My Baby Girl

Today my baby started First Grade. I am still trying to figure out where the time has gone.

I had the first day jitters big time. Even down to the nightmares last night. I don't think I caught a wink of good sleep! Alex was fine though. Very exctied. Anxious to see some of her friends and her dear Mrs W (her classroom aide that moved up with her). She was also very excited to wear a fancy dress. Nothing short of a holiday dress was going to cut it for her today. So this was our best compromise. I'm glad I caved. She was so proud of how she looked. And giving her self confidence may just be the most important thing I could offer her. (And yes, she insisted on the oversized bow as well.)

Yay Alex! She looked BEAUTIFUL! We had a dress, ruffled socks and shoes (instead of her usual sneakers) over here in my house for the first day.

Glad Mrs. W is in her class again - she is a very comforting and reassuring presence in the classroom. Hoping today was the start of a wonderful year for Alex!
