First Day of School

Today my baby goes to first grade. I think I’m more nervous than he is.

His new thing is not going to sleep until after 10. It makes me crazy because I want him down and asleep around 9 so I can have some time to myself and wind down.

We had a good weekend. We didn’t do much on Saturday except grocery shop and get a new lunch box for school. He picked out a Pirates of the Caribbean one. When the sun started to go down, I mowed the front and the back. It was dark by the time I finished but it sure beat doing it in the middle of the afternoon when it was 100 degrees outside.

Then on Sunday we hung around the house until late afternoon. I headed to a friend’s for her daughter’s birthday but we didn’t stay long. Then we headed off to church.

They had family night at church and after worship, they had hot dogs and bounce houses. I guess my system isn’t used to processed foods like that anymore because I certainly had indigestion afterward. In fact, I felt downright BLAH.

I would have thought the kiddo would have been worn out from doing all the bounce houses but NOOOOOOOOO. He still refused to go to sleep early like he was supposed to. He must be growing – he’s eating me out of house and home.

Anyway. The weekend we way too fast. And now we have to start all over again with Monday. sigh

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
