Tap Tap. Hello? Is there anybody out there? Is this thing on?

Sorry blogreaders, all 3 of you! I haven't done a very good job of documenting my kids' lives. It's just that everything they do is so cute that I couldn't possibly write it all down. Anyway...I'll try to do a better job and what better way to jump back in than with a post about my little girl's first day of kindergarten. Where has the time gone?

Seems like just yesterday we were bringing home our first baby, sweet Madeline Rose.

It took both of us about 30 minutes to change her clothes the first time! We were so scared we were going to break her!

We've come a long way, baby! You are so smart and will do so well in school! You have quite the vocabulary, thanks to Fancy Nancy, and are curious about EVERYTHING!

We're about to close out our, I mean your, first week of kindergarten, and you already seem like an old pro. I've already gotten a nice note from your teacher saying what a joy you are to have in class, and you've already gotten to be "line leader," a most prestigious honor for a kindergartener!

I just wish you would slow this whole growing up thing down a little bit! I mean, sending your baby off to kindergarten is one thing (and yes, I did cry when she turned to go to her wee little table) but did I also mention the first loose tooth that occurred this week? Slow it down a little, ok?

We love you!
