To my first baby on the night before Kindergarten...

'Twas the night before Kindergarten and all through the house everyone was stirring and prepping and trying really really hard to hold back tears...

I know I have said it a billion times already but how did this day get here so fast?!? You are growing up so fast my sweet girl! I am not going to lie. I am so nervous and worried about you going to school. I am afraid someone will hurt your feelings or you will have a hard time understanding something and I know I won't be there to help you. But you will be fine my baby. You are strong and tough and smart.

I want you to love to learn. I want you to make new friends and be kind to everyone. I want you to be a good student and follow the rules. I want you to love your teachers. I want you to learn new things. I want you to grow and blossom and be all you can be. I've always said you will be the one to move mountains and I must let you begin this journey. 

So tonight we pack your big new backpack. We pack your lunchbox and fill your water bottle. We lay out your new dress and practice tying your new shoes one more time. We fill out the forms and stuff the envelopes. We read a book and say a very special prayer. Then you will sleep and I will probably cuddle you with big tears in my eyes because tomorrow begins a whole new world for us my baby. But we will make it just fine!
