Those were the words spoken by Grace as soon as her eyes opened on her first day of preschool. Grace has anticipated school like it was a free trip to the moon since she spied a little girl at my nephew's pre-k class with a princess backpack.
For the 3 weeks between the arrival of her backpack in the mail until the first day of school, Grace wore it around like a princess wears her tiara.
With all the excitement, Grace did admit to me in the car on the way to school that her tummy felt a little nervous. Apparently though, all that subsided because she located her backpack hook, and walked over to the table to work on a puzzle.
The only tears shed that morning were by me, the silly ole' mama. Whatever.
And, anyone who knows Grace is not surprised by the fact that she shared with her teacher, Ms. Cyndi, her plans for outfits for the next several weeks.
That's my Grace. A real school girl.
