Connor just came home from visiting Mom and Dad. He's not really thrilled about starting school, and I'm not either. I know he needs to go and learn, but I feel like I have to go back to school, too! So not fair! I spent sixteen grueling years in school and now I have to go through all of that again? Ugh!
I'm more nervous than Connor because I know what to expect. I worry he won't make friends, he'll back-talk the teacher, and be that kid that all of the parents whisper about- making me that mom who has to kick some other parents butt.
I hope he'll do fine and I hope he'll learn quickly. I don't want to get pulled into the principals office every day. Shew, I'm working myself into a panic attack all ready! Breathe in...breathe out...
Connor had a lot of fun visiting my mom and dad. He went to the aquarium and saw Mighty Mike. He's a huge Gator- and he looks a little intimidating. I wonder if I can rent him as a lawn ornament?
Connor bought his Sissy a little squeaky Gator toy, and it's driving Precious (our Jack Russel Mix) batty every time she makes it squeak. I didn't know Percy hated noisy toys. I need to buy more of them. Maybe that will keep her from nesting in the closets. ANyways, he also bought her a little pink Gator change purse. It's so cute! I bet badass, Mighty Mike loved the idea of little pink purses made in his image.
Really, I can't complain too much. I've been blessed with two wonderful, healthy, beautiful children, loving friends and family members, and a budding literary career. Is it too much more to ask for my kids not to grow up so fast?
