Our little trooper did very well on her first day of school.

She had a "Great Day" as her little report card states.

I left work a bit early. I pulled up in the parking lot and was delighted to see Ella and her new buddies out on the playground. I stole a few moments, watching her, shaking my head at how grown up she looked. When she saw me walking towards her, she paused in near disbelief (she did come back!) and then took off running in the opposite direction yelling, "No! Outside, Mama! Outside!"

We went for ice cream. Just the two of us. She was beside herself at her good fortune. Ice cream at 4 o'clock in the afternoon? Before dinner? As we made our way home, she took Panda away from her nose long enough to say, "I told you...I told you Mama come back".

  1. It's always difficult to walk away from your little one on their first time they start something new. You did just fine Mama! And Ella realized (once again) that Mama--and Daddy too--will always come back.
