This week has been a little cray.
Not going to lie, I think it was the universe’s way of making sure that I was just off kilter enough that I didn’t lose my shit when Finn went off and left me. I mean, yes, he’s only gone to kindergarten and yes, it’s only six hours a day, but dude the house is so quiet that it freaks me out.
Oh, and NOT ONE of you told me that taking him on the second day would be WAY harder than taking him on the first day because damn, it really settles in that MY BABY IS GOING TO SCHOOL now. Wake up Michelle, this is your new normal. There will be lunch packing and watching your child choosing his uniform and it’s all too much. I miss Thor and Hawkeye and Iron Man and the daily costume changes.
I had to turn on the TV which I never do during the day. I didn’t realize how much he talks and that little one, she just screams like the wild banshee that she is when she wants something. We’re going to need to work on that. Plus, she’s had a cold, the amount of snot descending from that tiny little nose is unreal.
But anyway, the weirdest start to a week ever...
It started off with President Obama driving past our house.
On Labor Day no less.
Which, ok… maybe some of you are Republicans or Libertarians, there may even be a few Green Party peeps in my readership. I get it, I wouldn’t have been thrilled to bits about seeing Bush either. But, for a five year old? Think of yourself as a little kid and the day before school starts for you, the President of the United States AND an entire motorcade of police vehicles and other official cars with lights going drove by your house. We also spotted a drone and helicopter, dude they aren’t messing on security. Plus, they block all traffic and then they drive like a bat outta hell.
It was pretty awesome, even Dave said so and he’s obviously not a Barack fan.
