As many of you know, I am so not sure about my baby girl going on to kindergarten this fall! She is not even five yet, is a tiny little girl, and I had determined many years ago that she would do another year of preschool and then start kindergarten next year. However, over the past year it has been brought to my attention by everyone that knows her that despite my wishes to the contrary, she is ready for kindergarten. So she is going to big girl school next month, even though they may have to drag me kicking and screaming down the hall!
We registered for kindergarten in April, and Perry has been obsessed with getting her school shots since that day. Where most kids cry at the idea of getting shots, Perry has been literally crying to go get hers. So yesterday, we finally did it, and my girl didn't get the slightest bit nervous, despite an hour and a half in the waiting room and the best efforts of her brother to get her a little panicked. She chose to get them all in her legs, and she watched the first shot go into her leg without any emotion. The second one was the worst, and she did have a few tears roll down her cheeks, but was fine by the third shot, grabbing her sucker, and the paperwork, ready to take it to her new school.
After the big event, she chose a lunch at Backyard Burger and to go see Up 3-D at the theater. I guess maybe she's ready to be a big girl after all!
