It's your mommy. She cant sleep. Her brain is on overdrrive with all the things she wants to tell you before sending you off to school for the first time.
Embrace the next 12 years because there will be times in your life you'd give anything to go back to preschool where your biggest problem is who the caboose will be.
Mommy's thinking of the million lessons you'll need to learn. She knows she will probably leave something out but promises you these are really good ones to start with.
You will be stared at. Smile back.
You will be pushed. Dust yourself off.
You will take longer than others. Always finish.
Your crayons will be stolen. Offer up your entire box.
You will be knocked out of line. Offer to hold hands.
You will be asked to count to five. Count to ten.
You will be called names. Understand they are insecure.
You will meet new friends. Choose them wisely.
You will fail a test. Learn from your mistake.
You will get your heart broken. Know it's their loss.
You will be the final one picked. They saved the best for last.
You will be doubted. Prove them wrong.
Baby, as I dress you tomorrow in your newly ironed back to school clothes and as I carefully comb the hair out of your eyes I will think of the lives you are going to change. You are made of determination, perseverance, and sprinkled with an over abundance of love. Never let anyone stand in your way. You are unstoppable. You are Maddox Lucille.
With all my love on your very first, first day of school!
