Meet the Teacher…

Tonight, was my 15th Meet the Teacher, but it was

my FIRST to be the PARENT!!!






Mallory has been so excited for weeks!!




   I was already at work, so Wesley and Mallory just met me in the gym.  Mallory was all dressed and all smiles.  The only thing to do was her hair :).  So, I took her in my bathroom and started to braid her hair, but she was super chatty and wiggly.  I said, “Are you excited?”  Of course she said yes, but she also said, “My stomach kinda hurts; it does that when I am nervous.”

I was going to meet and greet some students before I took Mallory down to her room, but since she had butterflies, I thought we better go ahead and go.  I took a few pictures in the gym; then we were ready to go.  I handed Mallory her supplies and off we went…

Maybe, Daddy should carry them :)

On our way down to Kindergarten hall, she got to see the Principal, AP, Music, and Art teachers.  I was so proud of her, because she shook their hands or gave them hugs, and she responded to their questions.  All night, she was very sweet and polite.  Many new students will just hang on to their parent’s leg and not say a word.  But, Mallory was all smiles and confident.

Some pics of the room; it has a sports theme…


Mallory had to find her table and her cubby…

Mrs. Dormady has definitely answered many of my TWIN questions and has given me lots of good TWIN advice…

Mommy and Daddy are SOOOOOOOO PROUD of Mallory!!!  We are also super excited for her, because we know Wilson is an AWESOME school!!! 

And, we hear Wilson has a really good PE teacher :)


Mallory was all smiles, but Mommy was also grinning from ear to ear.  After leaving Mallory’s classroom, we had to cruise the halls, so we could say HI to other teachers…

IMG_3026First stop, Mrs. Cash!!  Mallory loves her, and she is one of mommy’s best buddies.  Mallory will be seeing lots of her since she is also a Kinder teacher and right across the hall :)

All the teachers were so super sweet to Mallory.  They said things like:

“I am so glad you are here.”

“I can’t believe it; I have known you since you were born.”

“You look beautiful.”

“So happy you are a Wilson Ranger!”

“Mallory, you are like a legend around here.”


It was an awesome night!  Just can’t believe my baby is starting school and that it will be “Bring Your Daughter to Work Day” everyday for me!

After Meet the Teacher, mommy and daddy took Mallory out to dinner to celebrate.  Thanks to Mimi for hanging out with Mia and Madison, so we could have this special time with Mallory!

Mallory is ready for Monday!!!
