Today was Little H’s first day of Morning Garden at the Upper Valley Waldorf School. All three of my kids started their school experience in that warm, nurturing environment, and if I had had my way, they would be there still! Since that isn’t the cards, however, I will be grateful for every day we spend there, teaching my kids to explore their world and use their imaginations.
I had Little H wear the very same dress and carry the very same lunchbox that Em used when she started Morning Garden two and a half years ago. Yup, I’m that mom.

Same dress, same backpack, same kitchen, two amber necklaces, one girl with enough hair for a hair clip, one who wouldn’t let me take out her Binkie no matter what.
Two big siblings squashing–I mean, loving–their brave little sister.
Bye, Little H! Enjoy this exciting new experience! I’ll be with you every step of the way.
