Chelsea Clinton was on mommy duty Monday morning, as she and one of her nannies headed out to take daughter Charlotte to her first day of the school.
The three ladies seemed very excited for the big day, but no one more so than Charlotte, who could be seen excitedly smiling in her stroller as her mom pushed her to school.
Things should get even more exciting tomorrow for two-year-old Charlotte when her grandma Hillary stops by the neighborhood to sign copies of her memoir ‘What Happened’ at Barnes & Noble in Union Square.

This was a big change from last year, when Charlotte headed off to her first day with dad Marc Mezvinsky instead of her mom.
She was however accompanied by the nanny on that trip as well, who later picked her as well from school at the end of the day.
Her mother could not be there for the big day because she was on the campaign trail for her mother in North Carolina.
Grandma Hillary also missed Charlotte’s first day of school last year as she was recovering from pneumonia at her home in nearby Chappaqua.
Two days prior to that Hillary had suddenly fallen ill during a visit to the 9/11 memorial in New York City.
This caps off a very exciting summer of travel for the Clinton-Mezvinsky clan.
The group took two big family vacations, heading off to Europe before enjoying a 10-day jaunt up north to Canada with Bill and Hillary.
It has also been a great summer for Chelsea.
That is thanks to the success of her new children’s book ‘She Persisted,’ which has remained in the top 20 on Amazon since its release and looks to be the most successful venture yet of the former first daughter’s career.
And in a battle of the first daughters, her book has also outsold Ivanka Trump’s summer release ‘Women Who Work.’
The collection of stories was inspired by Elizabeth Warren according to a release sent out by publisher Penguin Young Readers, and as evidenced by Chelsea’s decision to use the Massachusetts senator’s rally cry for the title of the book.
Chelsea will be the first to cash in on the popular catchphrase, with a spokesperson for Penguin offering no comment when asked by DailyMail.com if any of the proceeds from the book will be going to charity.
Among the 13 women making an appearance in the children’s picture book will be Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, Sally Ride, Florence Griffith Joyner, Oprah Winfrey and Sonia Sotomayor.
Less familiar names including Clara Lemlich, Nellie Bly, Maria Tallchief, Claudette Colvin, Ruby Bridges, and Margaret Chase Smith are also featured in the collection.
Chelsea and her family are back to the daily grind after a summer of vacations

‘I wrote this book for everyone who’s ever wanted to speak up but has been told to quiet down – for everyone who’s ever been made to feel less than,’ said Chelsea of her first foray into the world of children’s literature.
‘The thirteen women in She Persisted all overcame adversity to help shape our country – sometimes through speaking out, sometimes by staying seated, sometimes by captivating an audience.’
She then added: ‘With this book, I want to send a message to young readers around the country – and the world – that persistence is power.’
This will be the third book Chelsea has released, having previously written a social empowerment book for middle-school children in 2015 entitled ‘It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going!’ and then just this past January releasing her worldwide health tome ‘Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why?’
The latter proved to be a dismal failure for Chelsea, who never even bothered to promote the book in the wake of her mother Hillary’s defeat in last year’s election.
That might explain why the book performed so poorly, and just two months after its release was number 128,444 on the Amazon bestsellers list.
Chelsea’s official author bio states that in addition to her write she is ‘Vice Chair of the Clinton Foundation, where she works on many initiatives including those that help to empower the next generation of leaders.’
The money she will likely be pulling in for her latest book should provide plenty of comfort for the family of four, who have been relying on just one breadwinner for months.
As for Marc, it was revealed back in February that he had quietly shut down his hedge fund Eaglevale Partners last year.
