For Dr. Grumpy

IF (and that's a big IF) you go school shopping, go at 9 am on Saturday to your favorite store.

Crazy people are still in bed then. Your cart is safe.

Cashiers are perfectly happy to accept Visa to pay for hundreds of dollars worth of crayons and glue.

FYI, 5 year old DS came downstairs this morning, wearing his brand-new Bakugan backpack...excited for school. Except it doesn't start until Wednesday. He was bummed when I told him that.

Thank you. I'll remember that for next year.

Trouble is you get the list on the first monday of school, and these bozos want your kid to have it all by Wednesday.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

And as for DS- enjoy it. Ain't it exciting when they WANT to go, and you don't have to get them ready at gunpoint?

I know ER is older, so I suspect you already know how that part works.

ER's Mom said...

Actually, my daughter can't wait for school to start either!

I know, my kids are wierdos. They come by it naturally.

We went out last night as a "celebrate the new school year" (and hide the fact that we don't have a functional kitchen). Kids were having fun telling the waitress all about it.

Grumpy, M.D. said...

Yeah, that was sort of the idea behind our ice skating trip, except instead of celebrating the new school year, we saw it as closing out the Summer.
