Ellerie starts preschool today, and I don't know how to feel about it.
Part of me wants to do the happy dance at the thought of 2 hours that are mine, all mine, each day of the week. Picture Daffy Duck with his duck arms laden with gold shouting obsessively "Mine! Mine! MINE! All Mine!!!!" Yep. That would be me.

No more will I find crayola marker pictures on my floor to ceiling mirrors.
No more will I ever find Ellerie in a sea full of bubbles just after she poured bubble soap down the heating vent.
No more afternoon hurricane Ellerie.
I think that I could get used to this.
And I better line up one great gift certificate for her teacher.
She is going to need it.
