I’m discovering that there are several big differences between starting kindergarten and starting first grade. The first one? The little brother who’s being left behind, actually realizes he’s being left behind.
The second? I’m getting this demure, posed smile now instead of the real deal. For a photographer, this is a crushing blow.
And even daddy has to work for the affection that his little girl used to give so freely.
For the moment she still doesn’t mind too much that when most moms are gone, hers is still hovering around taking pictures. It doesn’t bother her when we leave. She’s excited for her independence. We’re excited for her too.
There’s only one person who still doesn’t understand.
