Skewl Daze

Ben reminded me this morning of a sweet little 5 year old off to his first day of school. That is, if a 5 year old is 5' 11" and bald with a goatee. He was so nervous and I really felt for him. I sort of gave him the wife/mother speech.. You'll be great, you'll see! Don't think about everything that you have to do, just focus on one class at a time. June Cleaver eat your heart out...

Anyway, I really do know what Ben is going through (to a certain extent).. college is a bit on the scary side and if I was doing it now, I'd probably be completely white-haired.. or bald.

Yes, Dara, I know that was a short one.. I'll most likely bore you some more later.. :P

Whoa, that's one freaky 5 year old! I wouldn't want to be his kindergarden teacher...

Speaking of school days! My kids start school tomorrow. We spent the whole day on Saturday going from store to store finding all of the school gear for three kids. Including shoes for the girls. In the evening we sorted through clothes to find the best 5-7 outfits. My kids are ready and excited. Today I had the awful realization that in less than 9 years my youngest will complete her final year of primary education and hopefully embarking on some exciting college adventure. I am not ready for my kids to grow up. What will I do with my time?

What will you do with your time, Rebecca? You will be busier than ever and you will wonder why the time is slipping away so fast.

Dude, I know all too well about going to school in the married years. Although, I think it might be easier than being single, because when you are single, you want to Party! Yeah, baby yeah. But, for real, when you go to school, work full time, and eventually have kids, it WILL, and I repeat, WILL turn your hair grey. If it doesn't fall out first. LOL.
