DV is growing up!

DV is growing up! I know, they all do that- but sometimes it is really hard for me to be losing my "baby" and gaining a preschooler.
Yesterday we went to an open house at the school where DV will attend pre-K 4 next year. I can't believe it!
I am really quite sad about this, I love staying at home with DV and I don't think I'm quite ready for him to be a big independent boy.
He already is an independent boy. Just look at him hanging that ornament all on his own. He is potty trained, mostly dresses himself, and is working on his pre-reading skills. At least he still lets me carry him around, sometimes. I'm not giving that up until he says so.
Anyone have tips? How do you get over your babies growing up? What am I going to do next year when he's in school half the day? (Of course I'll still be working part time so I won't be bored, just sad.)

I don't know how to get over it either! I'm in no rush for my baby to grow up. The dad in that last bookclub book we read said something about how they outgrow us faster than we outgrow them. I find that to be so true.
