The Love Affair is Over

So Sadie says to me yesterday:
I don't want to go to school tomorrow. I'm going to refuse.
But she went this morning, no problem. She likes school, just doesn't feel like going. Remind you of anyone? Ha!

And, in other news, she has a loose tooth. Bottom right. When we figured that out yesterday I think I may have gotten a little too excited (I started dancing around and sang a tooth fairy song- yes, I think I was a little over-excited.) and she got nervous, even though she's been waiting impatiently for the day.
Then again, every friend of hers (who have all lost a tooth already), has freaked out when hit with the first loose/lost tooth. One even demanded his tooth back from the tooth fairy and put his tooth fairy booty under his pillow the next night to exchange it for his tooth.

So I guess it's normal, in an every-kid-is-insane sort of way.

Is This the Little Girl I Carried?

Oh, wait, I still carry her around. Anyway, she's in kindergarten!

She loved it, as we knew she would. Look at how excited she is.

With her friend Laila, right before we went in.

The official Oregon First Day of School Kissing of the Tree.

You knew I was kidding, right? We're not that weird out here. She's just really excited.
Excited enough to kiss a tree. We've all been there, no?

At first she was a little nervous. She coined a new word for it: Nervcited.

She didn't want to get into circle at first. Then, once she did, she blew us a kiss and grinned as we left. She can't wait to go back and didn't want to leave.
When I reminded her she gets to go every day she skipped to the car. I only hope she always likes school this much. Yeah, right. But one can hope, can't one?
