Elle had her last day of kindergarten today.
She was SO sad!
Last night as I was tucking her into bed I reminded her that she needed to get her rest because tomorrow was her last day of kindergarten.
Well I should have NEVER said that!
She started crying.
Not just any cry....like hyperventilating cry!
She kept saying over and over how much she is going to miss her teacher.
Then she would say "my heart is hurting."
It broke my heart.
She then decided to hop out of bed.
I wasn't sure where she was going but she headed down the hall to find her daddy.
Then she asked him to give her a fathers blessing.
She is terrified to go to first grade in August, and she was so sad to leave her class and her teacher.
So of course her daddy gave her a sweet fathers blessing.
She cried for about another hour in her room. It was heart was truly broken.
This morning when I dropped her off at school she got emotional in the car. When she got out of the car she said "This is going to be a tough day"
I felt so bad for my little princess.
She has horrible anxiety about growing up, and I know finishing kindergarten didn't help her anxiety.
So does anyone have any suggestions how to help her get over this fear of becoming older.
I have tried to make growing older sound fun, and I tell her about all the fun things
she'll be able to do.....
She isn't buying it.
So any suggestions for my munchkin would be great!
