And all through the house, Rae was running rampant and yelling “Mommy” 5,000 times at the top of her lungs. The excitement of Meet and Greet hits her right after we leave the school. My plans for an early bedtime might now be wishful thinking. I love that she’s excited about school. I love that she is (now) ready to start a new year. I just hope her teachers are ready…that little stick of dynamite is coming full force!
Let’s list some positives about tomorrow: she has friends in her class, she likes the centers, she gets to pass her pre-k teachers every morning, and Mommy gets to pick her up when the day is done. 😊 (That last positive was for me.)
Now some possible negatives: the newness could wear off quick, her meds could make her extra clingy, early wake up is never fun, and no nap time…she specifically asked me if she’d get one. She doesn’t nap at home, but school is a different story. Maybe that means early bedtime every night. YAY! I’m just kidding. I treasure our few hours together before bed. But every now and then…well, all parents enjoy it sometimes. Don’t deny it!
I hope every child and parent has a smooth first day. School is a blessing to our children. Just think of how many countries push for kids to work instead of getting an education. I won’t even go into the kids that are made to fight in wars. Give your kids an extra squeeze and kiss. They’ll need it to get through the day, and then they’ll come home talking non-stop about all the fun they had. I know some started sooner, but the same goes for all of y’all too.
Happy 2017-18 School Year!!!
