Today I have a 1st grader. Aniston was so excited about starting the 1st grade. I was a little nervous. She told me last friday that she didn't want me to walk her to the class. (break my heart, already, child) But after the weekend she changed her mind. She wanted her dad to come with us and he was able to and it made it easier for me!! She was so sweet and so cute this morning while we were getting ready. She layed her clothes out on her bed last night, right next to her little backpack.
Am I really old enough to have a 1st grader, a child who goes to school all day? Am I okay with dropping her off first thing in the morning and then not seeing her until 3:00? What if she doesn't eat all of her lunch and she gets hungry? What if someone is mean to her? What if she gets lost on her way to the bathroom? What if her mother goes crazy with all the "what if's"??
I am sad to see her go, but also so excited to see what she learns everyday. I love that she loves school. I love that she wants to go. I just LOVE her!!
So I picked her up after school and totally quized her down. She had the biggest smile on her face when I got there. The 1st thing that she said was that she loved it!! (yeah, none of my fears happened) She said that she couldn't wait to go back. She told me about the lunch room, lunch, who she sat by, and that she got to put all of her stuff in her desk, and that her teacher was so nice. Wheew...we survived our 1st day of 1st grade =)
