Eager Beaver

The Daughter wants to be a big girl so badly. She's chomping at the bit to go to school and wants to start yesterday. She does everything she can to keep up with the Boy. Usually, that's great. I love that she is so eager to learn, though I don't like the rush to grow up.

Today, we had a slight incident when I dropped the kids off at Day Care. The Boy elected to let the daycare driver take him to school in the van, as opposed to my dropping him off. I don't object to that; I can see the urge to go to school sans parents, and he has a safe alternative. However, the van driver elected to ask the Daughter if she wanted to go to school. The girl was excited beyond words at the chance to go to school. It was a crushing blow when she realized she wasn't going to be able to go with her brother - you could almost hear the little heart breaking. I felt so bad for her.

Now I'm sad.

At least she didn't tell you she wanted to be a priest and live on a boat with a million children with her mother.

Oh, my sweet little Dear. Sometimes things just seem so unfair. For me, I'm in no hurry to see her start school, but I remember her daddy being just as eager, so I guess it runs in the family.

Oh, the poor darling. It will come quick, although these things take forever in a childs mind :)
