Preschooler D and I played a lot of Wii Lego Pirates of the Caribbean while he has not feeling well. A lot. We finished the regular game. Now we have to go back and tackle the bonus features. I’ve had a really good time playing Wii Lego Pirates, and to be honest (because I always am with you), I let him play more than a preschooler probably should. I may have encouraged it. There was something just so satisfying about flinging my cartoon sword around and — well — hanging out with D.
Kindergarten round up is next month. I have a very sneaky suspicion that I am going to be what one local kindergarten teacher labeled “the Criers.” She said the number one goal of a kindergarten teacher was to get the Criers out of the room so their children wouldn’t also freak out.
Do you think that will be me, or do you think I will have pulled it together by that time?
I was having a small mid-life crises when I found out I was pregnant with D. I didn’t know what to do with myself. My career in weekly newspapers had come to an end and I didn’t know what I was going to do with myself. Since then I have discovered I make a pretty good career Stay-At-Home Mom. I see no reason for me to change careers at this point, but it will be an adjustment.
Am I writing about this every other day now? I feel like I have said most of this before. It probably won’t be the last time. You have my permission to skip these days in the future. I don’t think I am done obsessing about it. I’ll try to remember to label them “More Working Through Kindergarten Issues.”
