As per tradition, this week I had my last summertime facetime session with Lil before she started…wait for it….first grade.
Raise your hand if your jaw is on the ground. How could she possibly be so grown up?
To give you a glimpse into her sassy, sweet self, here’s the play-by-play of our annual summer send-off, which was extra special since it was also her daddy’s birthday.
Want to see my brother?
My teeth are growing back in!
Can you see my nubs?
Me: Did your mom tell you to say that word to me?
Hahahahahahah. Hey guess what? I played golf with my daddy yesterday and took a picture of a squirrel. Do you see it?
Here, I’ll take a picture of you.
Me: Are you excited about 1st grade?
*shrug* Here, take a picture with my daddy.
My teacher’s name is Miss Connor.
Me: What’s different about 1st grade?
I don’t know. I have a desk–that’s different. And there are two new boys in my class.
I can speak Scotland.
Me: Really? Say hello in Scotland.
Me: Say something else in Scotland.
“Mom, I can’t do this, I’m too young.”
Me: ???? (A little Merida influence going on right now, we think.)
Want to see something, NoNo? This is my bow and arrow.
*shoots it across room* That’s how you do it.
*Linc rolls over — yay, Linc!*
Happy Birthday, Daddy!
Hey NoNo, I want to show you something else. These are my rocks.
I found this one in my OWN BACKYARD. It has tiny, tiny fossils. Can you see them?
Guess where they live? The (Hard) Rock Hotel!
Me: Are you excited about a new class?
I’m going to take music and library and PE and religion….and Spanish.
Me: Spanish? Say hi in Spanish.
Me: Count to five in Spanish.
Me: Wow, that was six. Okay…count to five in Scotland.
won, twuo, a-three, a-four, a-five
Look, I’m Princess Leia.
Funny face time!
Me: I hope you have a great first day tomorrow.
Me: I love you.
Love you, NoNo.
And just like that, she seems a million years older. *sigh* Where can a girl get some Scotland Rosetta Stone?! Love you to the ends of the earth and then some, Lil. Please stop growing up so quickly!
