First Week Of Kindergarten

(Picture I took of Mikey right as I woke him up for his first day)

Mikey has only been in Kindergarten for a week now, but it somehow feels like forever.  Maybe it’s the driving him there and back everyday?  It’s been fun though.  Here are a few of my favorite things that he’s said this week.


Me: Did you have fun on your first day of Kindergarten?

Mikey:  No, it is really boring, Mom.  We just sit on the floor all day and do nothing.

Me:  Mikey, it’s not going to be like preschool where you get to play a lot.

Mikey:  I know.  But we didn’t learn anything either.  Really. We just sat there all day.


Mikey:  Mom, can I ask you something?

Me:  Sure, babe.

Mikey:  All the other kids are getting chocolate milk with their lunches.  Do you think it would be all right if I had some money for milk?

It starts already…..


Mikey:  There is something weird about Kindergarten.

Me:  What?

Mikey:  They call me a weird name.

Me:  What’s that?

Mikey:  MichaelC.  I don’t know what that means.


Mikey:  We read a funny  book in school today.

Me:  What was it called?

Mikey:  Little Miss Trouble

Me:  What was it about?

Mikey:  A girl who lies about things and so people punch her in the face.

Me:  What?  Are you sure?

Mikey:  Well, she lies about things.  I don’t know if anyone punched her in the face.


(Mikey’s homework for the week is to write his name once a day and then turn it in at the end of the week)

First Day of Homework:

Mikey:  This is taking forever!

Me:  Your name is six letters long, sweetie.

Mikey:  Ugh.  I hate homework.

HaHaHaHaHa….It starts already…….


The second day I picked Mikey up from school and he looked miserable.  We made it to the car and he admitted that he had to go to the bathroom really bad.  I asked him why he didn’t go at school.

Mikey:  The toilets are really weird, mommy.

Me:  What to you mean?

Mikey:  They are this small (holds hands about a foot apart)

Me:  Are you sure?

Mikey: Yes, they are too small for me.  But I’ll go next time.  Even that would be better than this.

(We asked Lizzie, the toilets are that small 🙂  )


Every morning we go early so I can park by the gate he goes in and watch him walk in without getting all the kids out of the car.  Every morning he gives me a hug and a kiss and then starts walking away.  Then he says, oh wait, I forgot, and comes and gives me another hug and a kiss.  Then he stops and waves with the cutest smile on his face about 7 times during his 20 yard trip to the gate.

Love this boy.

  1. Haha, all of the conversations made me laugh. He’s such a little sweetie, coming back for more hugs and kisses. I can’t believe how fast our kids are growing up. Next year Anna will be in kindergarten too! Aaaagghh! 🙂
