I'm organizing and labeling and drinking too much wine.
I feel like if I can just stay busy and organized then Thursday will arrive and everything will be fine.
I told everyone that today we'd be starting the new schedule and doing a dry run to the school. I need to know how long it will take so that we can make any necessary adjustments on the big day.
Apparently....I've stressed out my little boy because he didn't sleep last night and now I wonder if I should just let him sleep or continue with my schedule.
I had a big Going to School Dinner planned for Wednesday night but now I'm wondering if I should just keep it low key? He hasn't expressed any anxiety about school....until last night.
In one of the emails I've received from the Welcome Committee, it said that Alex needed to wear a name tag for the first week with his teachers name on it. I had this brillant idea to buy one of those plastic shields with the clip and print out his name tag on the computer.
I stood in Office Max for 30 minutes trying to decide what to do because you can't just buy ONE plastic thing and ONE clip. You have to buy packs of 10. This little idea was going to cost me $10. I walked around and I fretted and I called iKeith and he didn't answer. (he never answers)
Finally, I decided to do the iKeith test and asked myself if Keith would roll his eyes at me over this idea, decided that YES, he would so I put that stuff back and bought name tag stickers and a sharpie.
Mallory is very excited for Alex to start school! I think she's looking forward to having some time alone with me and has come up with some activities for us to do together. I have NO idea where she came up with these.
- Go to the mall and ride the Merry Go Round
- Go to coffee.
- Paint each other's nails?
- Do each other's hair.
- Have a pillow fight in our underwear.
- Go to Target and get coffee.
- Spend Daddy's money.
- Go to the library.
I am loving my new Cozi Calendar and App!
I went through the school calendar and put all of the important dates in...and all of my to-do lists are in one place and I can mark them off on my phone! You can set up a journal where you jot little notes about what's going on and then have your journal emailed in a newsletter format to family and friends.
This is going to make starting school so much easier!
Pray for us.....
