First Grader


The bus stop is the same as last year, although it seems that only TPT and 2 other kids are at the bus stop. One of the other kids is starting kindergarten today and had no intention of getting on that &^%$*#-ing bus. She bolted twice. Her mom wasn't able to carry her on the bus and her older brother (2nd grade) wasn't able to cajole her. So the shrieking kindergartener was driven to school. We'll see what happens with her tomorrow. TPT, on the other hand, hopped right on the bus and happily went off to school.

I can't believe that I have a kid in first grade. I swear she was just a baby shrieking in her crib just a couple of weeks ago. Now she's in first grade. How did that happen? College is just around the corner, I guess.

ThePinkThing, may you have fun and learn lots this year.

Correct. I am WAY TOO YOUNG to have kids in college.

Shut up. I am.

That brings back memories. They grow up so fast.

Sigh.

You are, I think, one year older than I am, so you are definitely too young for kids in college. Come to think of it, when my mother was 43, I was a freshman in college... O.O

My Mum was only 40 when I started university!

Shut up, Christine. I'll be 54 (I think) when TPT starts college.

Brother -- I suspect both you and Donny will be REQUIRED to attend, by the person in question.

S'ok. I have a son about to start his second year at university and there is NO WAY I'm old enough for that to be true.

Yay first grade. :) The neighbor kid I occasionally play with started first grade this year too. She was scared until she got there, then it turned out like I said - just like kindergarten. ;)
