Okay, I came into the conversation late, but congratulations on your daughters kindergarten achievements! Yes, they do grow up amazingly fast! It seems just yesterday my oldest was wearing her cute little kindergarten cardboard grad cap, and last week she started her first job...*sigh, sob, wipe my eyes*. I hate to sound like a cliche, but too bad I'm going to say it anyways...enjoy every moment, every laugh, every tear, and yes even the arguments!!! Yeah, graduations, summers almost here!

Kindergarten is what first grade used to be ... what we think of first grade.

Mid-year Chrysta came home with multiplication tables... that SCARED ME!
They expect the kids to come into 1st grade reading and writing legibly. Its been a rough year for me... There have been times when I just sat in shock at the projects she brought home.


Not only is it honor roll, but Kindergarten is now part of the 'permanent' record. I was in freakin shock. I think its alot of stress to put on a kid and to be honest the parents too!

It scares the hell out of me what these little tiny people are expected to know at such a young age now! Sure, mine was early learning the alphabet (both by sight and saying it....although NOBODY told me not to teach capital letters first....opps) and numbers but she's since kinda stopped learning in that way. Most of it she just picked up herself.....I just nudged her along when needed. (who says TV isn't educational :)) She can sort of write her name but you have to know it to have a clue what it says :) MULTIPLICATION TABLES???? I can't get mine to poop on the potty yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (she plays a mean air guitar though and knows most of the Disney characters....priorities ya know :D)

What ever happened to little kids getting to be little kids? What's the hurry?

LOL yeah well Angelspeak, I get that TOO! My daughter is 13!! I imagine we'll have a pouting session tonight, because I let her go to a concert last night with a friend and spend the night at her house. Tonight Scott and I and some friends are going to the movies.....I will need Kayla to babysit. She's gonna wanna go to this end of school party, thing is there is one tonight AND one tomorrow night. I'm gonna let her go to the one tommorrow night, but tonight is MY night!!

Oh yeah! And my personal favorite....."What are you doing"? This is asked at least 4,000,000 times a day. Even when I'm eating, watching TV, playing with her etc. So I make up really crazy answers just to play with her head :D She usually catches me though. She knows I'm not Handgliding in Austrailia when I'm eating lunch :)

A conversation yesterday out of the blue: (caution BOOBIES mentioned :lol:)

"where are Mommy's boobies"?
"My boobies"??????
"Mommy's boobies"
"Ahhh right here"
"Oh, ok......(my camera was sitting near here) Can 'wivia (Olivia) take a picture of Mommy's boobies"
"Ahhh no I don't think so......we don't want a picture of Mommy's boobies"!!!

Yeah I know it's coming. On the plus side a 15 yr old will be able to appreciate my sarcasim much better than a 3 yr old :D I think I need to start saving now for my kids therapy.
