I guess you can tell from the dearth of postings that my angst over kindergarten has subsided considerably. All those things I was saying in August to convince myself that it would be OK, about letting go and all that? Turns out most of it was true.

But this is not to say that I am out of gripes, oh no. Here are the things that have annoyed me in just the last week:

  • Report cards. That’s right, in kindergarten.
  • Indoor recess. Also known as “instead of running around after sitting still for three hours, let’s watch a movie because it’s a little chilly out.” Argh.
  • Antibacterial hand cleaner. They use it every single day and then are amazed that these super-bacterial infections crop up in public schools. Go figure.
  • Sixteen candy-filled plastic Easter (which last time I checked was a religious holiday) eggs. Count 'em.
