It's 4:30. That time of day when the kids have exhausted every possible activity and are now picking/fighting/annoying each other to the point that I want to lock them in a closet for the rest of the night. Back when Eric was in school this was just about the time he would be calling me to tell me he was on his way home. I looked forward to that phone call ALL. DAY. LONG. 4:30 has now been bumped to 7:30+. 7:30!!! Translation: 3 extra, single mom hours of the boys picking/fighting/annoying each other to the point that my jaw hurts from clenching so hard. Granted, my reward now when Eric comes home is cash, but it's still a long day.
Ethan starts school on September 2nd. Today we went to his school to register for his class. I think there are four Kindergarten classes. That's 100 five year olds. I guess one benefit of living in OC - kids. Hopefully, they are not all spoiled rotten. I am just waiting for the day when E comes home and asks me if he can have an ipod or cell phone. I see kids with them his age and it blows my mind.
