Our Word for the Day: Kindergarten

I remember when I could hold her with one arm, how she’d fall asleep in the middle of a feeding. How her big blue eyes would look up into my face and she would light up and laugh with a giggle that only infants can make.

I can remember the first day she ate solids. The day she got her first tooth. The day she said “Momma!” The day she could go potty in the “big girl” potty and didn’t have to wear diapers. I remember the boo-boos, the hugs, the little groany sighing she does when she cuddles her face into my neck and gently rubs my cheek. I remember the day she turned 5. One day to add to the list is today. My little girl started Kindergarten.

Did I cry when I took her to “her brother’s school” today? I didn’t this morning. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t now. There are moments I just want her to be that cuddly little baby that needed me for everything - that depended on me for the most basic parts of living. There are moments when I am so proud to see her growing up to see how much of a beautiful spirit she has and how much she loves, well, everyone and everything most days. I’ll borrow her words when she’s talking about my cooking when I say “she’s a little bit of Heaven.”

They grow up so fast, don’t they? No matter what, she and her brother will always be my babies. Even when they go to their first dance, join the elementary fire patrol, [try to] borrow the car keys or go on their first date. Even when they get married and have kids of their own.

Happy first day at Kindergarten, Bug! Mommy’s so proud of her big girl!


Happy First Day at Kindergarten from Nick and I too. I am so glad we got to meet her and your son too. They are both so special and so much fun to be with. We had such a great time. I loved how she promised me not to sit in the sand with her wet outfit from watching the rollercoaster ride and she kept her promise. She was very careful as she walked around in the sand and playing and kept looking back smiling at us like see I am being good. heh heh It was so cute.

To think some folks don't believe in miracles. They happen every day, right in front of our eyes.

We went through that last year with our youngest. Does it make you feel any better to know that we get weekly calls from our 20 year old "needing us"? LOL

Aren't kids the best?
