We've entered into a new phase of parenthood, having two kids in school. Now it's only a few days a week, a few hours a week, but it's a start. The start, to more than a decade of schooling for them.
Miles has only been 2 days, and he has already declared that "school is a little bit stupid". While we have had no breakdowns during the checking in and out of preschool, when he is away from there, he expresses his desire not to go back. I guess that means I need to have a conversation with his teacher.
Elijah started Kindergarten, and he seems to really like Mr. Candelarie. But his start to school hasn't been uneventful, I got a call from the school nurse on his 3rd day of school. He's fine, and it added a humorous anecdote to Mr. Candelarie's memoirs (so he told me).
Meanwhile, I spent my free time on Monday going to the gym and taking my sweet time strolling down the aisles of Target in quiet. Reading as many labels as I wanted, not having to visit the toy section, and just moving along at a slow pace. It was lovely!
