It was a precarious balance last night and this morning. She picked out her fanciest dress to wear. We had a nice long bath. ("No stinky babies at school!") She ate a good dinner and snack and even packed a lunch (although they weren't having 'sit-down' snack until Wednesday.)
She woke ready to go, all shades of excited and wound up! Everything was going great....until getting actually to the classroom. And there it was.....CHANGE. This was something new. It stopped her cold in her tracks, not sure of her next steps.
So what do you do with change? Well, at age four standing in the doorway of your new 4's class, you put your best dress forward, get a name tag on, and go in search of either (1) a kitchen or (2) babies. And when you find both, well, that's just the way life is meant to be! Then you come home in the evening and tell Papi everything wonderful about your new class! Seems like a great start to a new school year.
