next Thursday...

9:18 PM

My sweet Avery will begin Kindergarten next Thursday...

I have so many thoughts about how I feel. Jumbled up thoughts.

Her teacher called me tonight, out of the blue. I smiled. It was so nice of her take the time to ask about Avery's allergies, and what she can do to make Avery's year go smoothly. She has had allergy children before. Eases my mind a lot.

It's crazy for me to put the health of my daughter in the hand of strangers....strangers that also have to look after many other children too.

Avery has another student in her class that also has a peanut allergy.

Her class is going to have a "hand washing rule" after lunch time...this is awesome since Avery is contact reactive (if a drop of milk lands on her, her skin will react).

Her teacher also wants Avery to have her own water bottle at school instead of getting drinks out of the faucet because of the allergies. This made me smile. To know that her teacher suggested this, and not me, makes me feel comfortable.

So, not only am I sending my first-born to Kindergarten, and dealing with the sadness, excitement of that, but I'm also sending my first-born child with allergy issues to Kindergarten, and also dealing with the nervousness and anxiety of that.

Jumbled up thoughts from a nervous mother....
