Dear Diary, I put off writing this post. While most moms look forward to their children heading back to school, I want to roll back the hands of time. You see, my baby starts preschool on Tuesday. And if you tell that to her, she will quickly correct you and tell you that she isn’t a baby–she’s a big girl. It seems like just yesterday when I welcomed her into the world. Now that I’m a mom, I now understand all the adults who patted my head and pinched my cheeks, saying they couldn’t believe how fast I was growing up. Three weeks ago, she turned three. Unfortunately, I can’t freeze time. I wished for that power as a child when I watched I Dream of Genie episodes, but my nose wouldn’t wiggle. So, I guess I must face the inevitable–my baby is actually a toddler. And in a few days, she’s be a preschooler. I refuse to sit and sulk! Instead, I’m going to celebrate! I’m celebrating her sassy remarks, silly faces and big grin. So on Saturday, we’re heading to The Mall at Robinson for Macy’s and Radio Disney’s Back to School Bash. You’re invited to meet us there! We’ll make crafts that we can add to our refrigerator galleries. Our kids can get faces painted. And we’ll shake, rattle and roll to the beat of summer. And while there, I’m sure I’ll slide my Macy’s card a couple times and purchase clothes for my preschool prima donna. The party goes down at 1 p.m. in the Kids Department at Macy’s. If you don’t live in the Burgh, no worries! You can have a back to school blast across the country! Check out the details for the Pittsburgh event and others by clicking here. In the meantime, tell me how you’re transitioning. Maybe you’re returning to work, dropping your baby off at daycare or sending your little one to school. How are you celebrating their childhood?
