And off she goes...

The long awaited first day of Kindergarten has come and gone for my daughter. The whole process or registering, testing, school shopping, taking a bus ride with her and then watching her get on the bus alone and ride away....all felt so surreal.

I thought I could hold it together but I was sadly mistaken. I felt like the "Stalker Mom" instead of the "Soccer Mom" when I drove by the school (twice) just to catch a glimpse of her getting off the bus. How bad is that??

Here is my girl....

I am hoping as the days go by it will get easier....but I really don't think that will will likely get harder as she keep growing up before my eyes!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Man, that is such a hard thing! It's fun and exciting, but at the same time it just rips a teeny bit of your heart out... And no, so not "Stalker Mom". :o)

  2. I was taken back in time eleven years just now to when my little girl went to kindergarten. I did the exact same thing! I followed the bus to the school and watched her go in. Thanks for visiting. I'm following you back. :)
