As of today, my daughter has wrapped up her first week of Kindergarten. On her first day, her Daddy and I cried like she was going off to college, never to return. It seems like yesterday that she crawled into Porterfield Day School in purple pants with ruffles. Now she wears a uniform (that she hates), has a lopsided haircut and tells us to leave the classroom to spare her from embarrassment and shame.
Truly, I’m trying to keep up…but it’s becoming more and more evident that I’m going to be one of those moms who hide in bushes and spy on other kids so I can know what’s cool, what’s not and everything in between. I have no shame. I don’t care if Cali goes to school and hears, “Hey, Cali. We saw your Mom again last night, skulking around in the bushes with a submarine style periscope trying to read what we were texting.” I’m sure she’ll reply with, “I’m adopted.”
Anyway…here’s her first day of Kindy-garden….and a slide show of how far she’s come, baby.
