He swore to us he has a college degree

Another "Maidink and co-worker" post. Today's co-worker in the spotlight is Jim.

The scene is I am talking to Jim about when the Dinks goes to kindergarten in two years. Holy crap! Two years! *sniffle* My baby's a big girl.

Okay, mommy hysterics over.

Me: Yep, two more years and Dinks heads to grammar school.

Jim: It's not that far off.

Me: Tell me about it. I feel old. in two years, my baby will be in the Anne Frank Little School house.

Jim: Oh, is that a Catholic school?

Me: Ummm, Anne Frank was Jewish.

Jim: Oh yeah. That's right.

Oy vay!

Anne Frank was Jewish!? I thought she was German. (Heh ... yeah, it's like that isn't it?) That is the biggest 'Duh' I had in my head since I survived the following:

Older Woman: "Your children sound so cute!"
Me: "Yes, and they are twins"
"Really?" Says she.
"Yep, one boy and one girl."
"Are they identical?" She honestly asks.

"Ummmm, no. One boy .... one girl."

Slower, louder next time, I suppose.

The Jumping Bean starts in September. Yeah, I've already started crying about it. I'm FREAKED.

The first day of school was torture for me. I was SO not ready for it, and she cried and cried. Of course, she had just turned 3 and was too young for school, in my opinion. But, because of her apraxia, she needs to go to the pre-school handicapped program at the elementary school. She doesn't cry when she's there anymore, but she doesn't want to go. She'll cry and say "Stay? Stay Mommy?" Breaks. My. Heart. OY!

Mr. Fabulous said...

LMAO. Too funny!

Happy Mother's Day! Hope you have a wonderful day!

Virginia Gal said...

Dying to hear how was your Mother's day?!

And to the first comment above...I believe Anne Frank was Dutch! (since she lived in Amsterdam).

Oh dear.

MDM ~ People amaze me.

Ruth ~ Pssst, look behind you. I'm the one waving.

CP ~ Mine just got potty trained. I'm already looking at her baby pictures and crying. I hate hormones.

CeCe ~ The only thing missing was the live studio audience.

Jade ~ Dink kicks me out. She'd rather stay with her friends and Miss Laurrr-en. I don't like her (Miss Lauren, not my kid).

Mr Fab ~ We gotta million of 'em.

jade ~ Oh yeah, my MD2006 was one to remember.

VG ~ That's a long post. I'll do it later.

Sangron ~ Actually, MDM is correct. Due to the increasing tensions in Germany, the Franks migrated from Germany to Amsterdam to try and escape the horror of Hitler.

Maidink said...

Taz and Pig ~ You know most of us Yanks aren't the brightest lot.

PaxRomano said...

Are you SURE you don't work in my office?

Kyahgirl said...

Happy Mother's day.
Don't worry about will be ok.

Sangroncito said...

Yikes! Well, I just learned something new. And to think I've been to the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam but missed that piece of info.
