Back To School...{I like your beard}

It's official...

I am the mom of a high school student. Manga Dork got on the bus and was officially a FRESHMAN! Hope she has a good day.

I also took Wild Child and her huge pink cast to kindergarten. Oh...you are wondering why no photos! Ask my Blogger Photo Uploader doohickey...can't get them to upload. Argh.

Here is the conversation on the way to school with Wild Child...

Scrappy: Now you realize you have to stay ALL day.
WC: yes, mom. You told me already.
Scrappy: That means you will be eating breakfast, lunch, and snack at school. That's a long time.
WC: I know mom.
Scrappy: Ooh here's our song...{turns up radio}
Scrappy and WC: I'm makin' those desperate calls...your love...your love...your love...like a lovesick crackhead...your love...your love...your love...is.my.drug....I like your beard.
WC: That is so funny...giggle giggle
Scrappy: So you know you have to stay aaaallllllllllll day...like Manga Dork does...
WC: Yes, mom you told me already. {I am sure you could insert some eye rolling here}

We got to school and went to the gym {in the stupid wheelchair}. I just about lost it when I rolled her in to the gym and her classmates were all sitting in the floor. My baby was in a stupid wheelchair with a huge bright pink cast...not.a.great.moment. Wild Child pulled me down to her level and whispered, "I am not going to cry." I said, "Ok, you don't have to." I then realized she was looking around and let's just say some kids weren't taking it very well...yikes!

I kissed her on the forehead and headed to the car...no tears!...wait, what is that smell? Oh yuck! I had cut across the grass and stepped in dog poop! I went back home, told Dr. Hubby bye as he left for work, and climbed back in my bed with Cutie Patootie. We slept til 10:30...bliss.

Goodbye summer! Goodbye freedom!

Stupid blogger photo uploader doohickie!

Brave girl! Both you and wild child!! : )

Dang dog poop! Not what you needed today. Stupid wheelchair! Stupid poop! At least you got to go back to bed. The grandtwins started kindergarten today. They only go half day. That's almost harder cuz Rach just dropped 'em off and then had to pick 'em up again. You're definitely getting "old" when you have a kid in high school. I feel old because I have grandkids in K.
