My Daycare Baby Started Nursery School Today :'{

Is it just me?

Do other daycare providers get teary watching their little peanut march off to school?

Mind you, it’s just nursery school, but sheesh…how did she get this old?  It seems like just yesterday that Elena, at 3 months old, came to stay with me.


I love these little peanuts.

I am very excited for Elena – she is going to have such a great time!  The one advantage for me is that I get to enjoy some one on one time with her little sister.  I know we’ll both enjoy some quiet snuggle time!

I had to giggle this morning as we were working on Elena’s little person for school…Nicole needed one too.  So here they are…Elena and Nicole working on these two cute little paper people…with button eyes, crayon clothes, and twine hair.  I felt the twine hair was perfect as little Elena’s hair usually shows up at my door in the morning with a rat’s nest in the back…with Elena in tow, of course!  Remember The Winner of the Worst Bed Head Competition?

We had it all set up on our coffee table and there we were…all sitting on the couch with our projects.  Elena picked out blue buttons for her eyes and little red buttons for a smile.  Longer twine hair on Elena’s and short little pieces for Nicole’s (since her hair is just starting to really grow).  Both paper dolls came out pretty cute.  I wish I would have taken a picture for you…but alas, we were running like crazy people this morning.

Now Nicole is napping and Elena is just getting off from school and will be back soon.  I can’t wait to hear about her day!

{sniff, sniff}

Our baby is growing up Jen and Blake!  I know, I know…your baby.  But I still count you guys as extended family, and I’m pretty sure your girls think they have 3 older sisters…and trust me, Alex, Sam and Gabi love your girls!  And don’t get me started on Tim…little fingers…wrapped around…sound familiar?

Happy Back to School everyone!

ps…Gabi started 7th grade this year.  {sigh}  Same height as me.  {sigh}  Size 9.5 feet.  {sigh}  Our baby’s growing up too.  {sniff, sniff} 🙂

pps…thanks to Pinterest and Dr. Seuss for the photo.

  1. Just think the snivel you’ll be in when she graduates! But lets not rush it. Get her to kindergarten first. 🙂 Hope Nicole enjoyed all the extra attention and snuggles.

    • So true Barb! And yes, I think Nicole enjoyed the extra attention and snuggles as much as I did!
