Tatum started Kindergarten on Monday, July 27th. She picked: her outfit, which I ironed, shoes, hair do which her Nonnie drove all the way over to french braid, breakfast of eggs and bacon, necklace and bracelet and she was ready to conquer her first day! She's so darn cute! She was really excited and did great, no crying. Me either. She was excited that her new best friend, Tyler, wore the exact same outfit, they wear uniforms.
I thought it'd be fun for Tucker and I to eat lunch with her on her first day. When she walked into the lunch room she hesitated and I asked her if she'd like to sit with us or her class. She chose her class. I'm glad she's confident enough to eat with them, especially on her first day. Half way through she changed her mind and sat with us. I'm glad. I missed her.
At the end of the school day she was SO tired. She said she was tired of learning, tired of listening, and tired of holding still. I think she was also tired from the blistering temperature of 116. She had a great first day and was thrilled homework doesn't start until next week.
Today was a different story. She was hysterical for 45 minutes before Chris finally dragged her out the door. She tried 3 different outfits, put her knee highs on 2 different times, tried 2 pairs of shoes on-twice, didn't want her hair done and then freaked out when I wasn't doing it, didn't want a bow and was then mad she didn't have a bow...seriously. Nothing made her happy, no choice was good enough. I expected a melt down sometime this week. Hopefully tomorrow and every day after we can all say good bye with a kiss and a smile!
