Practicing My Deep Breathing

The other day Amelie was petrified of getting her 5yo shots.
Mr. Wonderful decided to teach her to "breathe deeply" whenever she thought about it to avoid getting to upset. It seemed to actually work too!
I've been thinking a lot lately about Amelie heading to school full time next year.
She'll be gone all day.
I will miss her!
(I'm soooo glad Daddy's classroom is RIGHT NEXT DOOR or I might not be able to make it, yes, I'm a spaz and I've fully embraced that fact =)
I started thinking about the fact that she'll need an entirely new wardrobe next year of UNIFORM STUFF!
Polos! Khakis! Skorts!?! Fun tights!
And I've got nothin'!
Mostly because I've been in denial about the whole thing!!
So now I'm in need of deep breathing exercises.
I know I have months to get ready--but my nature is to prepare ahead of time--it helps me feel a bit more secure and "in control."
And I just thought I'd share with you how I'm know, in case the next time you see me I'm deep breathing =)

Hang in there! They look so cute in their uniforms, that will help the transition :-)

Depending on the school's guidelines, Old Navy has adorable uniform pieces and Children's place has an entire line of hair accessories that are fantastic and cheap that coordinate with most dress codes....priorities!

I'm with you on this one - now that my daughter is over HER fear about going to kindergarten, Mine has kicked in! I've been her preschool teacher for the past 2 years, and the thought of NOT seeing her every day from 7:30-2:30 is KILLING ME!!!

I like Steve's sort of reminds me of my far away college girl, who was homesick, and not feeling well on the other end of the phone 600 miles away....and I vaguely remember a certain mom telling her to "breathe".
I love you - and am right there with ya - madre xoxoxo
