Off She Goes…

dr-seuss-quotesShe did it! I did it! WE DID IT!

My little Sammy Baby is growing up and today marked a major milestone in both our lives…her first day of JK 🙂 . For as long as she has been able to talk she was all about going to scuola (that means school in Italian) and couldn’t wait to turn 4 so she could attend. Every time we would drive past the school she would say “look Mamma that’s my scuola” or “oh Mamma I can’t wait to be a big girl and go to scuola” and well today she was able to do just that and to see her so happy made me so happy. She had the biggest smile that went from ear to ear and although she could barely hold her backpack she wore it proudly and must have said “ok bye Mamma” at least 10 times to let me know that she had this covered and that she was a big girl and ready for it.

I will never forget this day for as long as I live and wonder if it will be the same for her. My baby girl is becoming a big girl and I can’t help but wonder what the future has in store for her <3 .

Samantha I love you so much and you make me so proud! Enjoy your first year of school and may it bring you joy, happiness, friendships, success and memories to last a lifetime! Remember you can do this, you can do anything you put your mind to and work hard at. I LOVE YOU!

P.S. In case you were wondering I can happily and proudly say that no tears were shed today by Mamma or Samantha just big smiles all around 😀 !
