Today was Lacey's first day of school. She had been accepted to this really nice pre-school for arts and all of that stuff. Ali had taken her school shopping earlier in the week. She looked so cute with little ribbons in her hair and the prettiest dress. She's going to be such a 'heartbreaker'. The three of us took her together and watched as she went into the class. She gave each of us a hug, kiss, and a "Bye Mommy!". I could lie and say that we all didn't tear up with that, but I think its an important fact to be noted. A tiny part of me wanted her to do that first day of school thing and come running back to us begging us to take her home. I should have known better because if Lacey is anything, its independent. We watched from a little window beside the door as she just walked inside and put her Little Mermaid bookbag with the pink tin lunchbox inside her little cubby. I have to be the bragging "parent" for just a second now, but I noticed that she was one of two kids that didn't have to ask which cubby was hers because she could already read her name -beams-. That's our little girl.
We eventually managed to tear ourselves from the window. We sulked all the way back home. The newfound silence needs adjusting too. I attempted a batch of Pilsbury Chocolate Chip Cookies for when Lacey came home.
Absoulutely oh-my-god unbelieveably wow Suprisingly enough, they came out okay. They were a little dark around the edges, but not burnt (You proud baby? :-*). Soon enough it was 2:30 and we all piled into the car and went to pick her up. She came running down the stairs all excited and hyper. Our "mom" kisses of greetings were now met with "Ugh mom, not here!". How well I remember saying that to my mother....
She had a very sucessful day at school though. They had story time in the circle and read Sleeping Beauty, which she retold to us stopping every five seconds to go back because she forgot something and starting over. Then she told us about finger painting and centers. Then we were informed that Jenny and Taylor were nice, but Livve was just mean. I couldn't get over how excited she was
eating the cookies I didn't burn about it. Tomorrow is show and tell though. So, we must have Todd!Barbie looking in perfect shape for his big debut into pre-school society. Right now though, the Midget and I are teaching her the importance of classic cinema. In English: we're showing her why Casablanca is the greatest movie ever. The part where Humphrey Bogart is up in the apartment with the champagne and lifts Ingrid Bergman's chin up with his index finger then flicks her nose saying "Here's looking at you kid." always gives me the tingles. Of course the famous train scene where she leaves him and when they reunite in Casablanca and he says "Of all the gin joints in all the world, she had to walk into mine." I don't even have to mention the very ed, "Louie, I think this is going to be the beginning of a beauuuutiful friendship." I've seen it approximately 1,000 times, okay? Give me a break, it owns.
In other news I have become addicted to some rather weird songs lately. The A*Teens "Take a Chance on Me" seems to satisfy my pop taste. I don't know what it is about those Swedish kids... Most of all is Maroon5 "She Will be Loved". I should probably thank Shannyn for that one because she usually pimps Maroon5 pretty hard in her craveworthy entries and it forced me to see what they were about. I have to admit I have a secret obsession with reading Shannyn's entries.. -laughs- I don't know what it is about them. They're all so...poetic. They aren't bland but summed up with the good and bad of nature....They're just well-written is what I'm trying to say. I got off topic. I have no idea what it is about that song because at first I sort of just skipped over it. Its really good though. Why am I suddenly sharing this with the world? I have no idea.
I have the Toronto Film Festival coming up this week. So yes Jimmy, on your first laundry day with us you will only have two
naked women, but I'll be back before the next one, okay? I have to go do promotion work for TSD AND POA. I also get to watch Hayden's Shattered Glass. He's going to be an intellectual, yet dirty journalist. That just sounds hot okay. I suggest anyone with free time come up and check it out. I am current need of a hotel roomie since I forgot about the film festival and I can't leave Jimmy in a house by himself :D (I will make it up, I swear).
Hmm, speaking of Hayden, would this be a real Katie entry without me mentioning how great he is? I didn't think so. Well, I'll state it for those of you who are behind and this is only the 394328493938333333390th time you've heard it, he's the best boyfriend ever. -grins- You ever have one of those days where you wish the world just go away and leave you alone, and then that one thing happens to make that day just a tiny bit brighter, gives you hope for tomorrow? He has now become my "thing". That creamy Canadian accent at the end of the line everyday, always with the same "Hey sexy...". Do you know how much his phone bill must be? But I wouldn't give it up for the world; I have a permenant claim on his over emphasised syllables :D. -coughs- Yes, but he keeps me sane, grounded and calls me on my bull (Doesn't it suck that because of me we're batting 1 for 1 instead 0 for 0 in the fight catagory? Actually, its more like 1/2..he never got mad :D But yeah..we're HALF normal now ahah). I love him to no end and I better stop before this makes go back into serious!ithdrawl ....more than I already am.
Wow, that's a long entry. And narcolepsy is here so I must go get some TROPICAL punch before I go to bed. That's safe, right?
