Today was the very first "First Day of School" in our house. I still can't believe how fast the girls are growing. J1 started 4 y/o preschool and J2 started 3 y/o preschool. I know it's only 3 days a week. I know it's only 2 hours a day. I know all these things but yet still got a little teary as I was leaving the school after dropping them off. I can't believe how quickly my babies are growing up. J1 has already lost 2 teeth. We've had 2 visits from the tooth fairy and she's not even 5 yet!!!
I know that as a mom I am supposed to be thrilled that my girls are secure enough to leave me and go to school and not look back, but I have to admit that I was a little sad today that they didn't "need mommy" like some of the other kids did.
Both girls had wonderful days and raved about all that they did. J1 even sang the alphabet song PERFECTLY tonight for the first time ever (she used to swap J and K in the order). They love their teachers and are thrilled about their new school bags. I even had a little homework of my own in the way of paperwork and packing a change of clothes for them to keep at school.
So we had a very successful first day. I hope that everything goes just as smoothly tomorrow for the first day of dance class!!
