Do you get the feeling she was happy? I hope so because she was. So. happy.
We counted down all of yesterday. Counting hours including and excluding sleep time. I’m not sure how many times I heard “Can I go to school NOW?” She told a few people she was excited and wasn’t scared at all. Such a different story than last year. She says she was excited because her room looked like so much fun and indeed it did have many little centers.
We bought an alarm clock last night at Target. She wanted to wake herself up and get ready before I woke up. And of course it was not a digital clock and I don’t think I set it right. I woke her up and the first thing she says is the alarm didn’t go off. So she says “Ring, ring. Time to get up for school.” She was up and at ‘em, complying with all requests to get ready.
At school, she was happy to see the principal and I heard no complaints or nervousness. She hopped out of the van with her bag and lunch. I didn’t even walk her in.
Hopefully her first day will go well. I’m sure it will. I just can’t quit smiling when I see that picture. So. happy.
