Alternatively Titled: Our Baby Went to Kindergarten.
I know she's ready, but that doesn't mean that my heart didn't break just a little bit when we turned and left her in her school room this morning.
She already loves school, and her teacher, and I survived my first day without my little partner in crime.
I've been so worried about her not eating lunch at school and going hungry, but we packed up her new lunch box with a few of her favorites, and even a brownie for dessert (because I knew at least she would eat that - ha!) -- and happy to report that she ate it all.
I did fine until we were walking out of the school, and had to walk down two of THEE LONGEST hallways... and caught an eye of one of our favorite teachers, and she asked how I was -- and then the tears started. It's not that I'm not going to miss Addi and Ali too, but it's always just Mama and Ainsi running errands, and hanging out all weekend at softball games, and I'm going to miss having her by my side all the time,
All ready to learn!
Ainsley and her teacher. Addi had the same one so I know she's in good hands.
I can tell you this right now -- I did NOT miss the parent pick up line. Uggggg.
First day of kindergarten is in the books.
