    Kindy and the Pub

    The boy loved kinder .. or 'school' as he prefers to call it.




    There were no tears ( from either of us ), and considering we're never been apart for more than a few hours in 3 1/2yrs, I was really impressed.

    I came home, picked up the house, had NO NOISE, no tele, no ABC Kids. Just silence.
    My own headspace.
    Some click-clacking on the computer was the only sound. It was heaven.

    6 1/2 hours BY MYSELF ! ahhhhhh....................

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Dad is home today. We had lunch at the pub.
    Foxtel Sports was on. Some footy replay from 2007.

    So I took a picture of the boys.


    Think they're related ?

    Ha ha ha ha, how funny is that second pic?! That's a great moment in time. Was MC honestly interested or is it just a normal pose for him?

    All of our first day @ Kindergarten shots are wonderful. I'm impressed there were no tears from either side. Well done and I hope you enjoyed your solo time?

    Cute photos. Glad kinder went well and you enjoyed your day on peace. I took the day off and have been having one of those myself today, it's great.

    He looks very excited to be starting kinder. I cannot believe you have only had a couple of hours to yourself in 3 1/2 years. That is quite amazing. It must have felt strange.

    I didn't cry when Pia started kinder, but I bawled my eyes out when she finished.

    No tears, I'm impressed. Glad he liked it and I reckon you deserve those hours to yourself especially with the bub on the way. How cute is the photo of the menfolk!

    Both photos are very funny, purely because of the expressions....

    if you think kinder is glorious.... just wait for school!!!

    peppermintpatcher said...

    Oh my goodness! That is hilarious.

    Louise said...

    Oooh big gorgeous boy - hope he had fun!! Love the other photo - men and their sports hey!

    Violet & Rose said...

    That is one priceless photo.

    And, my goodness, you are allowed to wear crocs to kinder? Our kinder deems them inappropriate footwear!

    Fairlie said...

    That photo is very funny! Although I'm thinking that 'pub' in the background looks a little flash to be called a pub...are you sure it's not a wine bar or a bistro???

    Perhaps I've just been frequenting the wrong pubs!

    M said...

    Aww, look how proud of himself he is. And how grown up he is watching tv with his daddy. And Kinder is school, we always called it school in our house.

    h&b said...

    V&R: Yeah, I was surprised too - although he has my soft feet, that can blister in shoes i've owned for 10yrs already .. so i'm glad the crocs are ok !

    Fairlie - yeah, ok .. mm .. probably more a bistro, i'd say..

    Louise - hope you had a good first day - sorry I didn't pop in !

    Stomper Girl said...

    Umm... yeah-HUH, they're related!! If that is what happens round your house when the football turns on, I hope you're having a girl-child ;-)

    Elizabeth said...

    That photo is priceless.
    Enjoy your silence while you can.

    Heather said...

    Yeah, I think they might be related. Love that photo.

    Melody said...

    Great photo. Kids and their 'dad-like' poses. Funny stuff.

    Good to read all went well and you (too) had a great day off.

    I'm waiting for the day.

    Great photo!

    twolimeleaves said...

    Ha ha!! That photo is utterly priceless!

    And how heavenly is that time alone while they are at school? Aaaah.

    My float said...

    Look at the anticipation, the uncertainty, the fear - will our team win? It's a cliffhanger. Oh wait, isn't it a re-run?! Those boys of yours are hilarious.

    Ah, yes the peace. Make the most of it!

    Such a great photo ! Would it suit fake ttv?

    I too do not put on music or tv whilst the kids are at school - the silence is truly beautiful.

    talk about mini me..... peace in the house ,what is that like????

    meggie said...

    So cool, the two of them!

    muser said...

    I've lost the peace now I'm back at work for our 2 'school' days. I am kind of looking forward to next year when the biggest is at school and I'll have 3 days at home alone with the youngest. ENjoy!

    Kirsty said...

    That is so gorgeous. I reckon the boys at your place & the boys at my place would have quite alot in common.

    Stacey said...

    Oh aren't those photos gorgeous!
    The little fella looks so proud of himself. Glad to hear kinder is going well - it is such a special time.

    Suse said...

    I have pics like that second one, only instead of one dad and one child glazed out over the soccer, it's one dad and three children.

    Mary-Laure said...

    How cute! He seems very proud to be going to school, how great - for both of you!

    em said...

    what a brilliant picture! i'm so glad your little guy is adjusting to kindy so well (perfect timing with a new one on the way too!)

    Trying to figure out which pub it is, not being a pub person. Now if it was a cafe or restaurant within 10kms I'd know it!
    You did the smart thing and made the most of the peace. I spent the day out shopping like a chook with its head cut off. Glad it all went well.

    Love the photos. I'm glad your boy had fun at "school"! That must be a huge relief.
