I’ve on here ranting and raving all last week about the foolishness on reality television that I forgot to tell you guys that my daughter (lovingly referred to as “Lil Mama”) got accepted into Pre Kindergarten program! I was so excited! I love where she’s at now but nothing beats being able to send your child to school without paying! (Can I get an amen?) In addition, she got accepted into one of the “premiere” sites–right by our house! As soon as I realized she had been accepted, a million questions raced through my mind:
- Would she have to wear a uniform?
- Can she bring her lunch?
- What will her backpack (and of course matching lunchbox) look like?
- This means I am going to have to take her to the salon with me!?!?!
- What if the girls in her class?
- How will she do being in an elementary school?
As I considered all of these questions, I could feel myself getting ALL worked up. Literally–I almost broke out in hives. My husband managed to “talk me down” and I realized that everything will come together but I am going to have to put some things together. Hence my beloved Pinterest came into view. I get to start planning her “school years”.
Since she has to wear a uniform it limits our choices in fashion, BUT she can wear uber cute stockings, bows, and belts!
I’m obessed with Pottery Barn and I literally bullied my 12 year old to get a backpack from there! With Lil Mama we can pick some super cute combinations that have lots of pink and green! Who says you can’t be stylish while going to school!
((SIGH)) For so long I’ve waited to take her to a professional salon but that time is growing near that I have to. I have scheduled for her to get her ends clipped and to get her hair professionally twisted up! You have to stay cute..right?!
My daughter’s had to deal with some “mean girls” one time when I went out with a friend and her daughter and some friends. My daughter is sooo aggressive to her brothers but with girls –she becomes timid and whiny. I’ve been coaching her on when (and how) to deal with people who may be mean to her–for no reason. I’m just praying that she becomes more confident and that I don’t have to come to school to spank someone else’s child! Grrr…
In the end, I believe she’s ready for “big girl” school. The question is…am I ready?
