First Day of School

first day of schoolToday was Natalie’s first day of school! She really loves it! She said she liked the playground, friends, and teacher.

I handled it really well. I only teared up when they gave me this little “Mommy bag” that had a poem on the front and little goodies in the bag. Phrases like – “Mommy, mommy can’t you see. I’m in preschool, look at me!…Mommy, mommy some tissues for you to dry your tears, a milestone of many of the coming years….Mommy, mommy remember me so, take my photo keychain wherever you go!”

So, we did all have a great day. It’ll be interesting to see how our year shapes out with this new phase of life.

    Hey Jill! Could you e-mail me everything about the mommy bag? I want to make something like that for my K-3 moms. I meet them on Friday and our first day is Monday the 27th. Thanks so much!! Lera (Rob’s sister)

    I wish they would have prepared something for the fathers. What do they think we are not interested?

  4. Natalie looks so cute…all ready to go! She looks like she could pose for a child photo shoot or ad for back-to-school styles! 🙂

  5. I remember my daughter’s first day. I couldn’t help but drive around and around the play yard watching her play and make new friends. Enjoy this time!

    (and thanks for visiting my blog – I was having problems and didn’t see your post until now)
