First Day of School

Friday, March 14, 2008

So we made it through "summer" with a few trips and a few visits from friends and family.  The kids were ready to start...Max in 1st grade and Lila in Pre-K.  We talked to Lila about starting school.  We bought her all the Hello Kitty gear we could find mostly because it's all pink stuff.  Because she loves pink "142" which is a lot since blue she only likes "5".  Me, she likes "143".  Whew, I'm so glad she likes me more than pink.

Sunday night we prepared all of our gear.  The kids wanted pizza and a ham sandwich and the chocolate pre-packaged cupcakes.  We laid out the clothes, set the alarm for 5:53am and since my husband was out of town, the 3 of  us piled into my bed, read a few books and promptly all fell asleep, including me.

Wow that alarm comes early.  We got up, got dressed and Lila only did a bit of whining about not wanting to go.  She told me on the way to school that it was important that I tell her teacher that:

A.  She didn't want to learn today because she already knew everything.

B.  She only wanted to play today.

Ok Lila, I'll be sure to tell her that.

We got to the school by 7am and Lila was still holding it together.  They were doing the Monday morning opening ceremony and announcement.  Lila played at the park a bit while Max disappeared with his good friend Juan Jose.

I dropped Max off and took Lila to her room.  There were a couple of crying kids but she did great because of course she knows everything already.  I told her after a few minutes I had to go run errands and buy her treat for after school.  Yahoo!  I outconned her!  

I returned at 11:30 to pick her up and she had a huge smile on her face.  She declared that she wasn't ready to leave.
