Piper's 1st Day of Kindergarten

>> Friday, August 27, 2010

It was tough I won't lie. She cried Wednesday night - hard. In turn I cried after she went to bed - hard. I blame it on being tired and nervous, both of us. Thursday morning she woke right up as excited as she could be. We decided to have Matt bring her to help her carry all of the school supplies in. I chose not to go b/c it would not have been good for either of us. Her and I chatted during breakfast about how great her day would be and then I gave her another little pep talk before she got in the truck. I couldn't hold my tears back any longer as I saw her drive away. My baby is growing up.

Matt called me to tell me that she barely looked back. Piper knew her teacher beforehand b/c she did Piper's testing this summer. That totally made her feel comfortable.

While he was talking with her teacher she ran in the classroom and started playing. He had to go in to say goodbye to her b/c she wasn't paying attention to him anymore.

The girls and I picked her up today and the first thing she said when she was in the car was "Mama, it was FUN!" and the second thing was "Please don't freeze my Capri Sun again b/c it was still hard at lunch". I had heard to freeze them and then use them as an ice pack but I guess 4+ hours isn't enough to thaw - lesson learned. She continued to chat about all the fun that she had on our ride home. I did get a recorded call & email telling me that her school was on lockdown for 16 minutes due to a domestic disturbance. That made me sort of ill b/c I had no idea and it was 4 hours later when I was being notified. Sure it wasn't a really big deal but it was to me.Tuesday is her first day with the whole class and she will start riding the bus as well. Today wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be but that could be b/c I still had Violet and Ruby to play with. In a few weeks Violet will go off to preschool for the first time. What a quiet house I will have. Maybe it will get cleaned lol :)

Good luck to all the other first time mamas and kiddos this year and I hope that all the pros that have been in school before have a great year!

She will be great! Lyndsy starts on Monday and she is getting excited. I'm getting mixed emotions. Congrats on a great first day!

Lockdown???? Oh my!

I'm so glad she loved it! I know Julia will love it, but I can't help feeling so anxious. I'm just looking forward to the first day being OVER!

They grow up too fast!

The first day is always the hardest on both the child and the parent/s. Glad that she enjoyed her second day... She'll be fine! :)

Z starts kindergarten next Wed and that's when I will feel the quiet --when both J and Z are off in school. Kinda excited yet sad about it. :)

I so wanted to do what you did and have Shane take Bryce the first day. I'm glad that Piper did well after her initial worry. And let me tell you, my house is much, much cleaner now. I find myself still trying to figure out a new schedule (two weeks in) and so things are getting cleaned while Raya runs circles around me. :)

That made me sad and happy and I even laughed at the Capri Sun comment! (I've heard that before too!)

I'm so glad the first day went well, but oh boy, can I relate to how you felt.
