Today’s the first day of 4th grade!
My children would have omitted the exclamation point.
I’m fighting the urge to add sixteen more.
I’m also fighting the change to my morning schedule since for the past six weeks, I’ve been rolling out of bed between 8:30 – 9:00.
The school bell rings at 7:50.
We’ve been a little busy around Casa de Carpool getting ready for the big day.
There were hairs to be cut.
Notebooks to be purchased.
And when the checkout lady at Wal*Mart saw my cartload, she politely asked, “Are you a teacher?”
To which I replied, “Do I get a discount?”
And while I was sorting 30 notebooks, 24 folders and enough pencils that make me responsible for deforesting half of Brazil, what did I find, Dear Reader, at the bottom of Baby A’s backpack from last year?
I appreciate and applaud his good oral hygeine, but I am slightly concerned that he’s been using this because I’ve never bought him a Spiderman spinning toothbrush and I have no idea from whence it came.
Have a nice day.
