Bright and early this morning we headed to the school to meet Layla's new teacher.
She is the sweetest lady :) I am so happy to have her teaching my Layla this year. Layla is very excited and nervous about heading to kindergarten tomorrow. As we walked down the hallway to Layla's classroom I was so excited for her. The school is so new and pretty and big. We met her teacher and I filled out paperwork and we found Layla's locker. Her classroom is so cute! As we were leaving the classroom I started to feel my throat tighten. Huh? Me nervous? YES!!!! The school was so big...there were so many people walking around in the halls. It hit me all the sudden. Why did the school have to be so big? What if they lost my baby girl? Couldn't we wait and start her next year? I grabbed her hand and squeezed it tight thinking I could hyperventilate. Why did she have to go to such a large school? Maybe I could home school her? And then I came to my senses. I know she is going to be fine, but I am nervous for her. She will do great...I loved school when I was little, and she will love it too.
Many people have asked me if I am going to cry on the first day of school. I laughed and thought they were crazy! But they are all right...I did cry. Not on the first day. But today when we got home...I cried. I was so sad and I read this silly little story/letter that was put Layla's folder. Thank goodness the kids were playing in Hayden's tent. I keep telling Layla not to be scared, I didn't want her to see me upset. I never thought I'd be so emotional. But I was, and hopefully I will be able to keep it together tomorrow. After we drop Layla off at school, I am going to a kindergarten breakfast. I'm excited about it. I will post lots of pics tomorrow of my girl's first day.
This little guy will meet his preschool teacher on next Monday. His first day of preschool is next Wednesday. I'm not sure how he will do, but I'm thinking he will love hanging out with the other kids in his preschool class.
