Her first day of Grade 1 has arrived. She chose her clothes, her hairstyle, right down to the exact height of the pigtails! She told me she was half excited, half nervous and half scared. I hadn't the heart to tell her three halves didn't make a whole! Well, the nerves sure didn't last long. The thrill of seeing her friends again took over and Phebe and I were lost in the dust! My favourite part of the day was her running into my arms (at the end of the day), shouting "Mama Mama!", for a 5 minute hug, with her arms and legs wrapped around me. She told me: "I had an AWESOME day!" Ahh, this Mama's heart is super happy. I couldn't possibly feel any more thankful than I do right now. Love that girl of mine.
