OMG! The day has arrived!
I signed my daughter up for preschool! It feels like she is going off to college HAHA
But on a serious note, I am so excited for her to start her little school but oh so sad at the same time. I feel like this marks the official end of her being a baby.
She has never attended any type of daycare. Lucky enough to have her grandparents and close family watch her when I was working.
I know it is going to be a big transition for her to leave me. But then again she could surprise me, run into school and never look back.
She was very excited visiting her classroom, checking out all of the new toys and brand new crayons. But she was also very happy to run out the door with mama and blow kisses goodbye.
The director of the school had me laughing. She said we spend more time consoling the parents than the children the first week of school. I thought to myself YUP that’s going to be me choking back the tears.
Every mom wants their kids to be comfortable and excited starting school. I have heard the heartbreak of their kid slamming the door in their face saying BYE MOM without a care in the world!
Anyways, I absolutely know that my daughter is ready to go. She is going to love it. Anything that is new or something she hasn’t learned yet will get her attention. There is only so much I can do at home with her. (Especially with another little one at my feet who wants to do everything that his big sister does!) Baby girl loves to be creative, imaginative and to be challenged.
I am not going to lie… I am going to miss her like crazy the second that she leaves. However I will get to spend some great quality time with my son. Something that I will also cherish. Those moments were far and few between having 2 under 2!
It is going to be great for all of us. Again I am not saying I will not cry like a big baby in the parking lot 😉
I can literally feel her excitement in this picture!!! I said “Come on! Let’s go see your new school!”
