It’s Friday! Jacob is loving full day kindergarten. He comes home with all his class work and is so proud of himself. He is exhausted by the time we get home, however. It’s been an adjustment. But he does love it. In fact, when the kids had off (yes, that’s right three days off after going to school for a week!) for literacy testing, he was so upset. He couldn’t figure out why they could just test them during the day.
None of my kids have ever been criers. You know, the kids who are screaming for their mamas or dads at the beginning of the day. While I am so glad they never have been and feel for the parents who have to go through all that, it still tugs a little that none of them have ever missed me. I do get a hug from each of them when they leave and a hug when we meet again at the end of the day. This is what I get instead…This cute little stinker just unloads his stuff right in the middle of where ever he feels…Typically right in the middle of the kitchen, right in the way of the bathroom which everyone seems to need to use as soon as we get in the door. But he is so excited about telling me about his day and I’m way too excited to suck up all his attention. How am I supposed to tell him to stop a sec and move away from the door?Would you be able to do it? Yeah, me neither.
