Sigh. Today was our daughter’s first day of kindergarten. When she was younger, parents of older children would advise us that she would grow up before we knew it. We would invariably reply (only half joking), “Oh, she’s never
going to grow up.” And now she’s in kindergarten.
And how do we celebrate? Do we go to her favorite restaurant? No. Do we make her favorite meal? Well, sort of. We make her a peanut butter and jelly sandwich while we enjoy a simple salad.
We are graced by a queen for tonight’s meal. Our daughter dons the queen’s crown that she made with her “kids” at school. It’s all very precious and we hope that it’s not all going by too quickly.
