For the first time, both of my kids will be in school full day in the fall. My dd will be in kindergarden and my ds in second grade. For all of their lives, I've mostly been a SAHM, while also doing some part time music teaching.
This feels like a big transition, and I'm full of mixed emotions. I'm sad to have them gone for so much of the day, but grateful for the break. It's a wonderful public school and they're both very excited to go. I'm going to be teaching only two mornings a week.
I was wondering if others could share what their experience was like when this change of life happened for them. I think that it's a good thing, but it's a huge change for me. We won't be having any more kids, so that makes it seem even more significant.
