Kindergarten Girl

"Some how or other, it came just the same." - Dr. Seuss

Where have the last five years gone? I still remember this baby, smiling, happy to be held, the biggest eyes you've ever seen.

Now we're in uncharted territory. With a past career in early childhood, I knew my ages and stages. With the onset of the school age years, I feel a bit adrift in the ocean.

But my girl? She's as confident as ever, eager to make new friends, learn new things. Make her mark on this world.

I hope her beautiful light will remain strong through these years, that others will be drawn to her sunny disposition and imaginative ways. And that, she will remain endearing, quirky and confident as ever that "girls are tough".

  1. OK, I almost cried when I read this. Anna looks SO cute here. Jo thought it was Clio.
    I really liked this entry on your blog.

  2. I did cry a bit - maybe the hormones?

    I was thinking about her all week, and wondering how her first week of kindergarten went. Enjoy this year with the half-days. All too soon, they'll both be in school full-time, I'm afraid.
