A great day!

This morning started off a bit rough.  Lexi woke up at 6 AM and did not go back to sleep.  While getting ready for school she was happy and excited, but as soon as we got out of the car she would not let go of me.  We waited inside for about 10 minutes for the school to open and Lexi would not let me put her down.  I knew this was going to be a hard goodbye.  When we got to Lexi's classroom she started crying.  The crying turned to screaming.  Her face turned bright red.  She looked me straight in the eyes, held my face, and cried, "I go bye bye with you" over and over again.  It broke my heart.  I have tears in my eyes now as I write this.  I cried while I peeled her off my neck and I cried all the way to Starbucks.  The pumpkin spice latte didn't really do the trick of cheering me up like I thought it would.  I spent the day running errands, cleaning the house and most importantly, keeping an eagle eye on my phone in case the school called and I of course spent tons of time watching the clock.  I counted down the minutes to get Lexi.  I got to the school a few minutes early and saw the director in the hallway.  She was with me again this morning too.   She said she checked on Lexi a couple of minutes after I left and she was teamed up with two little boys and they were making hand prints.  She assured me Lexi was happy and completely fine.  When I got to the class Lexi ran up to me and said, "I go home."  She had a huge smile on her face which brightened my heart.  Ms. Kim and Ms. Sherry both told me how great Lexi did today and how sweet she is!  They said she cried for the first 2 minutes this morning and then the tears were gone and they never returned.  I am so proud of my baby girl!
