Today marked another milestone in your life, your first day of Pre-K.
Today you moved up into the ‘big kid’ class at daycare. You put on your new school uniform and off we went.
We put your new ‘big kid’ backpack…your first reaction: “Mommy, what’s that smell? It stinks!” Then I explained to you about that ‘new backpack smell’. I don’t think you believed me.
When we arrived at the daycare, it was packed. Many parents were lingering as they dropped off their new Pre-K’ers. We arrived just in time for a group photo. As I looked at the group of kids, some of which you’d been with since you were an infant, I couldn’t believe how you all had grown.
Some kids were sitting around looking shell-shocked, others had tears running down their cheeks, and then there you were my bright, shining star, my Emily; sitting there with a big grin on your face, bouncing on your knees with excitement.
I hope you have a great first day of Pre-K.
