Mimi’s first day of preschool was yesterday. This year, unlike the last two years, she was excited to go back to school. This will be her third year at the Montessori school so I think that has something to do with it and though I’ve tried my best to make these few weeks in between camp and school fun, I know I can’t compete with hanging out with kids her own age….she’s only 4 and I’m already second best. This year I decided to buy her little girl trendy clothes instead of little girl cutie clothes. She looks so grown up in her tissue t’s, skinny pants, slim fit cords, cardigans…I might slip in a velour jumper just to keep her from growing up too fast.
Even with her mary janes she looks all grown up.
This is how she really wants to pose in front of the camera. Jeff and I both know we are in major trouble when she’s a teenager. Jeff’s already talking about not being able to handle boys coming to the door or boyfriends. She’s only 4 so he has a few years to get himself together.
Mimi wanted me to take a picture of her funny pose. Moysee is Mimi’s best audience…but I guess that’s what little sisters are for.
And she wanted me to take a picture of her dancing with her new shoes. I love these shoes. I wish they came in my size and I could get away with wearing them.
Mimi had a great first day of school. She played in the playground, rode bikes in the bike yard, read a book about a kangaroo, ate trail mix, finished everything in her lunch box, took a nap, and that’s all she could remember.
I love you Mimi. Don’t grow up too fast. Love always, Mama xoxo
