First Full Week of School

Hubby is in Brazil, which means I had to call in a favor to find babysitting for Back to School Night last night. The father of one of Thing 1's friends babysat his two and my two while the other mom and I got to hear about the new school lunch program, the upcoming schedule change, and the first of many fundraisers before we went to talk to the teachers, and listen to them outline their program for the year. I'm just glad I didn't have to pay a sitter for that.

Thing 1 and 2 have been holding hands while they walk in and out of the school. Not always, but often enough for several other parents to notice and comment to me how sweet it is. So today I got out their new shirts from Orlando. We didn't go to the Universal Studios Park, but we went to the Universal Airport Shop.

They were holding hands again, walking with their heads together as they came up the stairs. They were planning their afternoon; Fridays there isn't usually homework, and Club Penguin has a new Fair or something starting today. They have been looking forward to this for a while. Several parents "Aaahhhh"ed at me. They were awfully cute. I made them pose.

We have no big Labor Day plans as Hubby doesn't get back until tomorrow afternoon. All the good camping spots will be taken... not that that matters to us, as he's not really a camper. I don't know what, if anything, will happen this weekend. He's been too busy to put in any ideas. Mine usually run on the cheap side, like "Go to my parents' house and let them babysit while we have a REAL DATE! Maybe a Double Date with my sister and bro-in-law." I'm just a bundle of fun.


  1. Those girls are SO cute! They look like such clever little "things"! :-) Love the t-shirts...


  2. I'd be one of those moms giving you the "That's so sweet!" comment. My two older kids usually have their arms around each other, too. Of course, they're trying to wrestle each other to the ground...


I'd love to hear from you! YES, YOU!
