In the middle

Her first day of preschool was delayed by Hurricane Katrina, postponed from early August until mid September.

She was so excited to wear her little skort and her sparkly pink shoes, her Kim Possible back pack, and her tag with her bus number on it. And I made sure her hair was perfect and curly and adorned with a pink ribbon.

Someone later gave me a sticker that said, "Hug me: First Day of School Mom." And everyone understood what that meant.

Today she starts middle school. Can I have another sticker please?


 And yes, after playing cool all morning, like it was no big deal and I was just a big old pain in the butt, she did turn to me just as the bus drove up, hugged me, kissed me and said, "Bye mom."

    I came over from MomBloggers! I'm also an adoptive mom! I'll be in your shoes (sending her off to middle school) before I know it!
    Would love for you to stop by my blog!
