Princess Cupcake and Princess Jellybean have been placed in separate schools.
What Ran through My Head:
How the hell am I going to drop off/pick up one when the other either gets off at the same time or starts/ends minutes after?! I want to be there for both of them the first day of school! I always walk them in! These are new environments where they know nobody at all! I want to check out the school vibe and these teachers!
After a stressful and even somewhat tearful morning call to my mum, I took my babies to their new schools to check out the campuses. The three of us first stopped by the 8 year old’s. I really liked the grounds. The veteran secretary knew her stuff and made sure I knew the bell schedules. She ended our visit with a reassurance, “She’ll be just fine here.” We also ran into the PE teacher who introduced himself and praised Princess Jellybean’s teacher.
Afterwards, our trio hit the tween’s school. The office was already closed but I had talked to the informative secretary earlier. The campus is okay, somewhat old. We found where her classroom is and wondered about the teacher she’s going to get, new to the staff. While I don’t like being low on the totem pole compared to back in the city, the school is a rated 10 and Princess Cupcake only has a year there. Plus, school is not six miles away anymore. The girls’ schools are near one another and near home.
So after lunch made by the girls, I decided to DIY the foot soak using this recipe I had pinned some time ago. I didn’t realize I needed peppermint leaves but I then remembered I had a box of Tazo Mint Tea in the cabinet. So how to decompress this afternoon?
A mini spa pedicure in the 80° backyard while reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone (A good book, BTW, about chimaeras and angels) by Laini Taylor until the water cooled.
My footsies are refreshed.
School situation accepted.
