I don't really know what I am musing on these days. It's more like an irregular stream of consciousness thing...it seems to be working.

This week has been particularly busy in terms of Kindergarten involvement, starting with the "100 Things" collage needed to celebrate 100 days of Kindergarten (I guess, I don't really know - I just do the homework they tell me to do). I offer up this advice to any of my readers who have children not yet in school, and feel free to take it or leave it but here goes: get real good with scissors and glue. Now.

It is extraordinarily challenging to find 100 'things' to cut out of magazines or similar and not have fourteen thousand cars and blingy watches, especially with my new regime of immediately tossing most catalogs after a cursory glance. I had to laugh at the collection I did manage to amass; let's just say school is going to be able to figure out our socio-economic status pretty quickly. At least I didn't pilfer one of Gene's boat magazines.

Today being Valentine's day, Bean has parties in both her classrooms, which is fun and all, but of course, requires food to be sent from home. Jello and/or Handi-Snacks were suggested but I offered to send in fruit or veggies - yeah, I did that. I'm that mother. I guess it's better than tofu dogs or kelp chips or something but all I could think was, I've done a good enough job with this that apparently my child doesn't even want to eat the corn dog in the cafeteria when I don't have time to make her lunch. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not. Arguably, cutting up oranges into slices is somewhat easier (not to mention cheaper) than making Jello or cleaning the grocery store out of Handi-Snacks, but still. I comfort myself with the fact that we live in California and thus can get away with the healthy food parental default.
