first day of kindergarten

No party talk today. Just a picture of my sweet little boy’s first day of Kindergarten {sniff, sniff} and an introduction to my girlfriend Maura Bowen of the 36×37 blog. She’ll make you laugh out loud and candidly sometimes cry. She’s fabulous. Here’s an excerpt from her post “The Idiot Moves of a Kindergarten Mom” this morning:

It’s Tuesday, we’re on our way to H’s first day of kindergarten, and I’m about to make my biggest mom mistake yet. It will happen at exactly 12:05 PM, but at 11:55 AM, I’m still blissfully unaware. 

That’s why I’m smiling as I watch H through the rearview mirror. He sits stoically in his booster seat, slowly zipping and unzipping the front pocket of his flashing Buzz Lightyear backpack. “Shouldn’t we bring all my school suppwhys?” he asks. “What if I need my crayons or my cwipboard?” 

“You won’t need school supplies today, buddy,” I say lightly. “Mrs. M just wants to meet you and your classmates. She’ll also show you some pictures and ask you some questions, so just tell her what you’re thinking, ok? I’ll be right there with you. There’s nothing to worry about.”

I’ll be back on track tomorrow with a sneak peek of the new Harvest collection photo shoot!
