"The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows."

Bug starts preschool in a week in a half (yes, that makes my lip quiver and my eyes well up with tears) Since this is my first go-around I have lots of questions. I'm confident that most of them will be answered during, meet the director night and meet the teacher day.(right? insert nervous smile)

Ok, so I'll admit. I've been laying in bed at night wondering, what to pack for lunch??? My sweet girl is very independent, but she still needs help opening a fruit snack. I am THRILLED to have found Wendolonia's Lunch Box Ideas post! Not only did she present LOTS of options, but she even has cute packing ideas AND she opens the packages for her little man and pours them into silicone cupcake wrappers. LOVE IT!!!

I found this info helpful too!
Another FABULOUS lunch packing blog!!!

We have already started, as "Bug" calls it, "practicing preschool" I try not to giggle when she holds up her hand and waits for me to say her name, before she asks a question. (she is so stinkin cute and she is still my baby...I may need therapy before this is all over) We are going to practice eating out of her new lunch box, starting Monday.
Speaking of Lunch precious lil bow wearing, dress up playing, princess, chose a Scooby Doo lunchbox. REALLY??? She passed over the princesses, Hello Kitty and even a cute monkey box, for Scooby Doo. (She and her daddy watch it together and she was THRILLED when she saw that lil van shaped box. Insert her car screeching sounds here....giggle. :)

Any advice for "Bug" or for ME as she takes this big step is appreciated. I still can't grasp the concept of dropping my BABY off and letting her go inside that big church building, ALL BY HERSELF!!! And, she's only going 2 days a week....kindergarten may just be the death of me. ;)

  1. Awww - such a big milestone for both of you.

    My "Baby" is starting preschool this year too. My Bug had a really rough transition into preschool but I'm hoping that it will go better for baby bear.
