birthday shenanigans

On the eve of your birthday, I hugged you goodnight and whispered, "Happy birthday, Emma. I can't believe you'll be 4 tomorrow.  4, it was only 4 years ago that I held you in my arms, baby #3 a girl, my first baby girl, my precious little emma. 

We had an amazing day for you birthday.  With a few family and friends the day was soo much fun.  What did mommy and daddy have planned for there first little princess?  We had a fun party at home filled with lots of love.  You asked for a Queen Elsa cake and you got one!!!  you wanted a Frozen party so mommy and daddy made it happen.

We also couldn't let the day end without inviting your very favourite princess QUEEN ELSA.

Your face was priceless, I don't think you knew what to say or do.  You were in complete shock.  Queen Elsa came in she danced, singed and read a story for you and your little friends.  She also gave you guys a make over with fun make up.

story time with Queen Elsa 
of course because you are the birthday you get to sit on her lap during story time, you were so kind to share this amazing moment with little sister Mila, always a BIG SISTER.

A Letter to My Daughter’s Kindergarten Teacher

Dear Mrs. Aldorasi

I don’t know you and you don’t know me, but on the 8th of September 2015 you become one of the most important people in my life. You are the one. The one who I’ve entrusted to take care of my girl in my absence. The one who I’ve tasked with teaching her things that I cannot. The one who will make an indelible mark on her little soul that will forever shape her perspective of learning.

Just a few words about our little princess; Emma Veronica Edward was born 10 October 2011 in Ajax, Ontario, the daughter of Jennifer Rocha and Matthew Edward.
Emma comes from a loving family; she has 2 older brothers Joshua (19), Jace (13) and 1 younger sister Mila (2).

I cannot begin to tell you how excited Emma and I are that we get to begin her formal education experience with you. I have had two opportunities to observe you, one at the kindergarten orientation and one in the classroom, and I can see that you teach with such a great love for your students.  It’s going to be a great year.  I understand that you will have a classroom full of beautiful children just like mine but I need you to know that Emma is one of the most important people in my life.  Emma is a little shy at first, but as she gets to know you she will start to open up.  And before you know it she will be herself.  She is also very sensitive and can become easily overwhelmed by her feelings.  I can sit here and carry on but I want you to get to know her. 

Emma comes from a daycare background; she’s started Bayfair Daycare at the age of 10 months, so she is very familiar with a daily routine.  I have no doubt that she will transition into your daily routine without any confusions. 

These are the things we ask of you as I place my most precious gift in your hands:
Love Her
Encourage Her
Teach Kindness and Respect

You are investing in the future of my child, and for that I am forever grateful.
Love Emma’s Mom

You Only Get One "First Day of School"

It' September 8, 2015, back to school. But some of us aren't sending our kids back to school -- we're sending them off to school for the first time.  Little Miss Emma, my princess who is actually 3 years old and doesn’t even resemble a baby any more.  You started junior kindergarten today.

I / We as in you little miss Emma are so ready.

You only had one requested; mommy can I take the bus? I granted your wish but only because you had Jace with you this morning.

After we arrived at the school the first thing you said to me was "mommy the bus ride was so awesome"  The look on your face was priceless.

Little Miss Emma, you had a fantastic first day of school..  I am going to enjoy that you love going for as long as it is possible because I know one day you will tell me you don't wanna go.

My sweet little emma bear, school all day school.. look how time flies and how big you are getting.

Love Mommy

first bug bite

Little miss Emma, on Monday when I picked you up from daycare I noticed that you cheek was swollen.  When I asked the daycare staff what is was?  They came back with it was a mosquito bite and you may have me allergic to it.. Well, this is not the case because you have them before and no reaction happened. 

I am assuming it was a bug bite, not sure what kind but it’s definitely made a mark on your gorgeous face.  Daddy laced it with Benadryl each day for the redness and the swilling to go down.. It worked, but I couldn’t let it go without pics.

first haircut

Today I took you to get your first haircut.  You hair is growing very long but the ends are starting to split so it is time trim those ends.  You did very good, sat there like the little princess you are.  Even the hairdresser Ms. Pam was shocked that someone your age can still and not complain.  She doesn’t know that little miss emma is a true princess, a princess in the making.

first comes the washing of the hair, which you enjoyed very much

than the shampooing and the conditioner, I was looking at you and saying at home you always complain that I wash your hair.  Here you enjoyed it
