I feel like I have been talking about this day forever and now it is finally here. And despite the long build up it came around far too soon. Not for Little E, she has been gagging to put on her uniform and get started all summer, but for me. My little girl is not so little anymore.
She ran into class barely throwing us a wave of goodbye. I am so proud of the super independent, kind person she has become but a little bit of me is sad for all that is in the past and, I'll admit it, envious that her teacher will be spending more time feeding that little personality than I will. I know this is all normal, the term 'bitter sweet' comes to mind but it doesn't make it any easier today. But I pushed away the tears as today was all about the smiles, skipping and smelling the flowers.
Good luck reaching for the stars Little E. You will be amazing, as always.
