My baby went to school today. My little little baby....went....to....school. So weird.
She's ready for preschool though. I won't bombard you with all of her many accomplishments, just take my word for it, ok?
The morning started out.....hectic I guess would be the optimum word. Caliana is not used to waking up and going through a morning routine with the rest of us. She's used to sleeping in with Daddy and just going along at their own pace. We eventually got out the door, 20 minutes later than I had planned.
There is actually a lot of stuff to bring for the first day of preschool....
-lunchbox with lunch that can all be opened by a 3 year old, which means no gogurts or capri-suns.
-folder full of all the requisite paperwork
-2 pictures of her
-change of clothes, because with 3 year olds, you just never know
-a blanket and a sheet for naptime.....side note about that* When I was going through trying to find a sheet for her to bring I came upon this winnie the pooh one that Damien used for all 3 years at that school. Had to use it for Caliana, just had to.
Emily and Damien wanted to go with to drop her off. They both went to that school, and thought it was so cool and cute that Cali was going there. The teachers were excited to see them and hugged and gushed and exclaimed about how big they are. They ate it right up. They showed Cali around while I took care of the paperwork/money part, then it was time to go.
Cali got a little apprehensive at that point and asked me to stay, so I knew it was time to haul butt out of there. I'm sure she's having a great time and I can't wait to hear all about it!

New backpack (she's recently started watching Emily's old Strawberry shortcake DVD, so yay for liking characters where I can actually find merchandise!)
On her way in (this picture makes her look nervous, but she really wasn't)
Damien bringing her to the back (hard to believe he was ever that little)
Emily and Damien took some pictures of her playing
She doesn't love the camera
