My Second Grader


For anyone who knows my oldest child well, they will not be surprised when I report in that today was her first day of Second grade and I did not get a picture of her before school, because I was too busy holding her hair back while she was loosing all her breakfast into the toilet. She missed the bus and had to change her clothes, but I had prepared myself for these possibilities. She showed up in my bed around 3:00am already needing comfort, so I laid her down next to me and let her cuddle the rest of the night. I dropped her off at school armed with a couple Tums, a good, mild lunch and lots of love.

Poor thing...reminds me a little of Amelia. I'm glad to know that I'm not alone. I hate for my kids to be scared and nervous.

I'm totally bummed I didn't win the song lyrics...but I had some help from Dave. Watch out next time friends/competitors!

It breaks my heart when kids have a hard time leaving home and going anywhere! I hope it all turns out well! My niece got to choose a special "backpack buddy" (one of those tiny little furry animals) that helped her get on the bus everyday--it helped!
