‘Twas the Night before Preschool

Another Year... Another F'd Up Lifetouch School Picture...

Another Year… Another F’d Up Lifetouch School Picture…

‘Twas the night before preschool and all through the house was a mother stirring her margarita on the rocks.
The backpack was checked and the outfit was set
While images of her newborn danced in her head.
Papa contemplating that it has already been three years…
Mama wondering if she’ll keep her heirloom earrings in her ears!
Will she be too tired, did she go to bed too late
What will the mother do if she doesn’t like the kid who wants a playdate!
“Oh Crayons, Oh Markers, Oh Tissues, Oh Sanitizer!”
“Oh Bounty, Oh Glue Sticks, Oh Watercolors, Oh Binder!”
Tomorrow’s the first day of the rest of your life!
Grow up, flourish and remember that if you try hard enough, you can definitely touch the sky.
With a wink of an eye from dad, the mother knew it was time, to finish her margarita and call it a night.
Congratulations to all and to all a good night!


  1. I'm so proud of you!!! I laugh at the hand sanitizer because when we grew up no one had that and now – every kid better have it!!! Ps – Can you write books. Love reading these!

  2. I cry every single year on the first day. My daughter is in FIFTH grade this year and will want to kill me but I cant help it!
