I am sitting here thinking of all that tomorrow and the days ahead will bring for you. You start kindergarten tomorrow! I am excited because you are beyond excited! You woke up the day after your 5th birthday and immediately asked, “how many more days until I start kindergarten, mommy?” That was exactly 103 days ago. I know you are ready to go and show them what you got and ready for this next adventure in your life. You will take it all in and not forget a minute of it.
I know you will be anxious with nervous anticipation tomorrow, but when I pick you up I am confident you will be full of smiles and bursting with stories and who your new friends are. I can’t wait to hear of all your new adventures from a perspective only YOU can share. I can only hope that you are this excited each year to start school.
I am a bit sad that my baby is off to school, but more excited for you (and a little for me, too) because this is what you want. I have marveled at how you have just taken your own initiative and have been reading to me this summer and have also started a love for math and numbers. I am sure tomorrow will be tough and the emotions will sneak up on me when I least expect it, but you will see a smile because that’s what we mommy’s do. Go knock their socks off, Miss P.
I love you my baby girl and hope tomorrow is just the beginning of a wonderful learning adventure!
