So.... you may be wondering:
1- Did Mackaylan cry? Not a bit. She jumped out of the bed this morning ready to go!
2- Did you cry? I can't believe it, but yes! I told myself that I was not going to cry, especially since I am at the same school and will see her often. I guess I am a bit more like my mom than I think! Anyway, her teacher was so sweet and gave me a big hug and a word of reassurance. :)
3-How did Mickey react? He still can't believe that our little girl is in Kindergarten. He was the best dad and carried her bookbag, helped her find her seat, hang up her bookbag in her cubby, and label her supplies. Somebody had to have it together, because I certainly did not!
4- What were Mackaylan's top 3 memorable moments from the day? 1- Centers (She loved the Science and Housekeeping Centers best.) 2- Singing (The R-E-D Song!!!!) 3- PE (She had a mini-meltdown in PE because she didn't know how to hoola-hoop. What can I say? She has such a Type-A personality!! I'm afraid this will be something we struggle with for a while, people. Please know that we did talk about how the purpose of school is to learn and how if we knew everything we wouldn't need school. That seemed to help a little.... at least for the moment! haha)
Overall, Mackaylan's first day of school was a huge success! Here's to 12 more....
