I'm Just Waiting For the Principal to Call and Tell Me She's Already Been Suspended

My baby started Kindergarten today. She wore the outfit we bought months ago just for this day, and took her brand-new pink imitation leather, rhinestone studded, Super Girl backpack complete with water bottle.

We walked to the classroom together hand in hand. She was so excited and chatty, and I was trying my best not to cry. As soon as we got to the door, she turned around and said, "Bye Mom."

Nuh uh, no way kid. I spent 6 years both waiting for and dreading this moment, dammit. I walked her INTO the classroom, kissed her, hugged her, and embarrassed her like any decent mom should. Hey, at least I wasn't recording her every move on a camcorder like some parents were.

For about a minute, I just stood there fighting back tears. Then the feeling passed and I wanted to shout, "We're FREEEEEEEE!!! Martinis and Margaritas at my place!"

Still Around

So, I thought that I was going to have tons of time on my hands this summer since I am out of school. Obviously, I was mistaken as evidenced by the fact that my last post was over a month ago.

Things in the sleep deprived household aren't too shabby, just rowdy. Anna and Cassie have been out of daycare/preschool for the last 2 months, meaning I'm ready to pull my hair out. Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that I've been able to spend time with them since the last couple of years were so crazy. However, two very loud little girls coupled with a very loud screaming baby makes me want to break into the med room at work and down a few valium.

Speaking of work, I returned early due to the fact that money doesn't grow on trees and kids are expensive. Right now, I'm working in the same position, but I'll start working as a nurse on the 21st. I am scared shitless.
If I don't kill anyone on my first day, it will be a miracle. Of course, I'm kidding...maybe.

Gotta add some pics of the girls. Rachel is only smiling because she knew there was a nice little surprise waiting for me in her diaper.
