Grade 1 & 3

The dudes returned to school on monday and I’ll try to give you an impression of how this went @ 7.00 mondaymorning.

Colin yelling from his room; Daddy where’s mommy ? (I was out for dinner the night before)
Me: Daddy’s @ work, Mommy is here.
Colin; Oh ok, hi mommy.
Me; Do you know what kind of day this is Colin ?
Colin; Is it school day today ?
Me; Yes it is.
Colin; Jiiiiiiiiiiiiiiipppppppppppppppppiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee (arms in the air) I’m going to school.

And for the next 45 min. he was jumping up and down screaming “who let the dogs in” LOL.

Michael was still asleep….
Me; Michael wake up sweetie !
Michael; Hhhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmpfffffffffffff.
Me; opening the curtains, come on wake up. aaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhpffffffffffff.
(By this time Colin was already dressed, I had to look twice I was so surprised.)
Come on Michael wake up !
Michael; PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFfffffffffff….
Me from the bathroom; Michael I am going into the shower, and if you’re not up and dressed by the time I come out you will be going to bed earlier tonight, obviously you are going to bed tooo late if you cannot manage to get out now (he gets to go 15 – 30 min. later than his brother) .

And before I was even out of the shower, there he was with me still in the shower but fully dressed 🙂

Some random stuff they said before, during & after school
The teacher sure reads slowly, i kept having to go back to page 1 and 2 ……
If the teacher says a bad word I will tell you and daddy about it !
I only have to learn how to write in a pretty way, I don’t have to learn anything else.
Is it time for our lunchbreak yet ?
I like grade 3 better than grade 2 !
When are we allowed to go to bed ?
What are we going to do now ? Is it lunchtime or are the mommies outside ?

So now you’re totally in the loop on the boys getting back into their routine, now me hmmm different story ………… How are you getting back into the swing of things after the summer ?

    Love what they said… about waking up, getting to sleep is a problem here… waking up too. I am having a sloooooooow start 😉
    Did anyone ever tell you that it looks like you made one of the boys and Ed made the other?

    My routine is the same as the past holidaytime LOL with a little fella that won’t be going to school for about another two years 😉

    I love such conversations. It would be great to scrap these stories. My oldest girl will also go to grade 3. One more week to go. She is sooooo looking forward to it. The youngest one is in grade 1. She started school in January. The pics are great. Looking forward to see a LO with these pictures.
