Ready or not, today was kindergarten orientation. Ready? NOT! For many reasons I wanted to skip this today, not the least of which is that I still have a hard time facing that a new day has started without my mom here. But, this would have been a tough day anyway - as DD2 is ready to be a kindergartner. I? Am SO not ready to have my baby be that old. How is it possible that she is already of that age? She is my baby! But go we did, and while the parents met in the media center this morning, the future kindys of America went to the kindergarten room to do whatever it is they do. Afterwards she told me, "It wasn't fun, and I didn't talk." What??? I'm thinking that the teacher will NEVER believe that this child has the same parents as DD1... who never stops talking, will participate until they convince her that other children need a turn, and thinks that school is the most fun thing in the world aside from Disneyland. To say they are different in every way is an understatement.
I did find out today, however, that she will not be doing kindy enrichment next year. (They are loaded to the gills with full time enrichment students, so no part time kids will be accepted. This is the first time in the history of kindy enrichment at our school that this has happened.) I like to think that God gave me this gift, because now I have a reason to keep her with a little bit longer every day for another year.
I wonder if God knew I'd need this so very much? Because it's not feeling like much of a coincidence right now.
