There were several looks today.
1. Today we did a “dry run” for kindergarten. I figure we’ll do it a couple times next week, so Conner gets into a bit of a groove. He’s our first schooler, so we gotta get into a groove. Conner went and had a look into his classroom. I can tell he is REALLY excited after looking at his classroom. I’m not toally sure which one is his, but both were all set-up ready for the little kiddies. He also played on the playground.
2. After the school we went to the grocery store. I was losing it while trying to find milk with a decent expiration date with incessant whining and talking from both children. I looked at Conner, and gave the proverbial “I AM GOING TO LOSE IT” lecture. The stock-boy came by and gave me a “look.” And I looked at him and thought he’d cursed himself for parenthood, poor guy. Never think ill of parents, that will be you one day.
3. I had a look of astonishment when, like a fool, I decided to go to ONE MORE grocery store after visiting Drew at school (each had different, good, sales). The kids were SO good. We had a little “who’s gonna be good in the store” cheer prior, and bribes were promised for the appropriate behavior. They came through, even Spencer — I was very impressed.
ON a sadder note, O’Connor called and I, like a fool, am going to work tonight. I sure do like money. Isn’t there a commandment I’m breaking somewhere?
