this after i was up all night with a newborn.
i could write a sentimental post, but listen, they're in a better place. i.e. mom is a crazy lady who doesn't sleep and acts bipolar for sure.
this is literally how i feel inside. as seen in a terrible you tube video of an orangutan dancing. i actually heard this same music as we pulled up to the school.
(layne's hair =lloyd christmas)
child: mom, why are you eating cupcakes for breakfast? and is that your second?
me: guys. quit being so observant. eat your bland cereal and be thankful.
so basically, we got to school. spent way too much time in lila's kindergarten class with all the other excited/sentimental/pretend sentimental parents. and lila told me to leave, so whatever. i left. after i showed her her desk and asked her if she wanted to join the other kiddos playing legos on the floor. she said no. she just wanted to unpack her school supplies and then went over to the teacher's desk where she found a cup of markers.
you should have seen her face. she was in heaven. ALL THESE MARKERS, mom!
that's when i knew she would be ok. i told the teacher, hey...she found your markers. you might want to watch out for that one.
(should have shown her pictures of all the lampshades, walls, couches, lila's "arted" all over.)
then chuckled awkwardly /slightly evil-ish as i left. i was not sad. lila was not sad. this is going to be a good year for her with lots of things i can't give her at home.
for instance, attention. minor detail of parenting.
reference this picture if you don't believe me: it's a known fact no child takes you seriously when you try and parent while nursing. they laugh in your face.
winter garb in the summer.
anyway, of course we were late getting to layne's classroom and we literally shoved him in the door. he looked back with anxiety on his face. i whisper yelled, it's going to be fine, buddy. , i mouthed 3rd grade! with one hand in the air cheering and through the little window in the door.
i'm sorry. it's all i got right now, layne.
penelope will go to preschool in a couple weeks and i'm wondering if there's a newborn preschool. PRE pre school. jay kay. i love having pruett all to myself. and even penelope. i haven't been able to really spend a lot of one on one time with her either. yay to a year of firsts for this family! (that was my pathetic cheer). at least we're doing it together.
alllll six of us.
ok giant parenthetical statement coming up:
( i feel like i should reference for memories sake, last night we went out-- without any kids...even Pruett, for my birthday. we have awkward proof.
and the kids and hubs got me cards that were so sweet.
and i won't remember any of it because i don't sleep and everything is a blur.
so this makes it real. this happened, tired self! )
