Kindergarten Here We Come!

Tomorrow is Kindergarten Orientation for L & M (and Mom and Dad too). I think I'm more nervous than they are. It's a whole new world, and not in the Disney sense.

They'll be sitting down in a small group with the 4 kindergarten teachers who I just know will be secretly testing and evaluating them on their reading, writing and social skills. How can I not be nervous? This is their first chance to charm the teachers so that I don't have to bribe them at the holidays with creative and expensive gifts.

Wish us luck! And above all, I hope the school doesn't have that stale cafeteria smell and scary bathrooms (oh you know I'll be checking) or I'm apt to start looking into private schools.

It doesn't matter if you're on the right track...

....you'll still get run over if you don't keep moving.

That was always my favorite quote and to show you how much I liked it, I used it in my senior blurb for my high school yearbook. Thank God I didn't choose my number two, "Here she come now sayin mony mony...". How funny to think I probably spent days coming up with just the right stuff to mention in that blurb and now half of it means nothing to me.

So I have joined the blogging scene to keep moving forward, and to keep memories of my girls in a place that doesn't give me paper cuts and sticky fingers. This will also be a great place to direct their future prom dates to let them know I can embarrass them publicly so they'd better behave. I figure I have about 11 years to generate enough readers to make it a substantial threat.

In addition, I can stop sending lengthy emails to my family and friends detailing the latest adventures of L and M and my (often poor) attempts at guiding them through the maze of questions, friends, school, and sibling rivalry.

But for the 2 readers out there (you know who you are mom and DH) I promise lots of good, juicy stories (past and present) and drama. With 2 little girls there's always drama.

It can be scary to think of raising two girls in this crazy world. And sometimes their antics turn me into a

About Me

Contact: scarytwins [at] yahoo [dot] com

How I got here:
In 2007 I came across one of my greatest works...my college application essay. In it I wrote about the very first time I shaved my legs. I didn't hold back. I took a risk and I guess Syracuse University had sense enough not to hold it against me.

This little work of genius inspired me to start writing again. And as I picked up the box of memorabilia, my twins came barreling down the steps yelling about something or other. I looked at them and decided I had enough material to start a blog.

Where I came from:
I grew up in a small, Connecticut town about an hour north of New York City. I claim full rights as a New Yorker and often need to visit to get my fix. No matter where I live "the City" for me is, and always will be New York. DC is DC. Chicago is Chicago. LA is just strange.

Where I've been along the way:
I have traveled around the world and settled in the suburbs.

I have experienced the profound loss of my father just weeks after celebrating the birth of my twins.

I have learned that while I am responsible for my children, the only person I am really in control of is me.

Where I'm going:
My goal for this blog is to record my life, entertain those reading it, and when applicable, inform.
