Damn these commericals

It just frosts my cookies seeing some of these commericals for places like Popeye's, and Sonic on television. We don't have them in my area and I love them. It is like a cruel taunt. I can only hope that they are trying to get thier name known in our area because they are planning on coming here. Chilis did that years back, you'd see their ads and there was none in the area then one day while driving you'd see the sign "Future home of Chilis" or something along those lines. Here is to wishful thinking.

Another week down

Another week of school down. I still am not used to getting up at or brfore the ass crack of dawn. Don't think I ever will be.

I am so proud of Madeline she hd her first test of the year and got a 100% on it. Speaking of grades I want to kow when an 86% became a C. I was shocked at the grading scale used in her school a 74% is an F. WTF??!! I don't agree with that at all and think it puts unneeded pressure on these young kids.

That didn't take long

Okay so no call from the teacher but Lilly told me that she and Owen kissed again. Ugh my girl likes boys and she is only 5! Is that too young for an all girl boarding school? Ah puppy love. Now if this was someone else's kid I'd so be loving it, thinking it was so cute and sweet. I try to drill BOOKS NOT BOYS into my daughter's minds. Think the little one needs to hear it some more. It will become our daily mantra.

Back to school - Close call

Woo hoo long weekend is over and the kids went back to school today. My husband set the alarm wrong for me this morning so we really overslept. He set it for 6:55 am we are outside for the bus around 7:05 but I made it work. We made it out to the bus stop in time. I never knew that I could move so fast. I could of taken my time and drove her into school now that I think about it but after a rough night I just wasn't thinking.

I went back to bed for a bit after got Lilly on the bus. That was great since I had such a horrible night's sleep if I got 3 hours I'd say that was a lot. Got some house work done, it is amazing how fast I can get stuff done when there are no kids around.

Lilly told me today at school that she kissed Owen on the cheek. Oy vey it is starting already, and that she really really really loves school. It is so much fun!
(Boy do I hope she keeps that attitude). Madeline on the other hand is not so happy with the fact that the homework has started already. I make her do it before she can play outside which she doesn't like too much. The weather here now is real nice, we really didn't have much of a summer, and she wants to enjoy it. Can't blame her but school comes first.

My baby starts kindergarten.

Here Lilly is at the bus stop all excited to be starting school. She is so thrilled to be taking the bus.

Bye baby! Have fun at school, I hope you like it.

Yes, yes okay I admit it. I was a crazy mommy who once the bus picked her up ran to my car to race to the school to get a shot of her getting off the bus as well. And ran inside the school to get ahead of her to get a shot of her heading down to her classroom for the first time. Since I was there I figured what the hell and took a few shots of her in the classroom as well. why not? I was already there.

She is so excited be be going to school and that two of her friends from pre k, Jenna and Owen, whomb Lilly has a crush on are in her class. He was her first kiss this summer at swim lessons. I am so expecting a phone call from her teacher one of these days about the two of them.

Movin' on up to the 3rd grade

Wow September already where did the time go? Today Madeline started the 3rd grade and what a transition it is. New school new routine. I am not plaed with her catching the bus a few minutes after 7:00 am. I think it is way to early for the kids that age to be going to school. Last year she started at 9:00 am. This year she starts before the middle school kids. She is so not a morning person and waking her up at 6 something is so not fun. And I don't like having to get up that early either to be truthful.
