You guys. Do you remember this?
It was Meredith’s first day of preschool back in 2006! We had no idea that she was nearly blind in one eye and couldn’t see out of the other. She had no idea that she had no idea about so many things! (She quickly got some ideas.)
Oh! And this!
It was Harper’s first day of preschool back in 2008! When I took her to school that day, she had never been away from me for more than two hours at a time! (She was still nursing six months before preschool began!) Sending her to school that day was terrifying for both of us. (Everyone told me she would be fine. For the first time EVER and the last time SINCE, everyone was right. EVERYONE was RIGHT!)
Look at this.
This photo captures the longest hug the girls have ever shared. I believe Harper had no idea she would be returning home from preschool that day.
Once again, today was the first day of school.
Harper is in the second grade, and ALL SECOND GRADERS GET TO WORK ON LAPTOPS!!! (She’s very excited about that.) Also, her teacher has fish! And he has the fairy books that she loves! And he plays music while they clean up!!!
Meredith is in the fourth grade, and her teacher has a book that was JUST recommended to her on Goodreads! And she made a new friend today who transferred over from a different elementary school in the district! And her hippo pencil holder barely holds any pencils so now it looks like she has pencils coming out of her butt! (Clarification: I’m talking about the hippo’s butt. I’m way beyond talking about Meredith’s butt at Fluid Pudding.)
Enjoy your afternoon. I’ll be sitting over here in the corner eating graham crackers with chocolate icing and singing Barbra Streisand tunes.
