C is a 1st Grader!!!

Monday, August 27, 2012
Each year I am amazed at how fast the time goes by.  How could the Cutie Patootie be in 1st grade already!?  She had an awesome (and early) morning.  

I am so excited for what this year will hold for her.  C's teacher is amazing... We met her a few nights ago and to ease her students' 1st day jitters she gave them each a tiny bag filled with "magic" confetti to sprinkle under their pillows the night before the first day of school. Attached to the bag was this adorable poem:

The night before school is exciting and fun.
There are always so many things to be done.
Your clothes are ready, your backpack is too.
Your classroom is full of fun things you can do.
Lots of questions go through your mind,
All types of thoughts of every kind.
But sometimes we all get the jitters down deep
And that makes it hard to fall fast asleep.
So I've made this magic confetti for you,
Full of promises for the whole year through.
On Sunday night when you lay down your head,
Just sprinkle some under your pillow in bed.
The confetti will help you sleep through the night,
And wake up in the morning fresh and bright.
I'll sprinkle the confetti under my pillow too
Because I am so super excited to see you!
Sweet Dreams First Grader!

This MADE Caroline's 1st day of school eve.  Her eyes twinkled as I read it to her and she slept like a baby.

As some of you may already know, we are complete Gymboree nuts in our home. 
C's back to school outfit was, of course, from there.
However, I did find her amazing cherry hair bow on Etsy from a fabulous shop
The owner Kathy is wonderful.
If you love Gymboree like we do check out her shop !!!
 She specializes in hair bows that coordinate with almost every Gymboree line that is out there.  Shipping is super fast and her prices are great.

I can't wait to hear how the Cutie Patootie's day went!

With whimsy~
