the collective awwwwww

As most kids in the world did, my baby girl went to school yesterday. It was her first day of kindergarten, and i'm pretty sure I was more nervous than she was. She was excited, but not jump out of your pants excited. I was. But that's probably because I know what lies ahead for her.In the years to come, she'll make friends, and enemies, love boys then hate boys, love a subject in class, and hate another subject.(I loved English class, and hated Math.... still do). SHE HAS NO IDEA. And it all starts with the first day of Kindergarten.

On my first day (picture this in either black and white, or sepia. I prefer sepia), the teacher told us all about stuff, like where the washrooms are, and where to sit on the carpet, that our parents hadn't abandoned us, and they'll be back in 3 hours. Then she asked if anyone has any questions. My hand shot up real fast, because I didn't want anyone else to ask my important question before I did. I was SO proud of my question. She turned and said "Oui Chantale?" (oh yeah, all french school) and I stood up and asked "Why is the sky blue" The whole class started laughing. Including the teacher (who's answer was something along the lines of "i don't know, but we'll learn a lot of other things this year") I was SO disappointed. I had to go home and look it up in the encyclopedia... well ask my mom to do it for me.

Now i'm no dummy (except in math. and just thinking about it is making me hyperventilate), so I know that EVERYONE thinks their kid is the cutest, and they are proud to show off pictures of their kids. I usually feel silly showing off my kids, because everyone does it and lots of people get annoyed . I saw on facebook yesterday an acquaintance talked about seeing too many back to school kid pics and said he'll come back tomorrow. I felt a sting.
BUT this is my blog! SO PLEASE, TO ENJOY! (after dropping off her sister, me and the Nana went to a new park.)
Diva's first day of Kindergarten
They still hold hands while walking to our elevator

Nana is a better climber than me!

LOOK at those eyes... i died


  1. LOVE the pictures!! Definitely keep 'em coming! I really don't understand people's issue with kid pictures on Facebook - it's a representation of our LIVES and most parent's consider their kids a big huge part of their lives, so...

    :stepping off soap box::

    Glad the first day went well!

  2. Oh, I KNOW! it's not like i enjoy seeing peoples pics of the dogs or cats, or vacation pics (I can't afford to go anywhere)!!
