First Day

September 9, 2009

The Bug went off to kindergarten today, barely looking back at me, standing in the rain waving and blowing kisses! No, I didn’t cry, didn’t even really feel sad. Honestly, she and I were both so keyed up that I don’t think we could have cried. J. said that he hasn’t seen me so excited, except for MAYBE the day we got married.

Anyway, it all went off without a hitch, except for the fact that The Bug was not able to be inspired by the democratically elected leader of the free world, and encouraged to work hard and take education seriously. That would be because her school chose not to show the President’s back to school speech. I decided it was too early in her public school career for me to start raising hell with the administration. So I’ll let this one slide. But next time I want my kid indoctrinated by socialist, commie, “stay in school” crap, by God, she better be brainwashed!

    You can show her the speech behind closed doors, with the lights down, so no one will know . . .
    Glad it went well. Pictures?

    Our school decided not to broadcast it originally, but now has decided to do it next Monday. Where’s the logic in that? And of course, they sent home an “opt out” form so you can choose for your child to skip the brainwashing. Glad kindergarten is going well!
