I begin nursing school tomorrow! And my kids begin preschool/daycare for the first time ever. I am a nervous wreck and beyond scared! I'll be driving an hour to and from school each day and doing day classes will be something new for me. I'm use to doing online and night classes. This means no study time during the week since I'll be picking my kids up from daycare as soon as I leave school. I usually do work/study while they nap and have quiet time.. But that has come to an end. This marks a new adventure for my family. A scary, stressful, exciting, and expensive one! I already feel like my heading is exploding with all of the info. Besides my 3 nursing classes, I'm also taking us history II and basic statistics online. They are 9 weeks long each and very fast paced. So the first 9 weeks of this semester will be very hectic and stressful for me. The good thing is, after those are done I can just focus solely on my nursing classes.
I'm so scared of how my little guy will act tomorrow. He is very shy and is use to being with either me and his dad. I keep thinking of all of the "what ifs" and it's driven me to tears a couple of times today. His 2nd birthday is also Thursday, and I won't be home with him to celebrate it. I know it's unlikely, but I would like to be able to keep up my "super mom" routine/way of life that I have going.
I keep telling myself this will all be okay and work out, we'll get into a routine and it will be our new norm, and that I WILL succeed in nursing school. Going to bed early and waking up early is going to be a new, hard challenge for us! *taking a deep breath now!*
Good luck everyone
