My son starts first grade next week. Finally, an end to crippling daycare fees after nearly six years of them …
… but wait, what’s this? School Supplies! Ka-Ching!
Now the school supply list includes the following curious entries:
GIRLS ONLY: 1 box Quart Size Ziploc Bags
BOYS ONLY: 1 Box Gallon size Ziploc Bags and Antibacterial Wet Wipes
I’ve been staring at these entries, hoping that the letters would reform themselves to something that I could understand … nothing yet though. I’ll give it another hour then give up.
Update: Doh, it is because they need both quart and gallon sized bags of course, and half the kids will bring one and half will bring the other.
Also I was reading the wrong section, and spent fifteen minutes collecting kindergarten supplies by mistake. Number One Son was triumphant (for over an hour) when he heard that he really did need a nice new pair of scissors, and that Daddy was wrong about that. But he was still wrong about needing rainbow-coloured pencils, and he’s definitely not getting glue with glitter in it.
On a completely different subject, at what age of child is it appropriate to start worrying about your chances of getting grandchildren?
