Thank You, Miss. D

Yesterday was the last day of preschool for the year.  The babe didn't seem to appreciate the magnitude of it all.  And I don't remember it feeling so dramatic last July.  Perhaps it is because we had to say good bye to one of her beloved teachers, Miss. D.

Miss. D has been such a loving and positive role model in the babe's life.  She has been a solid and sweet force of good vibrations and has made me feel like I made the right decision in sending my daughter to this particular school.  I have always felt I could be honest and straight forward with her I appreciate that she has always been the same way with me.

Through the ups and downs of the babe's last 2 preschool years, Miss. D has stood by her and encouraged us to find ways to help the babe through her bumpy periods (like when she was biting other kids). 

As I hugged Miss. D goodbye, I fought back a few tears, because I am really going to miss her smiling face.  I'm excited she has found a teaching position closer to her home, but I know there is going to be a gap that is hard to fill next year.  So thanks, Miss. D, for reminding me what a critical role teachers play in children's lives.  You will be missed.
