Grade 1, Day 1


(Here's last year's, for comparison.)
We were almost late this morning, due to preschooler freak-outs including:
  • I wanted to see you in your PAJAMAS! [to me when I went into his room already dressed]
  • No you CAN'T come out of MY ROOM!
  • My shirt is TOO BIG!
  • NO! Don't put your arm around me. Jo! I put MY ARM around YOU!
  • NO bike trailer! NO silver car! ONLY THE BLACK CAR!

In the end he rode in the silver car (Daddy's) and then the bike trailer. So there.

This morning my preschooler woke up pale and staring, whispering, "I'm going to throw up!"

You can't! I cried. We have to drive your brother to the first day of school!

(In the end she was fine.)

Oh, getting ready for school. Good times, good times. We live 30 minutes from my kids' school, so we are up EARLY. The first couple of days were rough, but he is adjusting now.

Whew! I thought my little guy was the only kid who flipped out about his shirt bring "too big"...

I'm glad it ended well. Cute photo!

Sure sounds like my house, but I'm usually the one making such outrageous statements.

Lovely children. Hope the first day was great for her.

Aren't they just too cute!?

I'm very familiar with the preschooler freak out.

Another milestone...she looks so much older than last year's photo. Glad you still got to use the bike trailer!

Congratulations to big first-grader Jo!

They're both so cute! Cute is what allows these children to continue living post-freakout.

They're BOTH adorable.

LOL - I love how he wanted to put his arm around Jo only. Sounds like something Oliver would say.

They are so CUTE! We had similar freakouts this morning (no clean underwear, no "good" cereal) but managed to get them out the door with the proper number of snacks and bandaids. Hope they had a great day.
