When my daughter was old enough to go to PS I had my reservations letting her go, but knew I chose a great place to give her new experiences and find new friendships. But the letting go was horribly sad for both of us. That was the one emotion of myself that I was not expecting at that time - I was ready for a little breathing room (or naps)! To get us both through that approaching first day, I realized I had to plan something fun, and give her something to look forward to!
It proved to be my smartest mommy moment to date! I made her a cake and said we were having a "First Day of School Party!" She left the house with excitement and as I left her I reminded her to be excited for her awesome first day party and her awesome Pre-School cake! We haven't gone as crazy since (the "party") but, we all still enjoy celebrating the first day of a new school year with some yummy cake! Thinking of the milestones brings tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat - so while I go grab some tissues check out some of our cakes, purchased or otherwise attempted to make....(the one craft I can't do is cake decorating!) lol!
It's never to late to start your own tradition! Celebrate your child's first day of school with a yummy cake too and let me know how it goes! Have a yummy day!
(I will add next weeks cake to this post after the photos are taken and the cake has been devoured!)
