Back To School Snapshots

Sort of like Iraq and Iran, the Sunni and the Shiite, and Bill Lee and Craig Nettles at a MLB reunion. Peace, but tenuous at best.

Trot, with pants way too big for his body and in desperate need of a haircut 10 minutes before he invades pre-school. In a miracle not seen since the one on 34th street, he's been good the whole time, his teachers love him, and no bodily function has taken place outside the bathroom in the first 2 weeks.

The hammer is gonna drop soon; I just don't know when. So far, school and discipline are agreeing with my 3 year old maniac and if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Although I keep waiting for that one phone call describing mayhem and carnage, so far? So good.

One upside to all this? Trot is so worn out by the end of the day he fell asleep on page 3 of the "Frog Prince" which allowed me to finish at my own pace and only have to make sure one kid brushed his teeth tonight.

It's a little thing but I take my victories where I can.

7-7 headed into the top of the ninth.

I've got a sinking feeling I've got a REALLY long night ahead of me.

A bases loaded walk on strike three to Greenie to tie, and a basehit RBI from AGon to win it meant you could get to bed more or less on time. Bet you couldn't sleep though! Felt like October baseball.

Great news about Trot. Here's hoping he brings that behaviour home.

Aw, great photos! Ciera looks so grown up - which I know you love! :)

John, you were spot on. I couldn't go to sleep. But it was great! And Beth, I'j one step away from locking her in her room for the next ten years.

If you weren't tired before the game, you sure were after. Just be glad you're not a Patriots fan too. Twice in one week will darn near end your life.

I'm thinking Trot's holding out on you at home. Just for fun. ;-) He looks like he would fit inside his backpack! Ha!!

Trot is just trying to make a liar out of you. :) Of course, John and I have seen him live and in person and can back up your stories!

BTW, after what I saw at the store today, you better give Ang a BIG hug when you get home tonight. :)

Dawn, luckily I'm a 'Skins fan and there hasn't been any such drama in a while. They just stink right now. And don't give him any ideas on the backpack. ;)

Stacy, you just caught us at a slow time. ;)
