Aubrey just got home from her first day of kindergarten and as we pulled into the driveway she said, “Momma, my legs are so tired I can’t walk one more step. Will you carry me?” I carried her and all of our stuff inside (it’s the first day, she can walk by herself tomorrow) and continued quizzing her about her day.
Aubrey: My teee–cher made me wear my shoes and socks ALL day. Her wouldn’t let me take them off!
Me: (Knowing how she likes to sleep in the buff, I was quite relieved that was all she tried to take off.)
She continued to tell us everything she did all day long, coloring, “learning the calender”, eating lunch in the lunchroom, eating a popsicle for snack time.
Me :Oh Aubrey, that sounds like so much fun! You get to do it again tomorrow!
Aubrey: TOMORROW? (Full volume whine!) I am SO tired, I don’t want to go back!!
Only thirteen more years to go….
