|Kindergarten, Larchmont, NY|
I also went to the grocery and got a snack that could only be the envy of the other kindergartners, since being snackless the first day had also been one of her major complaints with the school day.
And so, off we set to school, Magpie having packed the snack herself and wearing her gigantic backpack, and looking every bit a kid who was going to have a much better day at school. Did I mention she was wearing her sparkly English Roses purple lace dress and her rhinestone-studded sushi headband - a power outfit if ever there was one. And her hello kitty socks and pink rhinestone shoes.
And, yes, by golly we did it!
Mommy: How was school today?
Mommy: That's great! I'm so glad to hear that.
Magpie: Well, actually it could be an A plus.
Mommy: Really, how?
Magpie: You could take me for ice cream.
Mommy: That's ok, an A is fine.
Every day can't be an A+.
