he is growing up
In a few weeks, the little man will be done with second grade. He will be in third grade where he was told that he will be joining with the "big kids" on the other side of the school. In his school, the big kids, the third to fifth graders are on one end of the school building while the younger kids are on the opposite side. I can understand, and like, this arrangement because it is safer this way for all the kids especially during recess. But my baby boy is growing up and so he will be where he belongs, with the big kids. He will have to go to different rooms for (advanced) classes for English and Math because he qualified for the state's gifted and talented program. He is very excited. He came home the other day with a checklist of the expectations for third grade and aside from being worried about having more subjects, he said he is actually looking forward to third grade. I am the one who is not really ready for this. I worry about him being around kids who are older and bigger than him. Also, I know he wants to act like a big kid and who knows what he might do at the playground. Silly, I know but I cannot help it. The husband said I should not worry too much. I know I need to toughen up. This is not something I can stop from happening. I just need time to get used to it. Perhaps the summer break will help me with the transition.
