First Day of School

So, we did our dry run yesterday - perfect. Got showers early last night. Packed book-bags. Labelled. Labelled. Labelled. Made lunches. Picked out clothes for this AM. Charged camera, etc.

But, you know what they say about best laid plans....

Well, actually, I can't recall either...but there was something they said about them! And I am sure it would be appropriate as:


DH neglected to mention he would need to be to work by 8AM. That is, he neglected to mention this until bedtime last night, when his response to my surprise was: we'll figure something out.

Apparently this meant - unbeknownst to me - that he would get us all up at 6:15.

Exactly - 6:15 on the first day of school!

What?? Is he cracked??

I think so....

Furthermore, I am a trusting soul, it didn't occur to me, when he called me and the boys this AM, that it was not 6:50. I obediently got out of bed, called the kids, told them to hurry up, brushed my teeth and stumbled downstairs to see it was 6:21 on the clock on the stove...

WTF???

Do you know what time it is?? Do you know what time you woke us up??

Yes, he says...

Grrrrr.....

Now, despite this change of plans, I do have to say, everything went off this AM without a hitch. The boys are all settled in to their classes with many familiar faces, and a few new ones, surrounding them. I do not know either teacher, however, my first impressions are good. Mario was concerned last night, but we saw his buddy and classmate since grade one at the classroom door - sick! - and so some stress have been alleviated already. He even indulged me with a high-five as I headed out the door - more than Toad granted me, I'd had to be content with a wave from him... come to think of it, I waved, I don't think he waved back! 

The house seems empty now.... the most wonderful time of the year - I think not!

I'll tell you who does think so though - the cat. The house is child-free and she is LOVIN' it ;-)

  1. Haha. My cat and dog are sleeping away, trying to take advantage of the quiet while they can I guess. Good to hear the first day went off reasonably well, despite the early start. Here's wishing the whole family a great school year.
