At This Rate She’ll Be Riding Her Tricycle to School By Friday

Quote of the day:

“Mommy, when are you going to leave?” (Miss C addressing me dismissingly during kindergarten drop off while I watched her play with a new friend.)

My fears of Miss C clinging to me, fearful and sad, thankfully did not come to fruition yesterday morning. She did have a few moments of shyness when we first walked into her classroom and she clung to the hubby’s leg, but she warmed up as soon as we walked around her classroom and scoped out the fabulous array of books, computers, baskets filled with fresh crayons and pencils, her new purple supply box in her very own cubby, and her locker. It also didn’t hurt that we lucked up and walked in with our neighbors and their daughter, a good friend of Miss C’s and a knowledgeable first grader, as well as a friend from daycare and her mom.

So far Miss C is adjusting to kindergarten without a blip. I didn’t need waterproof mascara or Kleenex for our “boo hoo” parents breakfast. Granted she was exhausted and only went a half day yesterday, but hey it’s tough work mingling on the playground, listening to stories, and eating animal crackers.

Look out world, here she comes!

I present to you girl power at its finest.

    She’s ready to take on the world, or at least the playground!

    She looks very cute in her pink and khaki and with that blonde hair she almost looks like a younger JBelle!

    I love first day of school pictures! She looks so cute and excited! I love shopping for school supplies too! Oh I miss those days… they went by too fast… (Hey, wait till they are teens- my stepdaughters now say “it’s MY life…” and the Spanish equivalent of “DUH”
