Whatever. Not true. You were just born. Like yesterday. Like five minutes ago.
Okay, maybe not.
Today you headed off to Kindergarten, ready to face the new — the new school, the new teachers, the new friends, the new playground, the new routines, the new of it all. To say that you were excited is an understatement. To say that you were miffed yesterday when your brother headed off to second grade while you had to stay home due to the Kindergarten staggered start is also an understatement. I love that you already love school.
I love you.
I know you’ve heard me talk about how I’m sad that you’re heading off for Kindergarten. I want you to know that my sadness has nothing to do about your readiness.
You got this.
Ain’t no thang.
You’re going to rock Kindergarten so hard. So hard! And I am so excited that I get to stand beside you as you do. Just give me an extra hug and maybe pass me a tissue.
Mommy (and Daddy)
