It’s like looking into a mirror of my five-year old self.


It only took nine years in kindergarten, but Susie finally managed to get the teacher to spit her coffee all over the carpet.


During our morning meeting discussion about what we wanted to be when we grow up, Susie crossed her arms and said matter-of-factly,

“I can’t wait to grow up to be a mommy. Then I can stay up late and drink Mommy drinks.” Smile.




Please send the janitor to room 222 for a clean-up.

Mommy drinks are totally worth the wait.

Oh little Susie - dream the dream until reality hits. Then you'll know why mommies have those special drinks.

Maybe she means Milk of Magnesia and Pepto Dismal, as my father used to call it.

Yeah, tell the kid to come to my place. Mommy drinks abound, especially now Mommy turned into Nana, with no witnesses.

Katie's kindergarten teacher had great advice for us on orientation day this year: We believe half of what our kids tells us about her and she'll believe half of what they tell her about us ;)

This advice came while she was reading Miss Bindergarten's Kindergarten something or other. Someone kissed one of the students goodbye in the book and one fresh face raised her hand and interjected, "My mommy and daddy kissed after they got married."

The secret is out about how mothers retain a semblance of sanity.

I love these kind of stories. My wife teaches pre K and she hears some great ones as well.

CSY said...

Let her know that sometimes Mommy Drinks are the ONLY way mommies can deal...with Daddy or just being a mommy

My 7 year old told me he wanted to be President of the United States. Sorry, kiddo, should have said you can be anything you want to be granting an Amendment to the Constitution.
