First Day of School

Today was Maggie’s very first day of school. We had been talking to her for quite a while now about how much fun she’s going to have and what to expect.  We went to the store last night so she could pick out a new school backpack and a new dress. (She’s got great style, I might add.) 

She is so excited to be a big kid and go to school like her friends, but I was worried that once we got there, she might not want me to leave.  So, after we find her classroom and meet her teachers, I ask her to give me a hug and a kiss goodbye.  Other kids were crying for their mamas as they tried to make their exits.  So, I expected that Maggie might get upset too. 

But all I heard was, “Bye, Mama!”  That’s it? I ask her to give me one more hug. She obliges and then another cheerful, “Bye, Mama!”

‘That was almost too easy,’ I think to myself as I walk out the door, trying to fight back my tears. I’m so proud of her and just a little sad that my baby isn’t a baby anymore.


She wanted to make sure that I got a shot of her new backpack, which carries such essentials as 2 rubber frogs and 1 pink lizard.

Ok, I teared up a little. I don’t know what I’ll do the first day of school. I’m dreading it now and Mac’s only 1!

Your not-such-a-baby girl is precious. I love the shoes!!!!!

Where’s Mimi’s little baby? She’s growing up way too fast but she’s still my little sunshine. I’m sooooo proud!
