Fast Forward


I knew that Caroline loved letters, and numbers, and books. I knew that she would love school but I wasn't prepared for this.

She loves her teacher, Mrs. Shelley. She loves learning about different subjects. She loves her classmates.

When she gets home I can tell what the lesson was about or what they did that day. When she told me I could be Leader #1, I assumed she was line leader for the day. Just today I found her reading a book to her toy puppies. She would "read" the page and then turn the book around for the puppies to see.

I took this picture on her first day of "school". She was so proud of her pink Dora backpack and her blue lunchbox. I have to admit I got a little teary-eyed. She is growing up so fast. She is so independent and so grown. I love her so much, but where did my baby go?

Caroline says...

{I am totally stealing this idea from Andrea and Shelly. Thanks ladies!}

Caroline was taking her shoes and socks off so she could put her princess dress up shoes on. Kevin suggested she could just leave her socks on. She says, "Daddy, princesses don't wear socks."
Indeed they don't.

We had apples with dinner one night and Caroline asked me to cut the crust off.

(During a quarter moon) "Mommy, I think the moon is broken. I think we need some glue to fix it."

I was trying to make Caroline laugh using her stuffed animal. She had a great belly laugh and then says, "Mommy, you knock me down!"

I was driving to the library when my phone died.
C: Mommy did your phone break?
M: Yeah honey
C: That's ok mommy. You can get a new phone. Do you want an iphone?
M: (laughing hysterically!)
C: I know. How 'bout we go home, have lunch and then we can go to the phone store.
Caroline, if you are buying I am there!
