A Recap...

1) Birthday Party Unwrap: "We" wrote 40 thank you notes in 3 days! Here's how "we" did it:
"You can open up more gifts after you write 10 more thank yous".
Worked like a charm.

M & L are officially 5!

2) Official 5-year Birthday: Celebrated at Fuddruckers! Games, chocolate shake, and my favorite sliders (mini burgers). Plus, my dollar store gifts (butterfly net and bug "house" were a huge hit). Soon I'll reflect more on what it means to me to have 2 five-year olds....but right now there's just too much to do!

 

 

3) Spirit week at school: L & M refused to participate in Miss-Match day. I called them names like "boring" and said "learn to laugh at yourselves" and they called me "mean".

 

However, Crazy Hair day was a big hit!

Can you tell who's who from the back?

 


I spent the morning straightening L's hair and curling M's. VERY strange to see them that way. They both looked older and it was a little Jon-Benet creepy. Surprise!
M (normally straight hair with curls) and L (normally curly now straight)


Pajama day caused a few arguments, as expected. No, the silky, spaghetti strap nightie (while really very cute) is NOT appropriate to wear to school...EVER.

 

4) Last Day of Preschool: I could feel myself on the verge of getting sentimental thinking about a new chapter in their lives, and saying goodbye to teachers and friends whom they most likely will never see again. But there's something about the start of summer, and the $20k we'll be saving next year (yea for public school!) that kept the tears at bay :).

Kindergarten Orientation update

1. we were late
2. they are the ONLY twins this year
3. the three of us are readheads

Needless to say we stood out and I'm sure there's a little "X" next to their names already.
So now I guess I'll have to really amp up the volunteering come September.

But at least it's FREE :) :) :)!

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
