I cried making her pb+j sandwich the night before school started.
But on the morning of Peanut’s 1st day of Kindergarten, I held it together.
I made it through breakfast….
I even held it together while we waiting for the bus in the torrential downpour.
And then I cried the whole way to school. (I followed the bus. Duh.) Thankfully, Peanut was immediately at home in her classroom. And then, I wasn’t sad anymore.
We gave her a hug and said goodbye. Peanut didn’t even look up when we left.
We piled back into the car. Pumpkin was looking for her big sister. And from the back seat a small, sad voice asked, “Where Tee-Tee go?”
That would be the moment I totally lost it. (Can you blame me?)
Seven hours later……
I was at the bus stop a full 10 minutes early. Even Marigold was excited to see the bus round the corner.
Peanut had a great day though and came off the bus bounding with excitement.
We had an ice cream party to celebrate her 1st day. She told me about her teacher and her new friends. She told me about art class and the cafeteria.
And then I gave her a small “You’re A Big Girl Now” gift (a great recommendation from a friend):
I asked her if Kindergarten is thumbs up or thumbs down. Her response, “Kindergarten is INFINITY thumbs up!”
I think we are ready for tomorrow.
