After the preschool drop-off, daughter and I went to register son for kindergarten. Daughter will be in preschool at the same time so I have been fantasizing about this for awhile. Thinking of all the free time I would have. A luxurious hour to clean the bathroom. Grocery shopping alone, without a trail of cereal behind the cart. Hot showers with time afterwards to apply makeup. Basically, mommy Nirvana.
So I was wondering who this woman was that was bawling over her minivan steering wheel in the grade school parking lot. Clearly some poor slob who didn’t realize that she was heading into a new and awesome alone-time phase of parenting. But there I was, crying and calling my husband because the kids in the school were “soo (hiccup) big!”
When I got back to preschool later that afternoon, I dropped to my knees for a big giant little boy hug. Son walked up to me with his arms at his side and said in rapid fire, “CanwegotoMcDonalds-canIhaveaplaydate-Dowehavechocolatemilk”.
So. When does kindergarten start again?
