Tomorrow is the Big Day.
Tomorrow morning, my baby girl goes off to school for the first time ever. She is so excited, I doubt she will sleep a wink tonight. She's been waiting for this day as long as I can remember. I, however, could fall apart in a sobbing mess any minute now.
She's my baby. She's only a tiny little thing, barely 37 pounds. How can she be a school kid? She's going to learn to read, navigate playground politics, count to 100, and eat lunch super fast so she doesn't miss recess time. There will be friends I've never heard of, pizza days, and assembly. She is going to learn to speak French, and I won't have a clue what she's saying.
I am excited for her, I really am. But I guess it's time to stop telling people I have a baby girl, and start talking about my daughter, the kindergartener.
