Today is the first day of school for my Kendall-bug. I am the mother of a second-grader...I can hardly believe that! We spent yesterday cleaning her room, setting out clothes for the week, and getting all of her school stuff organized. Of course, I told her she could have anything she wanted for breakfast on her first day, and do you know what she requested???? CEREAL!!! Umm, I don't think so! We don't do cereal on weekdays during the school year...we have a big hearty breakfast to fuel the brain. So, after thinking about it for a minute, she requested homemade waffles and fruit. I one-upped her and suggested a fruit smoothie with strawberry protein powder as well...and that sure got a smile out of her!
After I got up to get Noah ready to leave with Barry at 6:30, I had the kitchen to myself and decided not to waste any time. The waffles smelled sooooo good! In fact, I think Kendall smelled them and got up a little early! We sat and chatted a bit, fussed over her hair, and she wrote a nice note to her new teacher. Then, before I knew it, it was time to go! But not before Mom got a nice picture on the front porch...Wow...another year has come and gone. First grade flew by, and I'm sure second will too. I could really use another month with her home...there's so much for us to do together! And I really enjoy being with her. BUT, she misses her friends and the structure of school. She was so excited that last night at School Year's Eve, she didn't want to go home!
She is so much like I was, sometimes it's scary!
