I've started this post at least three times in the past week but because I have a newborn and a two year old, and get choked up every time I think about it too much I bail out for a bowl of cereal or some laundry.
Addiston starts the Mothers Day Out program at a local church today.
Jared and I went back and fourth about whether or not to put her in one. It's 4 1/2 hours two days a week. I thought we'd wait another year, but after thinking it through, discussing it more times than we can count and a lot of prayer here we are. I know she'll do great, she's got the learning thing down pat, but she could use a lesson in sharing (classic first child!) and being around kids her age. I'm excited to see where this new journey takes us and can't wait to hear what she has to say at the end of the day.
I know she'll be safe and well taken care of. I love the values her "teacher" has and the fact that she was wearing a bright pink blazer when I first met her. I am lucky to be able to spend alone time with Isabella-something 2nd children don't get enough of. But I'm still struggling with letting Addiston out of my sight. Last night I packed her first lunch, she helped pick out what she wanted to wear and I packed her a little book bag with a spare outfit and a few school essentials.
Three pairs of shoes-because that's what every little girl needs when she has spare room in a backpack!
And every girl needs a pedicure for a big occasion!
Pretty Pink toes
and we're all ready to go
Well at least for now. We'll see how everyone (mainly me) holds up in the morning. I'm still coming down from those crazy pregnancy hormones and Jared is fully prepared for me to cry twice as much as Addy does.
