I Have No Heart. I'll Live.

I keep reading blogs about how upset mommies are when they drop their babies off for the first day of school. Upset? Why?!?! Are you friggin' kidding me? That's like 8 hours or something without the kids at home. 8 hours of peace. 8 hours without wiping a butt. 8 hours without nuking a corndog. Do you know how many laws I would break to have my kids gone for 8 hours? Several, okay? I'd be at the school with Asher like the Chinese and their gymnasts - "I swear he's 5, he's small for his age! For the love of God, just let him come to school!" Yes, I realize it's possible I might feel differently next year when the time comes to send Aidan off to Kindergarten. It's also possible monkeys might fly out of my butt. I'm not sure which is more likely.

LOL! You crack me up!! I was sad a little last year on his first day of kindergarten...but i quickly got over it. I think i was probably more excited than him to start first grade!

I am with you. I am so jealous about mommies who have kids in school. I can't wait until mine start. WTF, sad? no, happy dance here.

From the sound of it I'd bet on the Monkey routine - although I wouldn't want to be there to see it happen.

This totally made me laugh! I dropped my son off at his first day of preschool yesterday and couldn't run out of there fast enough. All the other mamas were taking pictures, videotaping, watching from a corner with tears in their eyes...

I was like, see ya suckers!
