Is it wrong to be emotional about your child starting preschool?

My daughter will start preschool in January. We had an open house on Wednesday at the preschool at our church (across the street) and it was an emotional time. You instantly remember the moment your child was born, the first time they raised their head, the first step, first word, and the time they moved out of their crib. It is an emotional time that I don't think teachers, aids, or anyone who works with children understands. I never thought it would be this emotional.

My prayers are for God to give me the strength to let her enter kindergarten, junior high, and "gasp" high school! But I will let her learn to write her name first!
