First Day of Kindergarten

My baby started school on Tuesday. She woke up happy and excited to go. We put her first day of school dress on and took some pictures outside with her backpack. Adam decided to go to work a bit late so he could see her off too. We got to the school and G happily marched down the hall with her entire ridiculous family in tow :) We get outside the classroom and she refused to go in.



So I kind of pulled her into the room where Mrs. S was comforting a little boy who was sobbing. All those other little angel faces were just sitting on their carpet squares with wide 5 year old eyes. Then G lost it and was clinging to me and wouldn't let me leave. So Mrs. S had to kind of take her hand while holding the other little boy and told me to go. I walked out with tears in my eyes.

Not the best start.

I then went to my parents to get diapers for the twins who were spending the morning at Aunt Nicki's because my parents very old dog Molly was sick and was probably going to be put down that morning. I quietly said goodbye to her as tears rolled down my face.

I then got a text from Adam saying we never fed G breakfast. OMG. I suck. She is probably starving to death on her first day of school. I cried half way to work.

Mom fail.

But tomorrow is a new day. We will do better! And we did. According to her teacher she stopped crying pretty quickly. She got off the bus that day at my parents and was so excited to see her sisters! She had no tears the rest of the week. Happily went to her room and was excited to see what fun things they were going to do. She has a few kids from her preschool class that she knows and plays with at recess. Another cute little Grace B. that her coat hook is next to. Her cousin Alexis was able to walk her to her room without me on Thursday and today. They are so cute, holding hands with their same color ponytails swinging down the hall.

Huge sigh of relief.

Here is my beautiful girl the first day of school.


  1. I still can't believe your little G is in Kindergarten! Gosh time flies. Sounds wonderful that she has some familiar faces, and that just looked stunning on her! Setting trends already. :)

  2. YAY G!!!! It gets easier every day.... every week, month and year.... :-) She looks adorable and she is so happy.... we all get nervous on the first day of anything! Even at 36! :-)

  3. Oh my gosh, that prayer is a tear jerker! So glad Grace is doing well at school!
