Once upon a time, there was a teeny tiny baby. He was the loveliest little soul with curious eyes and puppy dog hands. His grandfather compared him to a sparrow.
Through the years, he got bigger and learned to sing songs and have opinions and stand up without even holding onto the coffee table! He became a little entertainer who made his family laugh. He started preschool and took a fancy picture. One night his parents went to the hospital and brought home a brother to play with.
Then, one fall, it was time to go to kindergarten. He was “a little nervous and a little excited,” which his friend told him was called “ner-cited.” The night before, his family lit candles on a chocolate cake and made up a first-day-of-school song to the tune of Happy Birthday.
And with that, he headed off to The Big School. His mama felt nervous all morning until he came home at noon, in a bit of a daze but happy enough, and she could once again breathe normally, because, as only she knows, he still is (and always will be) that little sparrow newborn at heart.
Hope all the little ones out there have a good first day of school, whenever it is! And that their parents are hanging in :) Lots of love xoxoxo
