As stated in a precious post, the Princess likes to buy her lunches.  This past week she decided to try something she had not really had before.  Everyday when she gets home I ask her how was school, what did you have for lunch and did anyone get a yellow fish.  Well, we were changing and she told me “mommy, you know they put gravy on that raspberry steak and the potatoes- it was yummy!”  I had to tell her she ate Salisbury steak and not raspberry!

Wow!  I did not realize how far behind I was until someone pointed it out!!

The first day of school went well, with the exception of the death of “blue” the fish on the first day!!  After school we went to get a new Betta and also a frog- the frog has since passed away too.

Mommy cried (did not let Jenna see that!) then mommy consoled herself by dropping a big mint at Best Buy.  I got us a brand new top of the line video camera.  If you have ever seen my You Tube videos you will see the other “digital” recorder we had stunk!!  It clicks while recording and you must have tons and tons of lighting or you see shawdows only.  I still have to fully figure it out, but I will do that this week since she is cheering in the Homecoming half time show!  And will be in the parade the night before.

She loves to buy her lunch instead of packing.  I have no idea why, I loathed school lunches.  She has cheer practice on Tue/Thurs and games on Saturdays.  Dance is Monday evening.  SPARK (a physical fitness program) is now starting this week and is Tues-Thurs until 4:45 right after school.   This should make cheer practice nights very interesting!  And it’s not like we live where we can run through a drive-thru all the time.  I guess I will have to figure out what dinner works best to eat and be back out the door in 1/2 hour!!  PB&J everyone??

Here are photos of her first day.

So, tonight was Kindergarten orientation.  Needless to say on Friday J and I will be going through a whole pile of paperwork.  Between school, Y-care that I Will use on early dismissal days, cheerleading papers, dance papers, learn about lunch and decorate a fish which require me to drag my big scrapbook tote out!  Anyhow, I was watching her sit up front on the floor with her classmates and got misty.  I cannot even wrap my head around how we can be in school now!!  So, Princess J requested something to eat afterwards so we headed to the McD’s drivethru (yes, it was a bad parenting night LOL) while I went through the envelope of papers Miss Wagner gave us.  The last thing she included was a poem.  Basically telling us while we are crying she will be taking care of our children and loving them like her own.  I bawled.  Worst of all, my friend Carla, whose son is starting also (Jenna’s best guy) is a teacher so she cannot be there!  I am meeting a couple friends for lunch that day so I will have a couple hours to keep myself busy before I go pick her up.  She was excited after seeing her room and meeting her teacher but it just made it too much more real for momma.  *sigh*
