    I liked it when I was the Classroom Mom for my daughters’ respective Kindergarten classes. I didn’t have to arrange, plan, or anything like that. I just was there to be a Mom: “Can you tie my shoe?” “Looky what I did!” “Ow! I fell!” I was a listening ear, hugging arms, attentive eyes. I sometimes got to do Story Time, reading to them. For some of these kids (I’m thinking of my sweet Autumn) I was the only real mothering they got. Best thing is, my daughters didn’t mind.

    Hence the quotes. I was so desperate that I accepted it. I haven’t spoken to her in over 30 years.

    When I was in high school, I had a “friend” who told people that they liked hanging with me because then she didn’t feel so pathetic. I was so starved for any kind of acceptance that I took that as a compliment.

    I love that movie. My daughter calls it “Instant Serotonin”.

    We’ve always talked to the teachers, asking them not to compare our 2 girls (who are 2 years apart in age). Thankfully, they are so different in personality – the older one is very mature & studious, the younger one sunny and always ready to help others – that it was never an issue…although most teachers WANTED to have both of them! Their second grade teacher, when they got their student lists, she actually talked to another teacher about trading a student because she wanted our younger girl so badly!

    I always just missed going to school with my older brother. From (my) 1st to 3rd we went to school together. When I was in 4th he was in 7th, the start of junior high; then when I was in 7th he was in 10th, the start of high school.

    Remember when wearing jeans under a dress was in fashion? I always thought it looked stupid…but that’s me. I also don’t like jeans.

    One Halloween he dressed up as a scarecrow (or something like that) and sat quietly in a lawn chair. When a kid walked towards the door he would get up. Kids screamed! So, to answer your question…yes.

    Our girl starts her high school senior year on 9/6. What’s funny is that her older sister, because she doesn’t have classes on Fridays, is also starting her college classes on 9/6!

    I have 2: one dress, one casual. I love wearing sandals but hate shopping for them because it’s near impossible to find a pair that I like the look of that doesn’t have the stupid thing between the toes. (For the record, I also only have 2 pairs of shoes: one dress, one casual. I’ve never felt the need to own dozens of pairs of shoes.)
