Becca had her first day of kindergarten last Thursday. She picked out a skirt, sweater, tank top, and leggings, along with her new blue tie tennis shoes. We all went out to the lawn to wait for the bus. Then she promptly fell in the mud and her leggings were coated with dirt.
Jake shrugged it off. “Eh. So what. So she’ll be a little muddy on the first day…”
This did not fly with me. I raced upstairs and found some pink and gold leggings and did a quick covert changing of leggings on the street. She’ll thank me one day.
She was super excited to get on the bus, but of course Jake and I burst into tears on the lawn as soon as the bus pulled away and she gave us this little (oh wow is this for real) look…
