What I’ve learned from kindergarten

  • Green paint doesn’t come out of new school clothes, even after being soaked in bleach overnight.
  • 7:45am comes really fast when you’re trying to get three kids and a mom out the door.
  • Kids are good at spreading germs.
  • Sick days can be a blessing in disguise.
  • 4 hours actually go pretty fast.
  • Late-night blogging quickly falls by the way side when the alarm is set for 6:30 am.
  • Moms can get a lot more done in the morning when everyone is ready shortly after dawn.
  • Little brothers and sisters get more attention from mom when the kid-count is reduced to two.
  • Little brothers and sisters push each others’ buttons more often when big sister isn’t around to mediate.
  • Teachers are better at explaining how to form “s”s than mommies are.
  • Kindergartners aren’t very good at rehearsing the details of their day.
  • 20 minutes isn’t nearly long enough to eat lunch when mama isn’t there to prod.
  • Mommies can survive for a few hours each day without all their babies at home.

Ha ha! This is all so true. I especially love the bit about only having 20 minutes to eat. I swear I have the two slowest eaters in my house.

The teacher needs to put sunlight dish detergent in the paint pot. Like 2 tablespoons per pot. Stir it up. Paints just like normal and...washes out like a dream!
