Pack your backpacks

Today is the first day of school in our little town. I took the morning off from work to stay home to take the Girl Child down to the bus stop to wait for the school bus. She's very excited about starting first grade. Even though she had a bath last night, she asked to take a shower with me this morning so she would be sparkling clean for her first day. She was, to her credit, amused when I smeared my shaving cream all over her back.

While we waited for the bus, I unclipped the hair brush she keeps on her back pack and I brushed her hair. Stroke after stroke, taking out the knots she missed, making her hair gleam in the morning sunlight, making her hair soft and pretty. I clipped the brush back on her pack as the bus came up the road, collected my kiss, and sent her on her way.

First grade. Where does the time go?

Ha! Just you wait, my friend - my eldest gel just got her first training bra. And I'd swear I just stopped changing her diapers a couple weeks ago!

My oldest starts his first day on the 7th, he's excited, but a bit scared. They had a bus safety course last night for them, he cried a bit and said he didn't want to go on the bus but by the end he was going by himself.

When they started talking about 'The Danger Zone' I don't know who it was more scary for, him or me. :)

Think how boring it would be if time stood still, though. :)
