I just wrote a blog (http://thetwincoach.blogspot.com/2010/08/end-of-summer-panic-preschool.html) post with some ideas for surviving the preschool transition. I hope it's helpful to some of you. I figured I'd post it even though most of you are still in the process of finding schools; it doesn't hurt to have info ahead of time! Here's a little snippet:

----------
The start of the school year is right around the corner. At this time last year I was pretty nervous as our children were going to be starting preschool for the first time. In particular, I was really worried about how my very sensitive son who really loved his mommy was going to deal with the transition. I was also stressed out about how I was going to handle it! In theory, I loved the idea of having a few hours to myself while knowing that the kids were safe and happy; but the reality of it was that I was also sad that they were beginning to have a life without me, where there would be doing things and experiencing things that I had no part of. They were starting to be children and not babies anymore.

Nevertheless, they were starting school and we, as a family, were going to be prepared for it. You may be familiar with my need for being prepared by now...I approached preschool the same way I approach most things in life: I researched, I picked people's brains, I read books and then I attacked the problem.
