I Don't Want to Be Five!

The other night I awoke at about 3am to Cole knocking on our door and crying - "Hello? Hello?" I think he was still asleep because our door was not locked and he didn't come in. Anyways, I ran over to him and asked him what was wrong. He said, crying, "I don't want to be five! Is there any way you can make me four again? I don't want to be five!" I assured him that he was still four and that he was only having a bad dream, and not to worry. He finally calmed down and then I had him come and sleep in our bed until it was time to really get up.

In the morning, Ryan asked him what he had been crying about and he said "I don't want to be five!" Ryan asked why and Cole answered, "Because then I have to go to kindergarten! I don't know what they do in kindergarten!"

Ryan assured him that he still had lots of time left to be four and that he would know what to do in kindergarten when he did turn five since he has been going to preschool and learning his letters, etc.

I would never have thought that Cole would have nightmares about going to kindergarten! Now that he's brought it up, I don't think I'm ready for him to go next year...I'm glad he has time to still be four too!

All Justin can talk about is when is his birthday and when is he turning 5! This kid can't wait and Kindergarden will be the best cause he will finally get to ride the bus! He's been wanting to do that since he was 3!

That's the first I've heard of any kid not wanting to be older than they really are.lol Can you even remember back to your biggest worry was going to school?! I wish!!! If only we were 5 again! I'm sure he will be ready by then. Tayler was very excited to be able to go to the big school. :)

Poor Cole! He's too young to be stressing - but kindergarten and being away from Mom is pretty stressful stuff when you get to stay home all day. At least you have awhile to work on it. Miss you!
