Too Fast

My big girl is growing up so fast. Too fast. 

Today the news broke that the school here in town is moving to full-time Kindergarten next year. (They already do full days, just every second day.) 

My Mommy friends here in town are thrilled. I absolutely get the things they are excited about - it will decrease on childcare costs, make childcare easier, the kids love school and will be excited to go, they are used to full days at daycare anyway, etc. 

I myself have often thought full-time Kindergarten is no big deal. So why is it making me so sad? I am almost panicked at the thought of having only 1 more year with Talia at home. She's not even home half-time, since I'm at work, and she already goes to nursery school a few mornings a week. I know she'll be ready for it and will love it. I'm just so sad that her time to be home is quickly slipping away.

Full time, every day?? We do half days every day. I've often though full days every other day would be perfect. Half days are pretty much annoying.

But I hear you. I'm not panicked about 1/2 days in K, the thought of her being gone for a full day in Gr 1 makes me sick to my stomach.
