LA RENTREE

That's how we call the "first day of school" in France and it was a big first for us since our "little" one ,Gallianne Lily, had never gone to school before. I will totally admit that I was the one who struggled the most with the whole "school idea", Lily on the other hand was thrilled to see her new teacher and make new friends.When I picked her up at 3:15 she still had a big smile on her face so I'm thinking : if Lily is happy Mommy is happy! ( and if I repeat that to myself over and over again I just might be able to convince myself ! )
et donc ca y est le jour fatidique est arrive : Lily est a l'ecole , sans aucune larme de sa part mais plus qu'un gros pincement au coeur pour sa maman. Et oui, que voulez vous, les premiers enfants on les mets et c'est un soulagement; la derniere on n'a beau s'y accrocher , on finit par nous "l'enlever" egalement!

I can't imagine how hard that is. We have two more years before my older one starts. I'm sure I'll cry!
