First Day of Kinder for Kloey 2017-2018

Dear Kloey,

Last week was your first day of Kindergarten in Ms Balco’s class. You counted down the days of summer until you could go to school. You asked me nearly every day how many days were left of summer and squealed with delight when the number was one less than the day before. Your sister would tell you about how amazing your teacher is going to be, how many great friends you will meet, and how much you would love Kinder. No, literally, this conversation happened every… single… day of summer!! But it made my heart explode with joy. You want to know why the dramatics of exploding hearts? Because, sweet Kloey, you dropped out of pre-k because it didn’t meet your standards. You didn’t like the way things were done, so you just, well, stopped going. Preschool drop out for the win!! I have to say, however, that they mandatory nap for 1.5 hours in silence, would have made me want to quit too. Well maybe not, a nap sounds nice in the middle of the afternoon to sort of break things up. We’ll revisit that later. Anyway, back to school, you handled your first week like a champ. You woke up early every morning with your eyes half shut and your hair stretched out in every direction (I say it looks like the sun, which is a pretty accurate description of what is going on with her hair every morning!) and you ask me if it’s a school day. When I say yes, you jump for joy while Kayden pulls the covers over her head with a pound groan. Ahhh sisters! You are well on your way sweet girl to do big things in this world. Having only met you for this week of school, it is clear you have paved your way right into Ms Balco’s heart. I hear she thinks you’re pretty awesome. And when she tells me this, instead of saying ‘thank you’ like a normal person, I simply say, I KNOW, RIGHT?!’ Because you are VERY awesome! Here are some of your favorite things that will look back and read and after my eyes clear and I can see the screen, I will look at and smile remembering just how awesome you were… and probably still are!!
