the moth has flown.

well don't worry about it guys, i haven't had the intranet for like, a whole week. omgeeee, shoot me in my little toe. that's how annoyed it is not to have the dubdubdub. but whatevs. let us talk of important matters.

i have a kindergartner. yes, i know. you're thinking, how does a 13 year old have a kindergartner...well i'm actually 30. i act and sometimes look like a middle schooler, but really i'm a stressed out mom who longs to have her internet functioning.

layne was apprehensive about going into school. of course. why would you think otherwise?

layne went straight to his "hook" because, he enjoys organized living and structure. um, unlike me. so ya, we clash on almost everything.

and what are the chances that layne is sitting next to the other asian in the class?

here's layne's work space, because you so wanted to know.

and this is me being reluctant to leave the classroom. i just wanted to be a fly on the wall for a day and see how layne behaves/learns/talks in the classroom. i mean, it's a french school, so i couldn't even understand the teachers. i was all, um, good luck buddy...i know you'll get it.

but he loves it. he's getting the language. what a neat opportunity...i mean knowing another language fluently by the time you leave middle school? sign me up! wait, i'm passed middle school. my time has passed. layne, you have more opportunity than i did. that's the way it's supposed to be.

anyshways, i didn't cry. you might think i would. except that layne was ready to go to kindergarten. he's a social butterfly...errr...moth(something more boyish). he loves learning languages. he is smart. he's going to thrive.

that boy's growing up and i love who he's turning into. i mean, i love who he is now too. i'm just going to stop writing now because i'm rambling. maybe i'll cry tonight or something.

  1. shirt tucked in and everything...with a belt to really make his look complete. i can't believe you have a kindergartener. i'm not even sure if i spelt that right...or if i spelt 'spelt' right. layne is going to make our family look reeeeal good. real good.

  5. Precious! I really almost just cried. It is so emotional to think of our precious babies in school. And way to be all up in there with your camera to capture that stuff.

  10. Ya it's a French immersion school...it's a free charter school in KC and it's pretty awesome. Especially the free part ! And Audrey, he has to tuck in his shirt...they have uniforms there. Laune of course loves that part.

  11. i don't understand. he's been doing "school" for the past 6 weeks yet he was still apprehensive about it?

    crazy asian.

    oh, and how i love organized structure. maybe that's why we hate each other so much.

  15. LOL! He's adorbs. Totally. And I've always wanted to have my kids go to an immersion school (or something like that). I wish I had taken the time to become fluent in Spanish (that was trendy at the time) so now I will have to force my dream on my little guy. Sorry, dude.

  16. Someday when Layne buys you that summer home in Paris all the hard work will be really worth it. And then you'll eat your chocolate croissant and laugh the laugh of victory.

    Now that Layne is gone, are you and the girls spending your days in your chonies, watching HGTV and eating chocolate? Thought so.

  17. Don't know why this made me get all teary-eyed. I must be hormonal, or just can't believe that my little boy is growing up too. He starts preschool soon and for some reason I am a bit melancholy about it. Love the idea of a french school. Awesome.

  23. Just found your blog today through Handmade Home and thinking I might need to read the archives. I was LOL on the Asian comment. I am also in an inter-racial marriage. That sounds so formal; let me rephrase. I married an Indian guy, but not a "real Indian person". He's from Delaware.

  24. This post made me laugh out loud multiple times. I just discovered your blog via the guest post at Life Made Lovely. It's funny timing that I read this because my 4 yr old tonight (for the first time) did not want me to lay down with him when i put him to bed.:( You kinda want to cry but you're excited to see them grow up!!
