Breathe Katie Breathe

That is my mantra. I don't think I can do this. My head and my heart are pounding. And I am literally struggling to breathe.
Over dramatic much?
School starts tomorrow.
I am not one of those mothers that just can't wait to get rid of their kids after 2 1/2 months of togetherness. Don't get me wrong, I love a break or a date night as much as the next gal but I just can not get excited about the fact that I will now only be seeing my children for few short hours a day.
They will be having fun, learning, growing, without me standing right there and witnessing it all.
Add to that the fact that this will be their first time in public school. Last year Lacie's classroom had 7 students in it, at her new school she has 20!
They will be spending their days with complete and total strangers.
Haven't I taught them not to talk to strangers?
Now I'm supposed to just walk them to the door, wave, and walk away?
I don't know how I'm gonna do this! Seriously. I'm a mess.
