First Day Of School!

Look at how cute my little princess is! Oh gosh she is so adorable in her school uniform. Audrey started part time pre-school this week. She is starting 2 days a week and then she’ll move up to 3 days. I am not the type of parent who feels comfortable sticking their toddler in pre-school AKA daycare full time. Our little ones are little for such a short time. We need to cherish the time and make it a priority to be with our little ones. Once they grow up that’s it! No second chances to hug them and squeeze their little legs. You’ll be missing their tiny hands and goofy toddler grins as they grow into young adults. Audrey is getting to a point in her development where she wants to spend time with kids her own age. Even though I have her involved in sports and activities, they were only an hour a week. That didn’t seem like enough time for her. Finding a bilingual pre-school for part time care was the perfect solution.

We knew that everything you learn in pre-school could be taught at home which is why we chose a bilingual school. A second language is the one thing that she wouldn’t get staying home since Tom and I only speak English. I really hope she picks up this second language quickly. Young minds are perfect for absorbing new languages. Who knows, maybe she’ll be able to teach us!

I did have the typical mommy excitement bringing her to her first day. The uniform was just so adorable. We took a bazillion pictures and I’ll probably take more tomorrow.  These mommy milestones are just so good. Bittersweet on all levels.

Forgive my ghost white face! Flash photography does not work well with setting powder.
