Babies Grow Too Fast

My baby girl is no longer a baby. She is now a school aged child. How did that happen? When did that happen?

Well, it happened yesterday. Yesterday was her first day of pre-school. She was sooooooo excited. She could hardly contain herself. She went right in the classroom and sat on her name on the floor as instructed. They sang a number song, did a Clifford story, made a Clifford art project, played with toys, and played I spy. Even had a snack of juice and pretzels.

I took the day off so that I could be the one to take her and pick her up on her very first day. I was doing pretty good until we pulled out of our driveway and I saw the kindergarten kids get on the bus. I looked at the bus and it drove by and all I saw was all of these tiny little heads that barely reached the windows and tears started to well up in my eyes. If my girl wasn't in the car I probably would have been bawling. But I pulled it together as I didn't want her to see me crying before she went to school. When I got back there to pick her up she was actually a little sad it was over so quickly. But since she got to go back today it was all good from there.

Yesterday she wore her special school outfit we bought. On the shirt it said Princess in sparkly letters and another little girl in her class said she looked like a princess. It was really cute. She of course had to wear another dress today and has one picked out for tomorrow. We will see how long the dresses will last.

After I picked her up I took her to lunch. Just the two of us. It was so nice to just hang out with her. I really had a great day with my beautiful, smart, funny girl.

I love you Jaclyn, more than you know.
