Jessica Simpson shared a wonderful family photo from her 2-year-old daughter Birdie’s first day of pre-school, which she described as a “emotional and joyous morning.”
What a strong, self-reliant woman! Birdie Mae, Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson’s 2-year-old daughter, started pre-school on Wednesday (Sept. 8), and Jessica, 41, said that her youngest child was the one who insisted she start!
“Little Miss Birdie is the BOSS,” says the narrator. Before Birdie was sent off to school, she said, ‘I want school right now please,'” Jessica posted on Instagram beside a family portrait of the couple and Birdie. “We tell them, ‘Ummm, you’re only 2 Bird,’” Jessica explained.
Birdie asked for her “teacher,” the “I Wanna Love You Forever” singer continued to recount the humorous discussion she had with her lookalike daughter, telling her followers. When Jessica inquired about Birdie’s instructor, the 2-year-old said, “Mama she is at my school foolish, you funny…ok let’s leave now.” Jessica tried unsuccessfully to keep her daughter at home for a little longer.
“We say to each other, ‘Birdie, let us wait a little longer.’ ‘I’m not a baby, I go to school now,’ she says. ‘Well, you’re our baby,’ we say. ‘No, yous are my babies, let’s go,’ she said, and off we ran to catch up.”
Birdie’s first day of pre-school was “an emotional and happy morning,” according to the mother of three, who revealed that she is “in a little of shock” now that her daughter is gone. She said, “Gosh darn, #BIRDIEMAE is in Pre-School.”
Jessica and Eric, 41, now have the house to themselves after Birdie went to pre-school. On Aug. 26, their other two children, daughter Maxwell, 9, and son Ace, 8, began school, and Jessica captured the moment with a photo of the siblings sharing a lovely hug on the family’s front steps.
“FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OVER A YEAR AND A HALF, THESE HAPPY KIDS ARE BACK TO SCHOOL!!!! It’s a new school. There are new beginnings. Jessica wrote, “This clan is feeling very blessed.”
Over the summer, Jessica and her five-member family shared many memorable experiences, including Ace’s championship baseball game and Maxwell’s ninth birthday. Jessica and Birdie also became closer when the latter’s youngest child struck a series of postures for a cute Instagram collage Jessica published in late July.
