Off to School

Today was Gabriella's first day of early preschool/Mom's Day out (Who are we fooling? This is what it's about!) . She will go twice a week from 9-1.

We went on Friday to meet the teachers and hang out for a while and she had a huge fit when it was time to go(just as I expected). I told her it was time to leave and she looked right at me and said "Bye Mommy!" while waving her hand at me. As if to say, ok, see ya, but I'm staying here.

So, needless to say, this morning when daddy and I left her, she didn't even notice. On the one hand, I'm happy about that as I would hate to feel guilty for leaving her. But, gee, would be nice to be missed a little!! I expect her to be mad at me when I show up to take her home this afternoon.

Here she is ready to leave for school.

Saying bye to daddy.

Stay tuned. It's a day of firsts and she is getting her first haircut later. That one may be a bit more drama. We'll see.

AWE how adorable is she?

So happy to see her on her first day of school!
Where do you people find these 2-day a week preschools...
Ours are stingy on this side and want the kids 5 days a week from 9-6 GOSH...I'm going to keep looking because even though I have kids here during the day, Madisyn would love do be away from me for a couple hours a couple days a week!!

Awww! She is beautiful! I am anxious about Bug's 1st day on Thursday! 1st haircut? WOW. Bugg has had at least 10 already! Enjoy that adventure!

I love those smiles and the outfit is to die for!

You are very lucky that she can leave your sight (or you leave hers). Savannah won't let me leave the room. It would be very dramatic. She is not ready. She is usually totally ready to leave somewhere when we go. You have to know your child.

Good luck with the first haircut. I think we are going to head there today or tomorrow too. Her bangs are getting quite long.

I am so sorry she is so sad about school :)
I think it is great that she loves it! I hope Ms V will be the same way when the time comes.
She is getting so big!

Aww, how fun! Lexi LOVES daycare. She is not in it now but she asks to go back all the time. Esquelita? she asks. I hope to get her going one or two days a week too.

Woohoo! You are going to be HOOKED. ;) We are going five days this year (after a year of 2 and then a year of 3) and I'm psyched! :)

Jarrah never looked back when we dropped her that first time. Still doesn't. But man, is she glad to see me at pick-up time! I never get that kind of lovin' any other time! :)
