I am ready for it to be summer.
School gets out next week, but I have been slipping into “summer mode” a bit early because A) I feel like it, and B) my kids basically have 2 weeks of parties.
I am serious.
Today they wore pajama’s to school and took board games.
Tomorrow, I am invited to something at some class, but I’m not going. Because I have two extra kids. And I also don’t want to.
Does it make me a terrible person because I don’t want to go to any kind of “graduation” ceremony? Not for kindergarten, not for first grade, not for anything. I didn’t even want to go to my own graduation. I went because my mom made me. It was awful.
I just feel like they should at the very least change the word from GRADUATION to something more appropriate for a 5-6 year old. And the awards they give out, man, are those ever dumb.
Did you know that Thaddeus got a certificate because he made a good choice? I want a certificate every time I make a good choice.
CONGRATULATIONS CAROLINE! YOU DROVE BY MCDONALD’S WITHOUT GETTING A DRINK AT THE DRIVE THRU. HERE’S YOUR CERTIFICATE FOR MAKING A GOOD CHOICE!
Awkward segue =================
I was looking at my google analytics tonight (because I’m really dorky and like to know obscure things about my readers.) when I realized this: I have readers from all over the world… EXCEPT DELAWARE.
Now, I realize that this is something that’s pretty dumb to notice, except I’m obviously not doing something that the good folks in Delaware appreciate. Otherwise, I would have at least ONE reader from there. I mean, I have more readers from GERMANY and MORROCO where they have to TRANSLATE my blog, than I do in Delaware.
And that is dumb.
Almost as dumb as kindergarten “graduation”, which I will probably end up going to.
