Now I'm certain...

I am 100% sure that I just birthed my daughter. It was yesterday or something! How in the world can she possibly be 4 already! I'm telling you it was just yesterday.

My husband tells me it's because time flies the older you get, but I'm certain that can't be what is going on.

We went to Jessica's school for "Meet the Teacher" today. First let me say Jessica had a great time, but I couldn't help noticing that she is a good 4 to 6 inches shorter than all the other kids in her class. It was enough that the other mothers assuming she was in the Preschool I class for the three year olds.

I know in my heart of hearts that Jessica is ready for school. She is so much more ready that I was at her age. Yet still it was a recurrent blow to the heart to repetitively field the comments. "No, she's in one of the VPK classes". What a way to review yourself.

It is tough to have the smallest or youngest child in a class because while kids are very accepting, they will probably mention the difference, not out of cruelty but just as a matter of interest. Jessica will handle it fine, but it will hurt you.

I think she's adorable, and wonderful, and that she'll do amazingly well no matter if she is smaller than the other kids in the class. As the Mom of two tinys... I know what I'm talking about! LOL
