So my mom guilt is getting the best of me right now. Colin's school is overcrowded and has way to many kids...yet they still keep building in our area...so anyway today we got our postcard with his teacher for the new year. Well everyone is posting on our school facebook page who their child has and not a single one of his friends is in his class. It's frustrating because he has no siblings at home, our neighborhood is older people with no kids, and no cousins even near his age. I work s.o hard to make sure on days off he has friends over to play and try hard to find people from his class to have over. Because of this there are some friends he has had over a few times this past year from his class. and not a single one is in his class or any from his Kindergarten class. I just feel bad for him and that mom guilt is creeping in thinking about how he has no living siblings, or we should live in a neighborhood where there are more kids...or....the list goes on.
I hate mom guilt
Awe! Bigs hugs! I hope he makes bunches of new friends and he can always keep in touch with the old friends.
It does make it a bit easier when there's at least one person you know in class. Well, this way he'll definitely get to make some new buddies and maybe one lives near your area. You never know:) I've had similar thoughts like we should move to a neighborhood with more kids (and better schools) as we also live sandwiched in between retirees. I hear you though and I just hope he likes his teacher and has a great school year:)
I too, hate the mom guilt! But when it happens I turn to my friends or Share, and am reassured that we all have it and it usually just means we care a lot and are doing our best. I felt that way too when I got the class list and Abbey's two best friends from 1st grade are not in her 2nd grade class, we don't live in a "walking neighborhood" nor does it have kids nearby for her to play with, and of course, no siblings at home. I get it. But, I am sure that Abbey and Colin will make new friends and we will have them over to play sooner than later.
