every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end


Here I am again.  With so much that has happened.  While I doubt I have "readers" anymore...I am still documenting my life for me.  And for Layla.  And for those that do love me to look back on...

So here goes!

We've had a lot of good-bye's in the last few weeks.  Her first and only school from 3 months on....


That was a bitter sweet, SAD, good-bye.  I just knew I would cry through all of this.  But, I was stronger than I realized.  


Layla is just like her momma.  She puts up a strong front while saying good-bye to all her friends and teachers, but as soon as we got to a "safe place" - the tears began.  I was backing out of the parking lot, and she muttered, "I am probably really gonna miss this school."  And bring on the waterworks.  The snot.  She was a mess.  I felt so sad for her, but reassured her she would love her new school just as much!


But, I gave her a hug.  Told it was okay to miss them and we would come back and visit.  I handed her a tissue to wipe the tears and snot and told her to touch up her make-up.  lol!  And all was well in the world again.


Then it was off to meet the teacher....and even though Layla said, "I am scared!"  Why?  "Because I don't know how to study!"  #sheisariot


She loves her new teacher and handled her first day, first week of school like a champ!  Such a relief for this momma.  :)  


And even though she is making new friends, "but can't remember their names."  Apparently she is good at remembering who you are when you are not nice.  She told us on Wednesday, "Isaiah Buck called me a baby.  And I told him, 'I am NOT a baby!'"  #mygirl  

In other news....my warrior of a grandma is still hanging tough.  It's what we do.


Happy Labor Day to you all!

Layla may have the cutest crying face EVER. So glad you documented it. :) Also glad she handled the first week at her new school like a champ. And I'm still thinking of your grandmother! I know this is a hard time.

Why is she that pretty of a crier?!? She is seriously pretty when she cries. I'm gonna work on my cry face, lol. That is so sweet that she cried though. She is such a sweet girl.
You and your grandma are in my thoughts!
Have a good holiday weekend!
