Big Day Tomorrow

Her bookbag is packed….IMG_0478

her lunch is all ready to go….IMG_0479

her breakfast of choice is ready to be made…IMG_0476 and the table is set in anticipation of Mikayla starting Kindergarten tomorrow.IMG_0477 

We read this story together tonight.

Kissing Hand If you are the parent of a child that will be starting preschool or Kindergarten, you must read this book with them.  It helps them to understand that mommy will always “be” with them no matter what.  Have some tissues on hand though (especially if you are an easy crier like me)…we both shed a couple tears at the end of the book.   

Mikayla is definitely filled with nervous excitement this evening…in fact, so is her mother.  I am so excited for her, but I am also so sad that she is already old enough to be going out on this new adventure. 

I can’t wait to hear about her day after she jumps off of the bus tomorrow. :)

Our self confident, outgoing sweetheart is going to have a GREAT Day. It will be tougher on Mom than Mikayla! I remember anxiously waiting for the school day to end to welcome another little girl home :) Happy to see the "Red Plate" on the table! You're a wonderful Mom! Love, Mom

Can't wait to hear about Mikayla's "big" day! She'll be so excited to tell you all about it! Have her call Nana tonight and tell me all about it!
