There's been a lot of excitement around here lately! Yes, Abby started school last Monday. She is officially a kindergartner. She jumped out of bed before 6am that first day raring to go. After counting down the days for the last two months, she was beyond ready to get to school that morning.
As for me? My stomach was full of butterflies and a gigantic lump crept into my throat as I held my baby girl's hand and introduced her to her new teacher. It's a humbling experience playing the part of the parent rather than the teacher on the first day of school and handing your first born child over to this person you met five minutes ago. Luckily, there's something comforting about brand new boxes of crayons, freshly sharpened pencils, and seeing that smile on your little girl's face while she's reassuring you, "Don't worry, Mom. I'll come back." And sure enough, she did! :) The first thing she said when she climbed into the car that afternoon, sporting the "School is Cool" headband she made, was that it was a "super exciting day!" When I asked her what she liked best, she immediately replied, "The cafeteria!"
When you are five years old, it can't get much more exciting than that!
