Well, the big day arrived and it wasn't as bad as I thought! I was having mommy-emotions the night before, in disbelief that my babies were starting kinder (and Jack was turning 1 the following week, as well as being completely weaned). Lots of things were happening to signify that all 3 of my babies were growing up. It was also the first year that Owen and Mason would be in separate classes. I think I was dreading this (for their sake) more than they were. But I forget how resilient kids are, and it didn't phase them a bit! They were just looking forward to finding each other on the playground!
