“You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!” Dr. Seuss

First Day of School

My dearest Kiki…Today you started the new chapter in your life – you started first grade. Today I hugged you fiercely, and somehow found the strength to let go and send you on your way. Each day you are growing older, kinder and wiser and each day I will step back a little more to allow you to be the girl you are destined to be. But remember, I am always your mama and always ready for a hug, a cuddle or to answer any of the thousands of questions you have at any given time. You are smart.  You are kind.  Generous.  Caring.  Compassionate.  Confident. Funny.  You are a better version of myself and your dad. I wish you could see what I see when I look at you.  I wish you could see how comfortable you are with who you are.

There is a whole world out there and you are just dipping your toes into it and I know that you are going to make it yours. I cannot wait to watch you take 1st grade by storm.

First Day of First Grade

I hope you always have the confidence to be brave, strong and kind.
