Her turn

J has been waiting patiently for her turn to start school. I thought she would really miss A during the day...they are best of friends and really seem to enjoy playing together (I'm a seriously lucky mom I know!) I asked J today if she missed A while she was gone. Her reply..."Not soooo much. I get to play with all her toys!!"

But she has been a bit jealous that A has so many fun school stories to share at the end of the day. And I have been promising her that her day would come soon too.

And today it came. J got to meet her teachers, see her school, find her name on the wall where she will hang her brand-new-pink-sparkle Disney Princess backpack (cringe), and show off her baby brother to the entire school.

(Pardon the serious squinting. I didn't think the preschool would appreciate me moving the school sign so that she wasn't looking into the noon day sun!)

My little baby will be heading out on Tuesday for her first official day of preschool...two days a a class full of sweet little 3 year olds. I'll be lingering in the hallway with the other moms, wondering who told our babies it was ok to grow up. SIGH....
