This message brought to you by the first week of school…


I can’t wait for tomorrow. Seriously. These last two days? CRAZY. Captain Adventure started kindergarten on Monday. (I still have trouble accepting that my baby is in kindergarten, but let’s not start down that road again…)

Eldest had her orientation for middle school today. This managed to take up about four hours, even though it was only a two hour orientation.

The middle two are peppering me with questions and demands. Is ‘that’ dress clean? No, that’s MINE! Nuh-uh! Uh-HUH! Shriek! MOMMY I NEED A HAIRCUT! Did you wash my socks? No, not those socks the other socks!

And, my personal favorite so far, uttered about twenty minutes ago: “Could you knit me a new pair of pink socks for school tomorrow?”

But tomorrow, all four of them will be in school. Granted, Captain Adventure has an early release day and thus will be home three hours early, but for at least, uh, two hours…all four, in school, at the same time…

If you need me from 9:00 to 11:00 tomorrow, I will be taking a nap.

With the door locked.

And the phone off.

So, uh, don’t need me.

‘Kay? OK. And now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go figure out how to patch a backpack…

patch it from the inside! or it won't lzst a week. And use denim if you can as it will wear longer. And glue, lots of superglue.
