This weekend, as I was cleaning out Alex's backpack, I discovered her teacher had sent home her report card. 

Her very first report card.

I'm not the type of woman who cries on her daughter's first day of school or anything, but there are some moments in Alex's life -- her first steps, when she lost her first tooth -- that really sort of get to me.  And inexplicably, her receiving her first report card is one of them.  Is that odd?

Anyway, Marcus and I reckoned the report was good enough to warrant an ice cream cone celebration.

With sprinkles.
