dropping him off that first day.

Well, I'm still waiting on the information packet, but it's a tuition free public school. They send you the class materials, books, workbooks, etc. (And I'm not positive, but I believe they also provide a laptop computer to take the courses on). They do face to face teaching of classes via webcam. I did actually discover that it will be a bit longer before they'll take our daughter for kindergarten as they start at age 5 (Some of our local schools will take more gifted students at age 3). You could learn more here www.connectionsacademy.com/home.aspx

My daughter is going to Kdg next year. I am sad that she's growing up, but I'm trying to focus on how great it will be for her to make new friends, learn new things, and become more independent.

I don't have to worry about kindergarten for another year, but I also am not fond of most of our public schools, and the private schools are SO EXPENSIVE. The one I'd really like to send her to is $8000 for half days per semester. Because of that, I think we're going to send her to cyberschool, so I won't really have to deal with sending her off. I'll tell ya this much though, it kills me when my aunt comes over (which is almost daily) and my daughter doesn't want to have anything to do with me while she's there. To keep my mind off that fact, I either take that time to get in my workout, or cook something yummy... or catch up on my DVR or e-mails. Having as much time as a school day, I'd probably clean too.

I have been feeling a little depressed about my daughter starting Kindergarten. I'm a stay at home Mom and to not have her around is going to be hard. Has anyone else felt this way?, if so how did you deal with it?
