I get the fingerprinting, the password through me. Must be a lot of divorced families, or angry grandparents???

Would you cut yourself some slack woman.

If it's anything like my surgery, I have to be there @ 5:15am. UGH!

I get the fingerprinting, but a password?

You would be blown away by the way our school announces the teachers each kid has.

I need to stop reading these Kindergarten posts. I'm about to start crying and school hasn't even started yet!

August 24, 2010 at 8:51 AM  
Blogger Renegades said...

I cried as I walked away from the school and mine (blush) are in the 3rd and 4th grade. I wouldn't want to do the kindergarten drop off again unless it would bring back more time with them.

Um, I save passwords all the time...only to forget where I save them. You're not alone!

Definitely cut yourself some slack! You deserve a break!

I always forget where I've kept my passwords. It's always somewhere that should be obvious. But then again, I think I have early Alzehimer's.

Whose blog is this? :)

I totally forgot about all of the other post-its once I got to the last one. It's so true. I just tweeted something like that in the #PPDChat I participated in yesterday. Just cut yourself some slack, because you know what? You (WE!) deserve it. {Hugs}

It's almost a little sad that they have to fingerprint now to keep kids safe, but I guess whatever works best...

Aww, I love how he wakes you up. How cute! My oldest used to say "mommy we can get up b/c it's good morning day time"

I hope the first day of kindergarten goes well! I am sure he will love it

OMG, I totally love the part about reading setting an example for the kids, not that you're ignoring them!! It's the truth, isn't it?? I'm just being a good role model when I can barely tear myself away from a good book to play another game of Candyland, right?

Can you believe Tim had the nerve to be gone on a business trip on Garrett and Landon's first day of preschool? I was so angry...it was pure chaos trying to get all the kids ready by myself and then get them all dropped off at their schools on time...praying that no one cried or had a hard time, including myself. Thankfully it went well but still...

Hang in there girl! You should take the mean inner girl 40 day challenge with Jenn and I. It starts tomorrow. Let me know if you want the info.

I am #1 in being hard on myself. You are a great mom! So is Mockingjay a book in a series? I have never heard of it.

Yes as the others said, seriously a password to pick up your own kid? That is insane. When Alex wakes up she likes to say "wake up it's morning". And open all of the blinds to prove she is right

Sounds like you're stressing! It will be ok, take a deep breath. Cause "mommy, I see the day". That is just too cute!

Your little guy will LOVE Kindergarten, he's just trying to show you he's a big boy and doesn't want you to worry.
