First day of school.....woohoo
I do get all excited for the first day of school because, quite honestly, I am sick of hearing my kiddos fight all day long. Now that half of them are actually gone I keep staring at the clock wondering why it is moving so slow. I miss them. And I am paranoid dilon isn't paying attention to his blood sugar. Deep breaths and faith. He will be fine.
They picked their own clothes today. I am still trying to figure out if grif's choice of plaid shorts with a striped shirt is working or not. What I failed to capture are the socks he is wearing half way up his legs. He refuses to wear ankle socks because according to him "they suck". That is not a battle I am willing to fight, so long socks with shorts it is. When we went to back to school night last week his teacher commented on his mohawk. I said it would be coming off before school starts and she said that would probably be best. Didn't happen. Another battle I wasn't willing to have because he wants to keep it.
All the other moms make cute signs for their kids to hold for the first day of school picture. I'm awesome and tell mine to hold up their fingers. Less time consuming and much more convenient. I'm all about making life less complicated. And the other moms have their kids pose in front of the school sign and with their teachers. Really, I would like to do that as well but I embarrass my kids enough just being me. I'm afraid if I follow them around school with a camera they will start acting like they don't know me. I need a few more years before stuff like that can start happening.
Happy first day, boys!
