Griffin started back at school, this week. Second grade. Have mercy.
He went two half days, which were more like let's fuck up your days, parents, because the public school system isn't asshole enough. So two half days were enough for Griffin to beg to drop out and go to blacksmithing school.
I had to point out that they probably won't teach String Theory.
Griffin said second grade wouldn't either.
I was SERVED by a seven year old.
Darwin went to Kindergarten Orientation.
"Kindergarten Orientation" is code for parents to fill out paperwork and kids to play with Legos. That gave him a stupendous false sense of reality. "Kindergarten is awesome! I get to play with Legos ALL THE TIME!"
On his first day of school, he was a wee bit shy until her met this little lady five minutes after arriving.
"I'm the Mack Daddy and the Daddy Mack."
I am, and will continue to be, SO ROYALLY FUCKED in regards to these boys and their charms.
So now both boys are in school all day. All day. ALL DAY. This means seven hours a day of pure, unadulterated FREEDOM for me. FOR SEVEN HOURS A DAY, FIVE DAYS A WEEK.
Obviously, you may not get it, but this means I can have a phone conversation uninterrupted, I can go to the bathroom and not have an audience, I can buy groceries without whining, CAN YOU HEAR THE ANGELS SING?!
