How did this day come so fast? Lucie, my baby, had her first day of preschool last week. Since we visited the preschool right after we moved here, Lucie has been asking me over and over, "When do I get to go to my school?" Well, the time has come.
Overall, I'd say that Lucie is prepared for preschool. She spent the last year with my at my job providing childcare at a church in Solvang. However, Lucie was very specific in noting that this school is different from her old school:
"Mommy, this is not a not a baby school. My old school was a baby school because they had babies there. But, this school doesn't have babies. This is a preschool."
I might argue with that...my baby is going there. But while she is my baby, she is no longer a baby. I'm excited for her to explore, learn new things, and make new friends. I feel very confident that she will have a great experience at her school. Twice a week I will have the house to myself which I desperately need in order to do my part-time work. However, I really think part of me is going to miss having my sweet little munchkin around.
