Second day of school

Yesterday afternoon was a fevrish attempt to have the second attempt at school to go a little better than the first. I went into town and got Molly a delightfully tween backpack (knowing how she likes to be sophsticated) in tie-dyed purple and a rhinestone tatoo-style heart, a purple polka dotted folder (she had been very upset not to have her folder on the first school day) and then later that evening went on a family outing to CVS to get the rest of the pencils, markers, paper and scissors to the teacher's exact specifications.

I also went to the grocery and got a snack that could only be the envy of the other kindergartners, since being snackless the first day had also been one of her major complaints with the school day.

And so, off we set to school, Molly having packed the snack herself and wearing her gigantic backpack, and looking every bit a kid who was going to have a much better day at school. Did I mention she was wearing her sparkly English Roses purple lace dress and rhinestone sushi headband - a power outfit if ever there was one. And her hello kitty socks and pink rhinestone shoes.

And, yes, by golly we did it!

Mommy: How was school today?
Molly: A
Mommy: That's great! I'm so glad to hear that.
Molly: Well actually it could be an A plus.
Mommy: Really, how?
Molly: You could take me for ice cream.
Mommy: Everyday can't be an A plus. A is fine.
