Today was Bella's first day of preschool! I hardly slept a wink last night and was a nervous wreck before dropping her off but I put on my happy face.
When we pulled into the parking lot, she popped out of her seat and exclaimed "I am so essited!" with her best excited expression. Then told me she was going to have a good day today!
We gathered up her backpack and nap mat, which she insisted on carrying, and began the walk to class. Cuz, she's a big girl, you know!
Bella started to get a little apprehensive with all the kids running around and the few who were crying. When she saw her best friend's mom, she immediately asked where Mitchell was and I knew she'd be okay once she saw him.
We went to her class where she met Miss Valorie and I started to see Bella panic but she kept her cool. Very brave. She went to Miss Valorie, let me kiss her tiny button nose and I forced myself to let go of the grip I had on the door frame so I could leave.
I am so proud of my little big girl! I'm also sad for me! But I know that she'll gobble up everything school has to offer and I'll get lots of stories when I pick her up.
Do you think they'd let me hang out there if I tell them I'm just exposing my unborn baby to their fabulous school early? No? *sigh*
