Of Nerd Glasses and Gremlins...
The first day of school...I'd love to post pictures...but I have none! Why?! Because my youngest...my baby...now in 7th grade has to wear a uniform along with my 8th grader. Now please, understand, it's not like a "cool" uniform for a private school. No, according to my sweet daughter they were "Nerd Clothes." Everyone in the school looks EXACTLY the same. I don't know what the problem is, but she has declared she looks like a nerd. So, this morning, being the tactful mother I am, as we were walking to our car I pretended to get all teary eyed and she looked at me.
"Oh, look how sweet my little nerd children look," I sniffed. She was fairly unamused. I'm sure a comment will arise here soon when she reads what I wrote.
As for me, Work is great and I am learning soooo much!!!! It keeps me busy and waking up at the break of dawn to get my kids out of bed and ready for school. I will note that unfortunately with my training schedule the way it is I only see my children for 45 minutes in the morning as I wake them and drop them off..I'm not liking it!!! I can't wait for the weekend to give them the love I want to give them!!! However, on facebook it has been brought up that I am morphing from the cute little cuddly Gizmo to the wildly outlandish Stripes. Seriously, the fact I remember these characters names from this movie is amazing to me as my brain feels like goo. However, this morning a new face greeted me at the mirror...much closer to the scaly green guy than being cute and cuddly. I guess 5 hours a sleep each night does that to a person. Boy, I can't wait until seminary starts next week. THAT means I can now get up earlier!!! If only I believed in drinking energy drinks!!!I do have to add that I am so truly thankful for my children. If they weren't such good kids this wouldn't work. They are my heroes...perhaps someday they'll think up a magic potion to push the scales away and my cute self will come back.
