Here it comes! The big day is fast approaching!!

I can't believe my baby girl will be meeting her Junior Kindergarten teacher tomorrow. She doesn't officially start until late next week due to staggered entry. Not sure how I'll react that day when I watch her walk into the school - WITHOUT ME!

The First Day
I gave you a little wink and smile
As you entered my room today.
For I know how hard it is to leave
And know your child must stay.
You've been with her for four years now
And have been a loving guide,
But now, alas, the time has come
To leave her at my side.
Just know that as you drive away
And tears down your cheeks may flow
I'll love her as I would my own
And help her learn and grow.
For as a parent, I too know
How quickly the years do pass
And that one day soon it will be my turn
To take my child to class.
So please put your mind at ease
And cry those tears no more
For I will love her and take her in
When you leave her at my door.

Unless it has the word Nantuckette it it, it is not a poem worth repeating

it's bittersweet isn't it....I'm so nervous about sending Mia for the first time for all day without me.
