    Darling pic of LB! My daughter starts preschool next week too. We’ve got Open House tonight, so I’ll miss Girls Night In! No minivan here either…

  • September 6, 2007

    I’m so glad it went well (mini-vans aside)! It doesn’t get better than no tears. Trust me—I know as I’m still hoping to not see tears very soon (had another rough entry into school today).

    Will be missing GNI but hope you all have a great time!

    Aww! Bittersweet day. I’m glad she ran to you—that’s the BEST. smile

    What a cute picture!

    Did you burn rubber after you dropped her off?

    Lil’ Whiskey started preschool this week, too!  3.5 hours a day, 3 days a week.

    And we’re getting the minivan this weekend.

    {sigh}  That’s it, isn’t it?  We’re no longer hip, huh?

    Wait.  This is US.  We were NEVER hip wink

    I feel your non-minivan-driving pain. My little sporty sedan looks like an odd duck in the sea of minivans at pre-school each morning. I can’t imagine the other-mommy-looks I’m going to get in a year or so when I trade it in for my dream car - a Saab convertible.

    I have to admit that I do understand their usefulness I just don’t want to drive one and can’t seem to talk the husband into it either.

    great….it’s 9 in the morning and I’m already holding back the tears!

    You will so enjoy those two hours two days a week, and so will she.  And I understand on the minivan parade.  Although I used to have one, it was the wrong kind.  Around here the Honda Odyssey is the cream of the crop and we just had a lowly caravan without stow and go seating.  Now I drive an almost wagon and I love it.  Enjoy the one-child time you will be getting.

    Toyota Echo here!LOL!
    Let me tell you there’s a whole new box of crap that comes with the school years! Oh the frustrations with the system that doesn’t work, the parents who haven’t parented have their spawn sitting beside yours, The freaking stupid Allergic reaction rules that they can’t actually define for you, so the wording become Nut aware instead of “Free”. Oh and how I could go on… Others have survived apparently I guess I will too.

    Sorry This is your blog!LOL!

    Imagine pulling into the sea of minivans driving an old beater of a crew cab dually truck that has the turning radius of a sherman tank, so everyone watches you trying to park a truck the size of a small planet. raspberry

    My big kiddo started kindergarten on Wednesday.  Aaah, 6 hours and 19 minutes of one kid 5 days a week!

    “I realized we aren’t that far away from being those people: the ones with the kids in school and the sanity we had years before”...

    I have one in school and that one keeps me busier than the other ones!  Field trips, homework, cheer practice….it just gets more and more insane everyday. 

    As exhausting as these days are for you, they are the ones you actually have more control of.  Not trying to burst your bubble, I’m just sayin’.....

    That’s a great picture…where are the handprints on the door?  Did you just clean them or are they always that way?

    YaY! I guess I didn’t know you had an xterra! Do you know that is what I drove until this third baby made it impossible to acommodate all the car seats?  The thing is, you have to kill these other moms will kindness? I cannot tell you how many limpwristed handshakes I received after forcing myself on many of the moms in my girl’s classes last friday. It has to be done. I am a force to be reckoned with bitches! minivans be damned!

    Dude, I join you in rebelling as an SUV drivin’ mom! SUV MOMS ROCK!

    She looks really cute. I’m glad it went well. You’ll be glad to have some sanity time!

    And those organized, on time moms? Once in a blue moon I feel that way and then I pinch myself. wink
