Okay. Maybe it does - but just by a smidget. That's it.
I just got back from walking Kailani to her first day of 2nd grade. I still can't get over it! Second grade?!? I didn't cry but boy did I come close. Kailani on the other hand was fine. She did admit to being a little bit nervous (which made me even more anxious) but she was more excited than anything.
This morning I woke up at about 5:00 a.m. to make Kailani a cake. My girlfriend Betsy came up with a tradition of making a cake for her daughter every year on the 1st day of school. I loved the idea and have been doing it as well.
Need I remind you that I am not a pastry chef. Not even close! But as long as Kailani thinks I am I will continue to make boxed cakes and use store bought tubs of frosting! :)
Here is Kailani on her first day of kindergarten:
And her first day of 1st grade:
And then today, her first day of 2nd grade:
I had totally forgotten about making a cake until yesterday morning. I am so glad that I remembered. I would've been totally bummed had I completely forgetten!
So after posing for a picture with the cake we were off. We are fortunate to live close enough to the school so we can walk.
I'm already looking forward to the school day being over so I can go and pick her up! I can't wait to hear about her day! :)
Good luck to all you mommies and daddies out there that are sending your kiddos off to school for the first time (or the second....or third!)
ETA (edited to add): So as I'm finishing up this post I notice Momo is unusually quiet. You know that's not good. Here is why:Those would be Momo's fingerprints. Can you make out the frosting on her face?
