First Day For A First-Grader And A Princess.

First day school 1

First day of school. 

My first grader didn’t want me to walk him to his class.

But I did.

My pre-schooler didn’t want me to walk her to her class.

She also requested that I braid half of her hair on one side of her head while the other side of her hair rests on her shoulders.

Not today.

Perhaps, tomorrow, Miss Banana. 

I had every intention in doing some deep cleaning and organization yesterday after dropping the kids off at school.  I made the mistake of sitting down to rest for a moment.

A moment that turned into a few or a hundred.

They both had a great first day.  Anna told me, “I didn’t do any bad stuff or say any bad words.”  She had documentation to prove it.  She smiled and gave me a certificate that announced, “Here Ye!  Here Ye!  The Royal Courts Declare Anna Takle was a Princess in Preschool Today!”

And, that, my friends, equals a successful day.

    So sweet. As i droped off Jarod at school for the first time this year i remembered his very first day in first grade. He was so excited, dimples as deep as canyons. He smiled at me and walked in and sat down. As we said our good byes and he walked away to his dorm i said see ya later, he turned and dimples deep as canyons he walked inside and a new adventur begins.
    It doesn’t get an easier for momas. But the memories are priceless:)
