We’re off to a strong start at middle school. I managed to hold up the carpool line the first day – both in the morning and the afternoon – but I think it worked to my advantage because the teacher on patrol gave me a Very Special Pass that gives me permission to drop off on the other side of the building for the rest of the year.
She said that the parents could be very mean if I held up their line.
I told her I’d already had the PTA president flip me off at elementary school carpool and that I didn’t scare easily.
But I took the pass quickly before she could change her mind.
The boys have adjusted well and every day come home with a list of new things that they need. Some of the things on the list are garden variety – a combination lock for gym, a single-subject notebook – but yesterday as they walked out the door, they were quite insistent that I buy them mouthwash and breath spray.
And I tried not to giggle.
So I went to Target and purchased their mouthwash, but I couldn’t find breath spray (because I think they only sell those in nightclub bathroom dispensing machines and truck stops) and quickly found out when they got back from school that it was CRITICAL that I find some.
JJ even took it upon himself to walk to the grocery store and scour the aisles and lo and behold he found and bought several sprayers with his own allowance and came back to share them with his brothers. Tommy decided to try it out. JJ provided off-camera instruction.
I thought the cat was a nice touch.
Have a nice day.
PS – Want to meet the cat in person? I’m thinking of having a get-together next week in honor of fellow blogger Whimzie who will be in town for a visit. If you’re a local blogger/blog commenter and you’d like to come, let me know.
