When my oldest child was born, he was breastfed exclusively.  Six months later, he was dining on carefully crafted homemade baby food. None of that mattered as he became a typical picky toddler asking for pizza, pop-tarts, and macaroni...
To combat those fears and jitters our little ones (and their mamas) may experience when attending preschool for the first time, I wanted to share some of the things he and I have discussed. 
This past year, even grandma got involved! My retired mother has extra time on her hands and ended up in my daughter’s class on a weekly basis. Having this extension of our family in the school and participating only strengthened our tie to the school. Now, grandma and grandpa have a better idea of what my kids are learning. This translates into more engaging conversation between them and a stronger bond.

Different schools, different cities, different states. It's all the same. And much of it boils down to some basic personality differences.
  It’s back to school time.  Yay!! After spending the summer driving my kids all over the place for their activities and listening to them bicker, I’m ready!!  While I am sad, because I really do enjoy having them around and the freedom...
