“The greatest gift you can give to your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence.” -anonymous
My baby started preschool.
I was ready, she was ready. That did not stop me from crying the first day when she disappeared up the stairs to her class. Where does the time go?
In typical Ava fashion first day of school pictures did not go as planned. I was however, able to capture her morning gift. A hand made felt heart I had sewn the night before. The girls will each receive a new heart every year on the first day of school to keep in their pockets. My loves who take a piece of my heart where ever they go. For my independent munchkin I thought this gesture would be more for me than her. I was so glad to be wrong. She held it so tight and said, “thank you mama for my heart. I love hearts.” She cherished it all morning and all day. It made my heart smile.
