Our crab monster.

This one is all on P.

Another school year, another shark motif.

SS certainly loves sharks, a love that is nurture driven. From the day they met P has talked to SS about all sea creatures. P taught SS how sharks have been widely misunderstood,  and don't ask me how that even makes sense. Their motto is sharks need love too, and SS has shown that love for the fourth time whit her school gear.  Last year I was unable to get SS the matching lunch bag to her backpack (it sold out early), and my daughter was not happy. I really hope I have redeemed myself with this awesome looking combo. LL Bean better keep coming up with new shark designs in order to satisfy SS's school needs.  

First day of third grade.

That was yesterday and I'm such a bad mother who did not mark the occasion with a post. I could not help posting the obligatory first day picture.

No she is not in gymnastics.

Last night of freedom before school tomorrow morning. This is the first year SS is not thrilled, not even happy to start school. Our little lazy American child. We are considering a year abroad in Japan or China.

P is going to miss the first day of school for the first time, due to mandatory training in Orange County. He took today off to just chill with his baby girl.

Although my employer frowns upon taking time off before passing probation, I raised eye brows by asking for one hour off to be there for SS. Isn't it ironic given what I do for a living?
