I think my last post was is something for moms that I'm looking for. The perfect poem. I have a few but they are very long. I think there is one that goes with tea and tissues but I can't locate it. I would LOVE your help

"SchoolTime" posted this last week. I think it's what you're looking for.

Dearest Kindergarten Parents,
Here is a little "gift" for you as you leave your precious one with me on the first day of school. As you hold this cotton ball in your hand, the softness will help you to
remember the gentle spirit of your child. After you've gone home and dried
your tears, make yourself a hot cup of tea . Put up your feet and
relax. Remember that together you and I will work for your child to be the
best they can be.
Thank you for entrusting your child to me for the coming school year. I will
do my very best every day to be your child's guide in learning and exploring
this bright, new world they've just stepped into.
(your signature)
(Put poem in a ziplock bag with the following items: a cotton ball, a Kleenex and a tea bag)
This idea was shared on a teacher bulletin board.

Here is one that I use

First Day of Kindergarten

Everyone has a first day
When they feel sad and all alone
It can be scary
when you are on your own
And I know that a first day
Can be full of doubts and fears
But they are full of new beginnings
Take my hankie, dry your tears

You'll find lots of things to do
And you'll probably make new friends
I promise we'll be together
Whenthe school day ends

Here comes the teacher
Blow your nose and be brave
Come on now and wipe your eyes
This is no way to behave

Well, Good Morning, Teacher
We really do beg your pardon
No, Mommy doesn't always act this way
But it's my first day of Kindergarten!

Here's the poem I am sending home..I'm going to put it on construction paper with their handprint & name.

The First Day

I gave you a little wink and a smile
As you entered my room today.
For I know how hard it is to leave
And know your child must stay.
Youíve been with them for five years now
And have been a loving guide,
But now, alas, the time has come
To leave them at my side.
Just know that as you drive away
And tears down your cheeks may flow
Iíll love them as I would my own
And help them learn and grown.
How quickly the years do pass
And that one day soon it will be my turn
To take my child to class.
So please put your mind at ease
And cry those tears no more
For I will love them and take them in
When you leave them at my door.

I replied to your message today! I found the one that you put in a little ziplock baggy with a cotton ball, penny, tea bag, etc.
Here it is again, for others, you need a tissue, tea bag, penny and cotton ball with it:
You've dropped off your child, and as hard as you try,
you may need this tissue for the tears in your eyes.
Relax with some tea and soon you will find
you can leave all of you school worries behind.
If you need a reminder of your little loved one, hold onto the cotton the school day soon will be done.
Here is a penny, it's for your thoughts, It's to remind you that I want to hear from you lots.
Thanks for entrusting your child to me. I plan to make this school year as great as can be!
