First Day of School

Today was her very first day. It's so hard to believe that this little one has started school! This morning she woke at 6:30 am bright eyed and bushy tailed to start the day. She dressed herself quickly and made her way downstairs for breakfast. It was all excitement and no apprehension. She was ready! At drop off, we stashed her things in her cubby, she gave me hugs and kisses. She joined her class and that was it! "Bye bye, mama!" She said. "I see you when you come pick me up!" That was it. No drama, no tears. My baby so big. Where did the time go? Later that day when I came to pick her I snuck a peek In her class, she was happy doing her thing. When she saw me her eyes lit up and she ran to me. "Mommy, you come pick me up, you come pick me up!" She said. "Yes, mommy always comes to pick you up!" "I had a fun day and I only cry just a little bit mommy, just a little bit!" She pressed her thumb and pointer finger together to show me how little. 
You are such a big girl Millie, and mommy loves you so much! There is so much is out there for you, this is just the beginning! But do me one little favor, don't grow up TOO fast!
