I don't really have anyone IRL who can understand, but I'm hoping there are some mamas here who do.
Today my ds (my youngest) started "school" (well, really pre-school). I feel some kind of "empty nest" thing going on or something, lol. It's weird because my dd was even a bit younger when she started school, but I guess then I had ds (then a baby) at home with me still and so it felt different. I'm not exactly a SAHM, but all my work is after school (teaching piano lessons to kids) or in the evening (playing gigs) so I am home all day. But now with no kids! It feels so weird. And sad.
Also I'm so scared for ds - how he'll deal with being without us. Not only has he been at home with me since he was born, but now he's going to school in French and barely speaks a word of it. Dd did the same thing 3.5 years ago and it was rough at first but she adjusted quickly. I just don't want ds to have to go through any sadness! Unrealistic I know!
Anyone else relate to how I'm feeling?
