Pre-school

And just like that! Everything about her long and loping. Legs and arms, neck and hair. The way she uses her hands now to talk. Sometimes, she said, I like to just stand with my eyes closed, and I smiled, agreed.

giraffe knee socks -- she'll be the most popular girl in pre-school!

Okay, WHERE did you get those socks??? (and the gold shoes just pull the whole look together)

Time flies - just like that. It seemed like yesterday that I walked my son to kindergarden - he is now 28 yrs. old. Where did the time go? Enjoy these moments. :)

Aren't those socks the bee's knees, except they're the giraffe's knees? Just really rad knees all around? My mom bought them for Zoey at this store in SF on Hayes called Cotton Sheep.

Amazing. That girl has style.

She's a wonder.

if i could get away with giraffe socks and gold sandals i would be doing it in a heartbeat.

Scribe said...

Ditto to all the above comments. I wish I had family who would buy me giraffe socks. Even now.

Scribe, if I could knit anything but a straight line I would totally knit you a pair of giraffe socks. In fact, I would knit a herd of giraffe socks for anyone who wants them, and then I would buy a container of gold sandals and give them away complete with socks. Then, and only then, would the world be a safe place to live.

Sadly, while Cotton Sheep sells these giraffe socks for kids (plus monsters and other animals), it looked as if they only had sensible socks for adults.

I feel that I could do anything if I had giraffe socks.

Zoe is going to knock em dead.

Love her.

Zoe is going to be the 'rock star' of pre-school!

Did your heart just swell with tears and joy on this momentus day?

Petunia Face said...

The funny thing is this wasn't even her official first day. Just an orientation. Still, I got choked up a little. It'sgoingsofasttoofast!

Next Friday is her first day. And you know I am going to write about it:)

for some reason, that little post got me all choked up and goose-bumped. i guess it's called mama's heart-strings.

hooray Zoey! I just know she's going to love it. Hang in there mama...it's a wild ride.

Jules said...

The fact little girls get to have giraffe knee socks is ridiculously unfair.

The Lil Bee said...

She's such a big girl! And I am so jealous of her adorable socks:)

How cute are those socks! Love them! I think it's so cool kids come up with their own thoughts and feelings. I love to hear what they're thinking.

Kaylen said...

I want these for me, all me!!

Time really does go fast..my one and only baby is starting his junior year next week and it's a bit devastating in some ways, a bit wonderful in so many other ways.

Courtney said...

I want her socks!

I am very late on this, but those are the coolest socks ever.
