Just a little over an hour ago, I waved good bye as you blew me one last kiss on your way to Ms. Rhoade's kindergarten class. It wasn't easy, but I tried to give you the biggest smile I could. I really want to write something super elegant that bring a small tear to your eye when you read it many years from now. Instead, every time I start to wax poetic, I get all teary-eyed. And, as you know by now, I'm not one of those "pretty criers" like you see in movies. It's a good thing that just Mary is home right now.
This morning, you showed so much enthusiasm for learning and experiencing new things. You even told me how you were going to greet your teacher, "Good morning Ms. Rhoades! I'm excited to learn something new today!" I hope you maintain your love of knowledge for the rest of your life. It will serve you well as you grow in both mind and spirit.
When I helped you put your uniform on this morning, I was really taken back by how grown-up you are looking these days. Maybe it's the fresh hair cut or the peter pan collar. Or maybe, it's your confidence that you can do anything if you try hard enough.
I sure do miss you, but know that this is part of growing up. You are only "mine" for a little while and that's okay. I can already see how God is molding you to be an amazing warrior princess for Him and that is enough for me.
Mom (since Momma is "baby-ish" according to you)
