Day 3

It's the third day of school. So far so good. Noakeem was a little shocked that you had to pay for lunch. The school takes orders for Hardees, Chic-fil-let and a couple other local small restaurants. (This is the school lunch program).  I guess this means that at least one of the four is looking to get a juicy hamburger with fries on the side instead of what I'm packing them. Maybe I should treat them  all  to school lunch on Friday.

Dolly told me that she likes school but, does not like aftercare. She said that it wasn't like her class, it's boring.  Usually if something is boring, (by her standards), she tells me.  I told her that because I work, and kindergarten gets out at 12:15, I couldn't pick her up.

I wished for a split second that I had someone I could pay to pick her up and keep her until the rest of us got home. For a  half a second mother-guilt rushed in, and then rushed out.  I don't have a choice but to work, and I know that she is in good hands at her new school.  I guess aftercare is just another one of those things she we both have to get used to.
