Unhappy dealing with back to school anxiety

my ds is in kindergarten, and just returned to school on tuesday after being off for fall break.

every day this week he has been giving me a hard time, saying his belly hurts, he is tired, he will miss me, the day is too long. he cries every night and morning and it gets especially bad as we approach the classroom. this morning, the school counselor took him into class and he was kicking and screaming.

his dad is also out of state for 6 weeks for work...and I think this is adding to it all.

I try to comfort him and tell him that I am not far away, and I will be back at the end of the day. I tell him that his friends are excited to see him.

I don't know how to get him excited about going to school again, but this is really rough on both of us. Any tips? Is this normal after time off?

His body, his choice.
