Kindergarten is OVER RATED!!!

OK! I know I am not the only person who has had a hard time with Kindergarten and I hate to admit it ... but Kindergarten is kicking my rear!!!

  • Getting 2 kids + self ready is dang near impossible without my hubby. (Savannah is anything but a morning person)

  • A million pieces of paperwork for Savannah's diabetes

  • Two solid weeks of lunch with 200 plus 5-7 year old kids is my version of hell!

Good thing there are teachers who love their job and love other peoples children. They have patience beyond my comprehension. I would've dropped kicked a kid into the middle of next week by now. One of them would have been my precious little Shayde. She has sure pushed the patience factor to the limit. The whole school thing is new to her and it doesn't help matters much that Savannah is getting so much attention due to her diabetes. She has done better the last couple of days, but the first 1 1/2 weeks was absolutely horrible. She was completely obnoxious. She broke all of her crayons, told the teacher she couldn't count and that she didn't know her ABC's! Are you kidding me? She has been able to count in spanish since she was 3 thanks to Aunt TeeTee, but she wouldn't do it for the teacher. I got my first cold sore...never in my 30+ years have I had a cold sore! Leave it to Shayde, Savannah and Kindergarten to bring it out! Things will get better. Let's pray Mom doesn't flunk Kindergarten! :)

First Day of Kindergarten

I can't believe that my babies started Kindergarten today! It just doesn't seem like they are that old! Jay and I were a little bit nervous this morning, but all in all it went OK. I cried a little when we left their classroom, but they were not sad to see us leave one bit. They were so excited and I know they will do just fine.
Ready to go to the bus stop! So CUTE!
