I think I missed an important milestone last week that I really wanted to share with you. And I actually really did almost miss it.
Baby Doll had her first real day of kindergarten last Wednesday.
She was so excited and honestly, I think she had pretty much gone to bed when I discovered that the Dog Walker wasn't at all prepared for his last day of math class. He had a portfolio and a final report due. He hadn't written 3 essays and 4 Polya problems (I know, but it's some new math term...).
It was about 11:00 when I made this discovery and I assured him that we would stay up all night if need be to get him prepared.
It need be.
It was 6:15 AM before I finally dragged myself upstairs and I had been snoozing at my desk for at least a half an hour before that. The sun was actually coming up. The Dog Walker was OK because he didn't have to be at class until 2:00 PM. I was the one that was in trouble.
My sweetie woke up as I was brushing my teeth and I explained the situation and begged him to make sure he at least brought Baby Doll to me so I could give her a kiss and take a picture before he took the three elementary-aged kids to school. That's about all I was good for. (Check out all my boxes of wedding stuff in the background of that pic. It will be nice to get my bedroom back.)
I did get up by about 11:00 so I could pick her up from school, but honestly, I was dragging the entire day. I even begged out of my Cub Scout duties. When I was younger I could easily do the 24-hours without sleep thing, but I'm getting old, I guess. I need to sleep.
But it was worth it. The Dog Walker passed his very last math class!!!
