"One Million Dollars!"
This reminds me of Dr. Evil in Austin Powers....except it's not with the pinky! =) OK, I know, I'm in lala land sometimes, I admit it. =)
Monday is the day.....the day my little girl goes to school. I'm not doing very well and I'm serious when I say this....my hair is falling out. HUGE chucks of it comes out when I brush it....it's horrible. I'm wigging out a bit.
Yesterday, we had "Meet the Teacher" and I guess I was a bit disappointed. I'm looking for every little thing that I can complain about so I don't have to send her. Her teacher seems really nice but very timid and scared. I keep thinking these kids are going to eat her alive. I'm picturing Kindergarten Cop where they're running around butt-wild painting each other with lamp shades on their heads! LOL!! Call me crazy! Anywho, she seems really nice and excited to start so that's a good thing. Gracie has 10 girls and 7 boys in her class.....I'm thinking there's going to be a cat-fight soon....too little boys, too little time and Gracie is BOY-CRAZY! God help them! =)
Most of my closes friends are teachers so I hear all the horror stories and stuff but thought, "Oh, they're over-reacting, it can't be that bad!" Well folks, I'm here to tell you, that I'm dead wrong. There's a mother that is already "THAT MOTHER" that expects their child to get special treatment from the teacher....her undividing attention (and it's not even the first day of school yet). You should have heard the things coming out of her mouth last night...I'm sure I looked like a deer caught in headlights with my jaw to the floor looking at her....WTH? Grady being someone that just lets things slide was floored! It boggles my mind.....I'm speechless really!
Then today was the Kindergarten lunch so they could get a feel of going through the lunchline. It was so cute (and yet I was secertly crying inside) watching Gracie go through the line. The menu consisted of chocolate milk and a hot dog...she passed on the corn and pineapple bites. And nope...she didn't eat the hot dog...only the bun. Needless to say I'll be packing her lunch most of the time otherwise I see her telling people that she only gets bread and water for lunch and pretty soon CPS will be knocking on my door. LOL! =) We are going to try to have her eat there 1 day a week and hopefully she'll expand her food palette! =)
She made 3 new friends today....Christina, Blake and Ashlinn and we've already been invited to Christina's b'day party, so that's cool! =) And get this...I didn't want to look like a fool bringing my camera today, but after lunch they had the whole Kindergarten class stand up on the stage to take a picture....just my luck! "A day late, a dollar short" and "Why don't you kick my dog while your at it".....has been my moto lately! And I tried to take it with my phone cam, it was a no go....I couldn't figure it out! =)
And on the way home I started to cry again...and Gracie said the sweetest thing to me. She told me that this is going to be good for her and she'll learn a bunch of new things but she'll always come home to me. OMG, tear-jerker! I sometimes wonder how she can be so sweet (most of the time.....scroll down and see the bathtub hissy fit)...if you ask Grady, he'd tell you it's not from me. =) Then she said that she was going to draw me a picture and I could look at it when I missed her and think of her....what a kid she is! She amazes me sometimes. =)
Wow, this is my longest post...hopefully you made it all the way through without getting bored! Everyone have a wonderful weekend!
