new beginnings

This is our 6-year-old girl the morning of her first day of elementary school.  She started the 1st grade at a local public school last Monday.

And this is her little sister, giving the world a shit-eating grin that says, “I don’t start back to preschool ’til after Labor Day, bitches!”

And this is her little sister saying, “Did you hear that?  I don’t go back to school until AFTER LABOR DAY!  And Mommy will push my ass a mile each way as we walk my 6-year-old sister to school every day!  Then she’ll drive my brother to his preschool whilst I sit in the car and sing or eat crackers all morning while remaining in my footie pajamas for HOURS because I DON’T GIVE A DAMN!”

    She does work hard, though, even if school hasn’t started yet. For example, she’s in training for her new school schedule, so she’s been taking an earlier nap to get more rest. So that’s challenging for her. More sleep, all the toys to herself, footie pajamas.

    She’s living the dream, who am I kidding?
