So the day is here, and she’s at school right now while I knock out some work and drink all the diet coke to try to stay awake (wouldn’t that be mortifying? falling asleep during H’s nap time and not wake up in time to get her?!)
I am not much of a pinterest mom, in fact I am mostly too busy and tired to pull off most cutesy, arty things (I gave up even reading DIY blogs so long ago, high fives to people who have time and patience to do that…) but I really wanted to do cute first-day-of-school pictures. I don’t have them from when I was a kid and I know this will be something fun to look back on every year as she starts another year of school, in 14 years I’m sure it’ll be hard to remember her first day of Pre-K…but at least we have some pictures!
I couldn’t get a clear picture because she was not interested in standing still.
Hopefully she’s always so excited about school.
I am proud to say that Sophia was a rockstar! I was worried last night when she fell apart at bed time crying about how she didn’t want to go to school and she wanted to stay home with HoWe and me. But this morning I woke her up with smiles and bribes (no shame) and didn’t even care when it was time for her to stay and us to go. She waved goodbye from the other side of the room and that was that. I have my phone by my side, prepared to drop everything to get her if she needs…but I am hoping that this is just the first step of many in her life where she’s ready for life as it comes her way.
