"Last morning..." is how my eldest, Elise, described anything in the past. Now, she's starting kindergarten and has no use for this phrase! I want to remember this, along with all of our stories, so I'm putting it here on Last Morning's Adventures. I hope you can either relate or get a laugh. :)

Ten Ways You Can Tell She's My Second

1. When I walked out the door for *her* first day of school, I used my phone (and not the SLR camera) to take a picture.
2. She ran right into Mother's Morning Out, hardly noticing that I left.
3. *Her* backpack was a Walmart special for $5.
4. When I accidentally deleted the pictures from my phone, I decided that the *second* day of school would work just as well.
5. I really didn't worry about her in her new class, with only one or two familiar faces.
6. Instead of having her backpack monogrammed, I wrote her name with a paint pen.
7. I remembered the second day pictures at the last minute and snapped one with my phone of her looking off to the side.
8. Her lunchbox came free with an item I was already buying.
9. I'm pretty sure she faked crying today when I left so that her teacher would hold her.
10. I really didn't care that much when I realized I accidentally deleted the pictures from her second day of school...


  1. Super cute and yes, totally relatable.

  2. HHHHHHHHHAAAAAAA!! I didn't see this, until your next post made me think I had missed something.
    (PS can anyone tell who was the first born in my family?)
