Tap, tap, tap

Is this thing on? I am a HORRIBLE blogger! I use to blog every stinking trivial moment in Sophie's life. Now we have these huge monumental occasions and I just let them slip on by without as much as a tiny blurb on the ole blog. Something monumental like oh, starting kindergarten! Seesh! I blame facebook. It's so easy to post a quick status, a few pictures and call it a day. Sad.

Anyway, the big day. It was big. Especially for me. I was distraught. A complete emotional mess. The day before I went to bed at 7 o'clock. I didn't want to talk to anyone. I didn't want to see anyone. I just wanted to be alone. I wanted to grieve. How crazy is that!? Since she was 9 weeks old I left her every single day at day care. This was different. This was big. This was getting her going to real school. No more chatting it up with day care teachers after work. Worrying about whether or not she's "getting it." Mean kids. Nice kids. The bus. The lunch room. Peanuts. On and on and on.

That morning I was 10 kinds of crazy. But we got up, got ready and headed out the door. And she did it. She walked into her room, sat in her seat and became a kindergartner. And we did it. We let our only one go. We held it together and walked out of the room.

Eating Breakfast before the big day!

Not a good sign to start out the day!

One last look back :(

We are two months in now. Things are going good. Two yellow cards. She's made new friends. Loves her teacher and hates homework. We've got a long way to go with this school thing so I'm so glad that it has started off on the right foot :)
