'Twas the night before kindergarten, and all through the house
the anticipation was building, in large amounts!
The backpack was hung by the back door with care,
The student was nestled all snug in her bed,
while visions of crayons danced in her head.
With Mama a bit nervous, but excited as well
Hopeful the first day will really go swell.
Haircuts, new shoes, all checked off the list.
First day outfit is picked out and pressed!
P.E. and music, computers and art
And Clare so excited for the big day to start!
All day I will wonder about my little sidekick,
How is she doing? Which friends will she pick?
My girl is quite ready, for a while I've known,
It's just hard to think how fast she has grown!
