The First Day of School at Wifey’s House

Thursday, August 5, 2010

It’s the first day of school at Wifey’s House and I’m not sure whether to get all sentimental and cry or run around the house naked jump for joy. Truth be told I’m leaning toward the second but I do get a little mushy at times like this – I just can’t believe they’re getting so big. Miles is in fourth grade and my little baby girl is a second grader. Wow.

After braving the heat for six hours at Six Flags yesterday, I went grocery shopping so I would have everything I need to make them these for their lunch boxes …

Yummy chocolate chip cookies

And these for breakfast …

Chocolate chip pancakes – yup, we’re chocolate peeps at Wifey’s House

I was channeling my inner Martha Stewart, whipping up stuff from scratch. We’ll see how long that lasts, although the kids loved it. Milan told me I was "the best mom EVER!" And, Miles gave me a huge hug. Maybe there’s something to this cooking thing.

Before we piled in the car to head to school we took our annual back-to-school pics on the porch.

My big girl

My Miles

I bribed them to take this picture

This is how they really felt

Hmm, how long until that school bus pulls up?

Those pics are SO cute! My mom took a pic of me from the first day of preschool all the way til when I left for college. They are awesome to have. Up here in NYC, this teacher still has a month before starting back to school (yay!)

I want those chocolate chip cookies so bad I could lick my computer screen! I hope the kids enjoyed the first day back. My kiddies go back on Monday and as luck would have it...hubby has to travel to California for work so I'll be doing double duty ALL week long. That sucks!
