I was so proud of her this morning. She picked out her outfit (and 'cessories of course) and helped me pack her backpack.
But over breakfast she told me she was nervous and excited. And that little cleft chen wobbled two or three times when she was eating breakfast,those eyes filled with tears.
She checked and rechecked with me as to which hand was her kissing hand.
And she said she was worried she'd miss me.
And even though she was smiling she was wringing her hands. Look in the 1st and 3rd photos. See? Wringing.
This mama was (secretly) a little bit nervous.
The sweetest sound in the world is when your daughter gets back in the car saying she had the BEST FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL EVER. And that she made four new friends. And that she can't wait to go back. And that she wishes she could go back RIGHT NOW.
That's my girl.But man…that chin. Makes my heart hurt every time. It will always be that way, won't it? Yep.
And tomorrow I sent my biggest off to first grade.
Oh, my heart.
