We attended Back-to-School night, and what can I say? Wow. My little girl… my baby… she’s heading to school. I mean sure, it’s just Pre-K, but still. I remember when they plopped her on my belly and told me it was a girl. I remember all her little snuggles, giggles, and coos her first few days of life. And now she’s strutting her stuff with her backpack and little lunch box. She’s begging me to leave her at school so she can play with her new friends. She can’t wait. It’s the beginning of a whole new chapter of our lives. She’s like the bud of a flower, and each stage she goes through is like another layer of her petals opening up to all of the amazing possibilities that are out there waiting for her.
So, her first day is next week, but in the meantime, you can bet I’ll be clinging to my little girl every chance I get!
