Obligatory Kid Post

First day of school!


Evil Baby Who Refuses to Nap and Is Hell on Two Chubby Feet screams: "Let's GO Mom!"


First day of third grade!

For poops and grins, here's the obligatory first day of second grade from almost exactly a year ago.


Shoot, he got tall!

We watched all the Soprano Moms and Jersey Shore 10 Year Reunion Dads (they're fat and orange tan--so fast forward the cast of Jersey Shore 10 years) walk their kids into school.

I lined up with Chunky his first year of "real" school back when he was in first grade, but the past two years I've just dropped him off like it was any normal school day.

None of that schmaltzy stuff.


Watch out world! Here he comes!

Go Chunky! He does look taller between the two photos.

Kids there in Jersey really start back to school late! My kids started back August 24th. Catholic schools here in the Cleveland area go back earlier than the public schools though. Some of the public schools didn't start back until September 1st. They get out later too though, so I think it comes out to about the same number of school days.

I can't believe Moochie is talking already - wow!

Just reminiscing 'bout first days....I was the kid consoling the crying girl...and super excited about finally being in school...while my housemate was the crying kid...who hated school from day one. One of us has a graduate degree...hmmm, who could that be...

First of all, that Moochie rushing you is hilarious especially since you got him mid-scream.

Chunky did get tall! Wow! Yeah, we didn't do anything weirdly special for Pi's first day either. Excapt, she is now allowed to walk by herself! She loves it even though it scares the everything out of me.

Time passes so quickly, look at those tiny babies all grown up! Chunky is chunky no more, that's for sure. One of the happiest days of my life was about three weeks ago when my boys both started back to the same school (at last!!!). No tears here either.

Chunky didn't just grow taller, he's growing up. He looks older and really cool in that shirt.

I love the excitement of the First Day. I remember how much I liked all my college classes that first day/week. It was all downhill after that.

I actually went with my little guy to the first day of 4th grade this year, but only because it was a new school to him. I wanted to make sure he found the right line out on the blacktop. I couldn't believe how many parents were there with cameras and not just for the kindergartners. I feel like such a slacker mom compared to them.

Chunky sure did get a lot taller and just more mature-looking in general. It happens so fast.
