First Day of School

As usual, I'm late on getting this post up. Better late then never, right?

Jayla's first day of Kindergarten was on August 20th. She was so excited to be going to the "big girl" school and meeting new friends! I on the other hand was a wreck. I wasn't ready for her to enter public school. I could go on and on about my fears of public school.

Surprisingly, I didn't cry not once that day but I think I got it all out the day of Orientation. I did get choked up when she told me she was a little nervous when she woke up.

Her teacher said she did great on her first day of school and seemed to adjust really well. My mom works with the school district and went to Jayla's school to check on her while she was at lunch. I had no idea that my mom was going to check on her but it really put my mind at ease because I was reassured that she was eating her lunch and was having fun. 

If you asked Jayla what she learned on her first day of school she will tell you that she learned how boys leave the toilet seat up and girls leave it down. Of all the things to retain in the day that is what stands out the most to her. She cracks me up.

To complete the first day of school I picked up a giant cookie cake for her! She loved it and I scored a few cool mom points.
While she was enjoying her cookie cake she informed that I put her shirt on backwards and she fixed it at lunch. I guess I lost those cool mom points that I just earned. In my defense, it was early in the morning and I'm use to her nice shirts having the buttons in the back.  I don't think it was too noticeable. If you look at the pictures you can how some don't have buttons and the last one does.


  1. How cute! I would probably be a balling mess and wouldn't be able to function that day. LOL But that's just me. Kuddos to you for keeping you cool and the cookie cake!

  2. You put her shirt on backwards? hahaha God I love you.

  3. She looks adorable, backwards shirt and all! I can hardly believe she's only in Kindergarten though, I think she just looks so much older.
