First Day of Preschool 2016-2017

Addison had her first day of school on Monday. We had a countdown on our fridge for the last month that we crossed off every day. She continued to get more excited as the days ticked by. She would tell me that she would go to school and Connor and I would stay home. She just couldn't wait.

Sunday night, we talked about what was going to happen the next day. I told her she was going to go to school. She told me she was going to listen to the teacher. It was seriously adorable. We talked about how she would listen, and share with other kids, and use her words. She told me she wanted to play with the kids. She just couldn't wait.

So when I woke her up Monday morning - earlier than she usually gets up - I told her it was time to get ready for school. She popped up and told me that her blanket was going to stay and she was going to go. She got ready quickly and couldn't wait to leave. (Of course about five minutes before we were set to leave, she told me she didn't want to go. But I think she was a bit nervous.)


She was definitely ready to go to school. And this time I was ready - although I miss my munchkin while she's at school (having a grand time).

When I picked her up, she was excited. She was already ready for the next day. She was also wound up and bouncing off the walls. But she had a lot to say about her day and what happened, and she was excited to tell me everything.

On a side note, I can't believe how much she has changed just from the first day last year.


She is getting so big and has changed so much just from last year. I love that girl and her crazy hair.

I can't believe that she's in school.

Comment below: What was your kid's first day like? Were they excited, nervous or bummed about school? And what about you moms out there? Ready for school again or missing your kids while they are at school?

xo, B
