First Day of "DAYCARE"...

Hello Friends,
Well we know its that time again, for kids to go Back To School/First Day of School, buses, slower traffic, school zones, PTA meetings, Open House... well you get the drill. Even though my little one is only 2, I still feel like I need to get things on track too. I have plenty of nieces, nephews and god-children that fit this bill enough for me and I am taking much note for when my little is ready. I've seen a lot of sites that have given me so much inspiration on how this back to school thing works for the children and their teachers. I think I better get started on my teacher treats now...lol. Anyhew I decided that I still wanted to participate in some of the back-to-school challenges out there so I put a little twist on my creation. I'm still not that ready to release the strings for my "sunshine" (Felice) to leave me just yet. I've been having the most Ahhh-Mazing Summer being home with her for the first time this entire Summer. Some days though, I don't know how you SAHM do it; and I only have one. She's is Full Throttle all the time and when it's time for her nap, I feel like I need one too...lol. Seriously, I sometimes feel like I'm going to catch a case...(with myself that is). This motherhood thing is still new for me and I'm not sure if I'm even close to ready to have another one. DH is going to have to wait this one out with me for while. OK, I'm rambling... let me get back to my project. Here is a Layout  **sn: (yes, I said Layout... it's been too long since I've done one of these)** I did for Felice (pronounced: Feh-leece, like Feliz Navidad) when she gets ready to start her
"First Day of... Daycare". I figure that's sort of like going to school; there's learning time, recess, nap time...etc. All the fun things that Mommy has been doing at home with her, but she'll get to experience this with other little ones her own age. I know I'll be ready when the time comes. I hope it was ok to put a twist on this for some of the challenges I'm entering this into.

  12. This LO is fabulous! I love the photo mat, and all the fun embellies you added. Love the zzzzz! Girl, I can relate to you about the little one in full throttle. And I got news for you, when my three year old goes for a nap, I am right behind her. Nothing wrong with it. I recently cut all sugar out of my little ones diet and that has seemed to help with her slowing down a bit.
