Are You Reelin' in the Years, Stowin' Away the Time?

It's back to the daily grind in our home.

I went to the dentist this morning to make my pearly whites pearlier. This afternoon I took Griffin to his preschool for a get-acquainted-party. School starts Tuesday.


I typically have the attitude of Sweet Baby Jesus, Thank you for it being back to school time, but when Steely Dan came on the radio, I got a little misty eyed.

Stupid fucking Steely Dan.

Never nind misty - eyed, bleary-eyed is more like it round here. I'm convinced we're never going to make it out of the house in time.

Ooohhh - pre-school! We start on Tuesday too, but it's not like we ever really stopped. So much for summer vacation.

And now I've got Reelin' in the Years stuck in my head. I wonder if there's any Steely Dan on our music server.....

Take solice in knowing those sweet pre-schoolers grow into teenagers and you'll throw a party when school starts.

I hope you get back to normal and don't get sad about pre-school! I'm counting down the days until Tues when Jack goes back to Kindergarten and Mason goes to pre-school.

Yeah, Back to School brings tears to my eyes as well. Because I was always so freaking grateful.

Is this his first year of pre-school? After a good cry I hope you enjoy the break, and he enjoys his adventure.

Steely Dan makes me think of my own childhood. Oh crap, now I'm getting all teary eyed!

SD is one of my favorite bands.
Saw them in concert about 10 years ago in Florida, and the power went out during Peg! But we all sat and waited and it returned, and they finished the song.

We'll be doing a parent's-day-out program this year, so I'm already getting a little misty about that. And it's only one day a week -- supposedly to help me de-stress. So why is it causing me stress? Have you guys done preschool before this year?

I am crackin myself up! I thought it was Stow'in away the tide.
LOL, like that ever made any sense.

I almost started to cry walking into Lu's second grade classroom and meeting his teacher. 2nd GRADE for crying out loud! Hopefully I will have this figured out by the time he enters highschool. :)

Damn that Steely Dan. I know you'll enjoy your new schedule as soon as that twinge dies down!

Awwww...mine start preschool on Wed. Im trying not to get too excited and just enjoy the last few days of summer. But I almost pee in my pants thinking about 3 full days a week with just one munchkin who still takes a LONG nap....wooohooo!

I've got the same schizophrenic feeling... can't wait for school/don't want them to grow up.

It's the same when I'm away from them. Love the time/hate the time.

They don't tell you this in the pregnancy/childcare books!

Oh STeely Dan, you sappy band you.
I can't even think of booting my kiddo of to school or I start hyperventilating sooooo I'm no help here. I hope you all get in the swing of things without too many tears.

Are you getting your teefers bleached? Sure am nosey aren't I?

Cathy said...

Damn Steely Dan for turning a happy occassion into a bitter sweet sad one! But I have a feeling you will be ok with it;)

Awwww.. I still remember making an "apple" name badge for my stepson when he started kindergarten, and I pinned it on just like you did. That was a long time ago :-) Thanks for letting me remember!
