GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie) has started ad­just­ing to hav­ing a kid in preschool, but it hasn’t been easy! “First day, I’m an emo­tional wreck,” con­fesses the day­time vet, who co-par­ents Harper ,4, with for­mer hus­band Bran­don Bar ash( ex-Johnny ).“I’ m hold­ing her hand as she’s cross­ing the street with her back­pack on, start­ing to flip. I look at Bran­don, and I’m like, ‘I can’t be­lieve this!’ He just rolled his eyes.”

It seems fa­ther and daugh­ter were more pre­pared for the big life change than mom was. “First three min­utes, she’s in her un­der­wear, in the baby pool, cov­ered in mud,” Storms laughs, re­call­ing Harper’s de­but at the school rec­om­mended by her bestie, Emme Ry­lan (Lulu). “They have bearded dragons, live chick­ens and Maria, a large tor­toise — who we ac­tu­ally found out was a boy. The tur­tle just walks around freely. So do the chick­ens.” Sounds like a per­fect preschool to us!

Storms can’t be­lieve her lit­tle girl (in­set) is grow­ing up.
