And it was fine. The worst that happened was that the sign we made said "2013" instead of "2014"
|she wanted to add the part about what she likes|
|And a picture of the backpack. She was very proud of the backpack.|
The same picture with the same friend from last year they are all smiles. Not so much this year.
Drop off was tough. Normally Matt will drive her to school but I did it the first day. For both our sakes. But everything went as it should have - both Matt and I cried. She did not.
Amusing them is going to be a whole different ballgame. In the morning we painted, made cupcakes, went to the pet store, frosted cupcakes, read about the frog he's going to get when the fishtank filter is working again, and ate lunch. As I was putting the dude down for a nap he says to me "I think I'm going start preschool tomorrow because you are boring." GAH.
Pick-up was more nerve wrecking than drop off. I couldn't wait to see her! To hear all about it! And then she got into the car and was silent. For about 5 full minutes I couldn't get her to say anything at all. And then all of a sudden she busted out with "MOMMY I JUST CAN'T STAND IT I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!!"
She was also SO excited to see her siblings:
When I took Tiny out of the car she ran over to me and was all "I just can't wait to hug him!"
I tried to get a revised First Day picture with a 2014 sign but.... yeah:
The cupcakes were a hit, too:
Also great? UNIFORMS. For seriously.
