My 10-year old son does not want me to escort him to school tomorrow on his First Day of Fifth Grade. He just wants to be dropped off. I had to tease him a little, pretend pout: “You don’t want me to walk you to your classroom? And kiss you good-bye?” He’s so over me.
My daughter doesn’t start kindergarten until next Wednesday. The divide the kindergarten class up and have only a few kids a day arrive for the first few days. They call it a “Slow Start” and it’s new since my last child was in kindergarten. I think it’s a good idea and will make the first day of school easier for my little girl.
And the teenagers? They are still awake and it’s nearly 1:30 a.m. We await their curriculum which is somewhere between here and there. Can’t wait to make them get up early and break this horrible cycle of late nights and late mornings. I’m the only one who should be conscious at this hour!
