Sappy mom alert! Abort! Abort!


barely five

growing dreaming wondering

of her first day of


[*sigh of a melancholy mom] it's wondergirl's first day, tomorrow. wish us luck. Lord, knows i can use it. my thoughts are everywhere of her. it's hard to describe how i feel about not having her ALL to myself until next summer. i'm not too keen about sharing my girl. i just hope that the day is everything she deserves.

as i'm thinking of her as her day unfolds, this song will continue to play in my head. it pops into my head every time i see her play with her things at home. Enjoy! I'm being such a sappy mommy, I know. oh well, you can deal.

Now, I'm off to enjoy a glass of wine and a good night's sleep, hopefully. [fingers-crossed]


  1. don't apologize for you sappy blubbering! It was hard for me to say goodbye to my girl when she started school. :(

  2. hang in there mom...she will be fine...my youngest is enjoying himself...so far...smiles.

  3. Aren't moms supposed to be sappy??? :) I hope she has a MAGNIFICENT day!!!

  4. It's my baby girl's first day of kindergarten tomorrow too. And I'm also having a glass of wine before bed and dreading it. I've had a big knot in my stomach all weekend!

  5. hang in there honey...I will be there with you until we pick her up in the afternoon...I must say that not only because she is our "little" Lucia...but she has a beautiful mind...full of innocense and happy places...can't wait to see her in about 2 hours...

  6. Aw, sweet post! Though sorry you're feeling like she is leaving...just think of the wonders she can now share with you every day as she discovers new things....:) BTW, thanks for visiting Rockport in my blog! :)

  7. I think that's in the mother's handbook to be sappy on the first day of school. Hope you both survived the first day!
