Well, today was back to school for Lauren. She was super excited to head back to school to see her old friends and teachers. But wait… Her teacher from last year is on sabatical and we were unsure of her new teacher situation. Still, my very brave 5.5 year old told me “Mom. It’s FINE. I’m sure I’ll know SOMEONE” Great. The kid, she’s growing up. I poised her carefully in on the stairs like last years picture. She exclaimed “MOM. HURRY UP!” So, I did.
So I quickly got the kid to school to come home to Jillian having a meltdown that she wasn’t going to school today. Good news for us, Jillian had a meet the teacher day today at her new school. Have I mentioned my baby. is. taking. a bus? I’m a little freaked out by this fact. Stay tuned for Thursday’s meltdown/sob fest. I’ll be the loser mom following the school bus to school.
But look! Pictures!
From Top left to bottom right- Jillian getting familiar with some sand and one of the ECE’s. Jillian and her teacher. (Her teacher looks confused. I’m not sure what Jillian was saying) Jillian’s cubby (carefully cropping out the other kids around her) and Jillian with her teacher on the floor. She’s so excited for school. I just hope I’m ready on Thursday morning when the bus picks her up. Just remember me, covering Celine Dion’s “All By Myself” (I know she’s not the original artist. I just like that rendition. And it was quick to pop in my mind!) when my babies are gone!
