we have our first day of school outfits ready... jackson got a new backpack that HE picked out... and i swallowed my pride and let him get blue camo even though i wanted a solid red or blue... dear hubby was quick to remind me it was not MY backpack and he was right so blue camo he got... and the shoes... lord have mercy and help us all when jackson grows into his feet... those shoes are a 4 1/2... for those of you who don't buy children's shoes... let me just say in 2 1/2 sizes we will be in MENS department... and he is 6!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I will be thinking about all my precious friends who babies are going off to kindergarten this year... you will survived and they will too. Just know that THEY are ready and you have done your job as a parent b.c THEY are ready.... YOU are not ready but pat yourself on the back for a job well done...b.c your baby is ready for kindergarten! And just know there is a precious teacher waiting to love on your baby almost as much a you would!!! They will be in good hands... I promise!
And to all my teacher friends... I will say and extra prayer for you... may God grant you the strength to make it through the first day of school and the beginning of the year... as long as those babies go home (the right way... on the right bus) feeling loved and ate something whether it was their lunch at snack or their snack at lunch... you have done your job... and if they show up the next day for more... you are a hero! Good Luck!!!!
