Tomorrow morning I will register my oldest for kindergarten. In preparation I explained to him that kindergarten was for big kids who can take care of themselves for an entire day. Our kindergarten lasts from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and requires that he will need to bring a lunch and be in charge of his own backpack. This is a big deal for a 5 year old. Just as this sunk in he interrupted me with panic in his voice:

C: "What if I have to poop?"

M: "Well, then you'll use the restroom."

C: "But who will wipe my butt?"

We're still working on independence.

LMAO!!!!! Oh man, I didn't even think about that! Tori needs moral support every time she goes to the bathroom at home...but then she probably has to go every now and then at preschool so she should do ok. Her teacher had better not be calling me saying that we need to work on going potty all by herself!

Part of me doesn't want him to be so INDEPENDENT....can't he stay my little guy for just a bit longer?

That is so funny! The things he thinks off. For me, that butt wiping independance is the best!

Tell him there are times you still want someone to hold your had 30 years down the road. It is totally understandable!
