what makes you happy: a hug and a kiss, but from mom's that don't wear lipstick on sundays
i started to tear up when he gave me a hug and a kiss.
and again when he walked under that banner on the red carpet.
so i figured i'd better just walk fast to my car if i was going to cry.
but by the time i got to the car, 
i couldn't muster one lousy tear.
i'm just a sucker for pomp and circumstance i guess.
susie and i picked the boys up and took all of the kids to chick-fil-a.
where they told us that they read a story,
had recess,
found their bins,
were unsure if they had name tags on their desks or not,
and really, couldn't remember where their desks were anyway.
brennan told me he was sitting by a girl with hair.
clearly disappointing to him, which i thought was hilarious.
and then they ran off to play in the play zone.
 oh to be finished with your 1st day of kindergarten.
right before bed we couldn't find monkey anywhere.
all of a sudden brennan said he remembered where he was.
and i was all, "why??!! monkey shouldn't be going to school!"
and he was like, "i sneaked him into my backpack."
and i was all, "how come?"
and he was like, "so i wouldn't be scared or sad at school."
at which point my heart melted,
my brows furrowed all puppy dog like,
and i had to climb into bed with him.
so i could hold his hand,
with monkey on his chest,
to watch him fall asleep.
thank heavens for little boys.
