her turn.

She has waited and waited and WAITED for her turn at school.

I have been ok with the wait.

It's so funny how your second seems so much younger than your first was at the very same age.
that was a really long sentence.

She just looked so teeny tiny in her big girl bed last night....I couldn't believe I was really sending her off to preschool! My baby!

She is probably one if the silliest girls you will ever meet.

Really.

But she is very attached to her mama (and I love every second) and can get a bit nervous in new situations.

So I was nervous.
Stomach-churning-and-giant-lump-in-throat-nervous.
All morning.

How would she do?

I'll tell you.

She took the teacher's hand, and marched right into the school.

No hesitation at all, just like big brother.

How are my kids so brave? Where do I learn to do that?

Who wants to go get brunch and/or cupcakes twice a week when they are both away??

Sometimes food is a good substitute for bravery....don't you think?

I was just about to comment on her smile, and then saw your comment--- I scrolled below to the polaroid and realized that is her darling signature smile! I love it! She's so dang cute. Good luck mama.

Oh my gosh, Sheena, she looks just like you (you know, if you were making silly faces, too). And Jonah looks just like Robby. You guys are like a perfect cartoon family. Too adorable to be real.

Mom said...

Love that sappy smile! Happy day to my big brave girl! (both of you)

Natalie said...

Oh my! That FACE! Priceless.

And yes, cupcakes are a perfectly valid substitute for bravery. Especially if they are lemon cupcakes.
