I know I have at least a few readers who check on me when I miss a Simple Woman's Daybook Monday post, so I thought I'd just throw a quick post out here. That way you know I'm alive and kicking... at least for the moment. Right now, all of my energies are going into being the mother of an unhappy kindergartener. I should be a seasoned pro at this. I am not. I am tired. I am defeated. I am weary. I am sad.
According to Addison, she doesn't like math time. She doesn't like that they have to write when they color. Recess is too long. There are too many kids at recess. She doesn't like to fill in words in sentences. Recess is too hot. She can't always hear her teacher's voice at recess. She doesn't like being called Madison. She thinks it is strange to eat in the cafeteria. She misses her old teachers.
As far as I can tell, riding the bus is the only good part of the day. I wonder if I could just pay the bus driver to drive her around all day and give her a tablet loaded with educational videos. Could we call that kindergarten instead?
