learning is exhausting

Kaitlyn is so tired from her first day at school that she put together a puzzle then asked to watch “a little tv.” I turned on Food TV and she is watching it. Maybe she’ll make dinner tomorrow. Nah, it’s Bobby Flay and I don’t want her trying to use the grill.

When I picked her up and asked her what she did today, Kaitlyn said “ate upstairs.” That’s what she calls the canteen (because they also eat a snack in their room.. which is downstairs) If that is the first thing she mentions, it must be the highlight. And if eating at school is the highlight either my cooking leaves that much to be desired, or food at school here is a lot different than when I was a kid.

Also, her little friend cried today when her mom picked her up for lunch because Kaitlyn was eating at school… so now that little girl is going to eat there on Mondays to be with Kaitlyn. How cute is that?

    Glad to hear Kaitlyn’s school experiences are positive, even if focused on eating. I remember some outstanding mac and cheese in grade school, in fact. The city chicken matched its slurred name, however.

    Lunch is always better when it’s shared with a friend.

    No, but Barney sat at my table in high school.

    You should tell Kaitlyn that, she’ll be impressed. She just loves his show and his friends Baby Bop and BJ.
