A Day In The Life

Today is kindergarten registration for T. He seems a little apprehensive, but that's my T. He's the most shy of the Schmitty children, though he probably is the most "popular". People just take to him. Kids, I've noticed, seem to flock to him. He's just got that natural attraction. You know, there's just something about him.

I reminded him yesterday that we would be going to the school to sign him up. I informed him and his sister that we'd have some errands to run. The registration to start, then to the school's administration building, which is across town. There I will be turning in R.'s registration papers for Preschool.

Our elementary school has a Preschool for children that have special needs, ranging from severe to minor, such as speech therapy. The Preschool also accepts applications for other resident children with no special needs. There is a limited space for other resident children and they are chosen by lottery. I'm hoping R. gets chosen. It will be great to have her and her brother begin the same school together. It will be a lot easier for me. The kids will be in two schools, not three. It will also elevate some of the financial burden as this is free compared to the Montessori Academy she will attend if not picked.

After we drop off her papers, we will need to go grocery shopping. R. said we needed milk. Of course we do. We go through at least two gallons every three days, we ALWAYS need milk. I told R. that we should buy our own cow instead. She then told me that cow's "pee" milk. Oh YUM!

I told them if we had time, we would then go to borough hall to get Ruby's dog license. T.'s eyes bugged out and he exclaimed, "Then she'll be able to drive a car?!"

Ahhhh....the stories he'll tell in kindergarten!

Remind T that a dog’s car insurance rate is WAY higher than Mom’s due to the fact they have difficulties in the grabbing the steering wheel department. T will need to get a second job to cover the cost.

EVERY time I go to the store I buy a gallon of milk. I do not have to even ask myself if we need one. So essentially Wal-Mart has a $4.50 cover charge....

My son went to a preschool like that. He was there for speech/language reasons.
A couple of the parents of "typical" children liked to remind me often that their children had no problems and were only in the program to be a positive example. It used to piss me off. Don't be that parent;)
