|Off to Pre K and 2nd Grade|
One of the G kids is entering last year of preschool, one in Kindergarten, one in first grade and one in second grade. They go the three different schools and so we will have a lot of school programs and Grandma's Days to attend. We LOVE it. Thanks to our kids for living close enough for us to participate in everything. We are grateful.
The start of the school year will also mean the start of sports and dance and other activities. I saw "Bad Moms" recently with my cousin. There is a real message about being the "perfect Mom" and the Moms who have their kids in fourteen activities and do their school projects for the kids. The message is that it is okay to not have them in all those activities and NOT to do their projects for them.
|First Day of Kindergarten and First Grade|
Last year I went to one of the kids' school projects day, kind of like our old fashioned science fair, but it was not about science, just projects that were displayed at school. I looked around the room and realized that 90% of the projects were made by the Moms or Dads. Kids in the early primary grades can not make perfect art projects. It was kinda sad.
If you go see "Bad Moms" there are many songs that your G kids sing. This one reminds me of the kids and their dancing and singing obsession. It is all good.
"Shut Up and Dance" by Walk the Moon
"Just keep your eyes on me
I said you're holding back
She said shut up and dance with me
This woman is my destiny
She said oh oh oh
Shut up and dance"
