Well, this is the last day of Kindergarten, And the beginning of Summer. Like many things, it is bittersweet:
She lost two teeth.
She learned how to read.
We did homework four days a week.
There were two calls from the school nurse.
We racked up at least two tardies per week. Minimum. Punctuality is not my strongest trait.
We cut class to go to a local fair.
We cried because a friend kept tagging us when we didn’t want to play tag.
She had a boyfriend. Then she didn’t. But it was okay because we wouldn’t kiss him until she was 18 anyway.
We mastered curbside drop off!
She did not try a single, real school lunch…. but ate a bagel the first three months of school.
I got to volunteer at the Library and dip my toe in the PTO.
I met some more great moms and their great kids.
I’m ready for the beach. To have her back before I lose her again to school. But I am going to miss this.
