I'm a stay at home mom to the two most adorable girls in the world and wife to my favorite computer geek. I am rapidly passing thirty and still waiting for some small amount of wisdom that is supposed to come with age. Maybe another 30 years will do it.
My Lolly Girl started First Grade this week. In order to be prepared she made a special pencil box because first graders get their very own desk. She picked out the perfect box and the paint, which of course included red glitter paint.
Her lunch was packed for the day and included a note from Mom, as usual.
The perfect outfit was selected along with the perfect hair style. And of course, the obligatory first day of school pictures.
Here she is at the end of the day with her adorable teacher. She's brand new and I think she's going to be a perfect first grade teacher for Lolly. They were even wearing the same colors, as Lolly pointed out to me after school.
And, just because she is SO adorable, here is a picture of Lolly on the second day of school.
A womans worth is not defined by the cleanliness of her kitchen!
"We have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove anything, to be what we are." Marjorie Pay Hinckley
So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life's a great balancing act. Dr. Suess
