Fun School Days

MENTAL STATUS: "Excited". I might have some good news to share soon. (HA! How's that for a teaser?) And the Red Sox have won their first two games!

SVEN TALLY: I still don't have one. But I will by this afternoon. Everything is going into the computer today.

I've been volunteering at my daughter's kindergarten now. Yes, I'm an official room mom. And apparently quite a popular one, too. They really like me. It's cute. I feel like a celebrity when I come in. (As you can see, I need to get out a little more.)

Anyhew, I'll share a cute story with you that I already shared with my writer's forum of my first day as "room mom".


Little boy in kindergarten (we'll call him Fred): Looking at me intently. "How old are you?"
Me: Surprised. "What did you say?"
Fred: "Uh, nothing." Goes back to drawing.
Me: Smiling now. "Fred, did you just ask me how old I was?"
Fred: "Yeah."
Me: "Well, older than you. How old do you think I am?"
Fred: Staring at me and taking almost a full minute to think about. "16".
Me: "Close enough."


Have a great weekend!

That's funny. My 3 year old thinks everyone is 14.

That's so funny! Our 5 year old niece knows everyone's ages, but when it comes to me she always says something like 26. I think she knows I'm the buyer of presents.

Yeah. What tempest said!

That's twice you've teased me with this good news.

Go on already. Spill, girl!

he he, now you've been called 16 & girl. I feel a bout of youthful silliness coming on.

Fred gets a prize!

My oldest has referred to me as "older than dirt" since he was a tiny tot. And his age hypothesis gets worse every year. I'm not sure he knows how old I really am.

No teasers allowed! Spill!
