I cannot believe it, but Macey has entered the big leagues now, she’s in Kindergarten!
We did a special back to school dinner for her. I’d seen a ton of ideas on pinterest, but they were all a little fancy for my laziness. So, this is what I came up with:
Sack Lunches! Doesn’t get much easier than that.
Macey loved it! She couldn’t stop thanking me, “Mom, thanks for making my name rainbow! Thanks for getting caramel!” Thanks for letting me drink Root Beer!” So glad I kept it simple.
This morning Macey would go from super excited to super nervous. After she enjoyed her Krispy Kreme Doughnut, she said she didn’t feel well and didn’t think she should go to school. Luckily I had pulled out The Kissing Hand and we were up at the crack of dawn, so we sat down to read it. And just like I hoped, it did the trick and she was ready to go. I on the other hand broke down and had to go shed the first of many tears in the bathroom.
When we got to school she went right into her classroom and got right to work coloring the book on her desk. She was so excited to see that it was from “The Kissing Hand”, and that she already knew the story. I then had to peel myself away and go cry in my car. :)
To my surprise when we picked her up she couldn’t stop talking about all the things they did. And her teacher sent her home with the cutest game to play, where she had to tell me different things they did according to the color of M&M she picked.
Her favorite thing, Recess of course. She even made 2 new friends, whose names she actually remembered.
I am not happy to be starting this scheduled life where I don’t know what she’s doing 24/7! But, luckily she loved her first day, otherwise I don’t know if I’d be able to drop her off tomorrow.
