Cupcakes and Nemo

Today is the first day of school. It's also my kid's birthday, so this day is both awesome and sucky in his mind. Sorry hon, if you had come out 10 days sooner on your actual due date you wouldn't have this problem and you'd get to celebrate your birthday in fantastic summer vacation-y splendor.

I told him to look on the bright side. 1. There will most likely be no homework being that it's the first day. and 2. I'm bringing in cupcakes and because of that he will be the coolest kid in class for a while, at least until the next class birthday comes along. Woo hoo!

So this year he's in 5th grade. (What the?) And he turns 10, which means he's officially a double-digiter (Where the hell has the time gone?) Anyway, in honor of these two milestones I not only sang the Happy Birthday song but I ran around his room yelling "First day of school! First day of school!" like Nemo did in "Finding Nemo". I got a smile for the song and an irritated look for my Nemo rendition. Everyone's a critic.
