School is Hard

Yep, school is hard. You have to get up early. You have to go to bed early. And I'm sure it's not a piece of cake for Abby either.

Here's Abby on her first day of kindergarten, eating her peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich and drinking her Yoo-Hoo at lunch. Why, yes, I am up for Mother of the Year, how'd you guess?

Abby with her new BFF, only she couldn't remember her name. I guess their bond went deeper than that.

And the whole class...we'll see if they're all smiling by the end of the year.

On my end of things,I had no idea how out of the swing of things we had gotten in the Lane house. A little over a year ago, I was getting myself and 2 kids ready every morning and out the door by 7:00. Now, I'm having a hard time getting one child dressed, fed and ready to go by 7:30. I never really understood those moms who drop their kids off at school in their pajamas. I stand corrected because I totally get it now. I have not done it yet, but there is no stone throwing here. Mainly because I feel sure it will happen one day. Like when it's 10 degrees outside and still dark at 7:00 in the morning. Then I'll probably wear my pajamas to drop Abby off at school. And rest assured, on that day, I will have a flat tire. Or Abby will leave her backpack or lunchbox in the car, and I will have to take it in to her. You can count on it. That's how I roll.


  1. Come to the dark side, Gina. You know you want to wear your Tweety Bird jammies tomorrow. Come on... LOL! Oh wintertime is even better! You can hide your jammies under a big coat. I did have to make a return trip to the school to fetch a backpack, so I made a quick change into sweats before going back. That is how I roll.

    Luke told me he had made 2 new best friends. When I asked their names, he told me he had no idea. Names really aren't that important at that age.

    I am so jealous that you got to be there for lunch! We don't get to see that, so I never know if my kids eat or not. My daughter likely does, but since my son lives on a steady diet of chocolate milk, air, and gummy bears, there's a pretty good chance he's not eating anything.

    Abby is a cutie!

  2. What is a peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwich? Like the marshmallow cream that you use to make fudge? I didn't know it was used for anything else...sounds intriguing!

    I TOTALLY couldn't get out of the house by that time. Yuck!


Tell me what you think...go on, I can take it!
