My little kindergartner loves it when I drop her off at school.
We have this little routine where she gives me a hug in front of her class room, puts her backpack in the cubby, then blows me a kiss and waves goodbye.

As much as I enjoy this moment, I know the time will come when she won’t want her mom to walk her to her classroom, let alone hug her in front of her classmates.
My oldest who’s already a fifth grader, always gives me a hug in the car, and by the time my daughter and I get out of the car, he’s already gone.
So with my youngest, I want to prepare her for this upcoming change. But mostly I want to prepare myself, especially now that we are just months away from her officially becoming a first grader.
These past few days I started to drop her off at the school gate entrance, so that she would walk to her classroom by herself. Today I dropped her off at the schools parking lot. But stayed just long enough to make sure she got inside the school gates.
How do you perform the drop-off at school?
