'Twas the Night Before Kindergarten, Welcome to the Class of 2023

'Twas the night before Kindergarten,
And as they prepared,
the triplets were SO excited
And a not a wee bit scared.

They tossed and they turned
About in their beds
As visions of school supplies
Danced in their heads.

Lunches and Sanitzers
And kippahs galore
Were stuffed near the backpacks
And set by the front door.

Their outfits were hung
On the furniture with care,
Knowing that Kindergarten
Soon would be there!

In the morning it came -
School starts today!
Would the teachers be nice?
Would they still let us play?

All three faces were washed,
All teeth were brushed white,
They posed for the picture,
Six eyes sparkling bright!

They grab the backpacks
And hop into the van
They dash off to the school,
Oy Vey, Mommie's driving as fast as she can!

The teacher then greeted
Each one with a smile,
And invited the students
To come and sit for awhile.

They let go of Mommie's hand
And then walked down the hall

They heard Mommie promise
That she would not start to bawl!

They all kissed their Mommie
Near the beautiful Hebrew rug
And then sent her away
After one final BIG hug!

The trio waved to their parents
From the door of the school,
All three shouted, "Don't cry guys!
Kindergarten is COOL!"

As Mommie cheered by the flag pole with glee,
She squealed with delight
Her triplets are officially in the class of 2023

Twas the First day of Kindergarten as easy as can be,
Happy School Year to all, and to all in the class of 23

Thanks everyone, it was an awesome day for ALL of us.

I am re-writing the school's parent handbook to add other vital information- for example, There is a drive thru Starbuck's a few blocks away, but since it is technically PAST the school, it goes unseen. How could we all NOT know that?

Oh, and I have survived 4.5 years, as mine are entering Kindergarten before their 5th birthday, by choice.
