The Night Before Kindergarten

Your bag has been packed;
Your lunch has been made;
Your clothes, been laid out;
We've fervently prayed.

And now you're tucked in,
We've counted those sheep;
I peek just once more;
You're still, fast asleep.

I am not yet ready
For this bright new start;
But here's the thing, Banks,
you certainly are

You're ready for reading;
You're ready for fun;
You're ready for lunch,
Recess in the sun.

You're ready for math
And P.E., too;
You're ready for friends,
Both old and new.

You're up for the challenge;
You're ready to soar,
To reach your potential,
To learn so much more. 

You're ready, my Bankster,
But please know this, too:
You're taking a piece
Of my heart there with you.

I'll squeeze your hand gently
As we say goodbye;
Give a wave and a smile,
And then wipe my eyes.

I'll count down the minutes
To see your sweet face,
To hear your adventures
Within this new place. 

Tomorrow we start:
Kindergarten, here we come!
Be kind to my buddy,
Take care of my son.



The day has come, Banks. I could not be prouder of you, and I will miss you like crazy each and every moment. BUT. The world awaits. Let's do this thing! FMES or bust!!!

With All My Heart,
Momma
