Dear School Board,

I hate early out day. Well let's see, that might have been a little harsh, maybe I should say, I loath early out day, or it happens to be an inconvenience for me especially when I have a kindi-gartener and it only comes once a week, or when it sneaks up on me (on a day like today) and my daughter still looks like this ...

...and I think I still have 45 minutes to get her ready and feed her lunch but really I only have five minutes. On a day like today she might have missed her lunch, but no big deal because it is early out day. She will be back sooner than I thought. I dislike early out day...

Sincerely,

a mother who loves her children dearly and loves every minute she gets to spend with them and loves to have a set schedule that she can expect their departure and their arrival to and from school. This mother does not like surprises on a day like today when the beloved children grace her with their presence before she was expecting them.

P.S. You don't really need a teacher prep day do you?

Encore: Here is another view of this very funny picture. When your kid hardly EVER takes a nap (like maybe oh, every three months if even that) and she ends up in the middle and ON top of all of her toys, it becomes a spectacle. I found her this way just when I needed to get her ready for school. Oh how I wanted to let her sleep. Not quite sure how she ended up with the Bob the Builder hat on. Can't figure out how that goes with the whole doll house theme or dolls, or whatever else she might have been playing with there. So go ahead... have fun with this picture. What caption would you give it? You can make fun of all the toys that are out of place, or that she is still in her nighty at near noon, I really don't care. I already have...

What a funny picture. I especially love the hard hat! My four year old, who is the anti napper, will at rare times fall asleep in various odd locations and even odder positions. We have some pretty funny pictures of him. I won't condemn you for neglecting to dress your child even though it's almost noon, my daughter "goes to school" in her pajamas most days. I highly recommend such practices, cuts down on the laundry load.

That is hilarious!! She's smart though. She put the hat on to protect herself from any onslaught of trying to get her up. You've got to give her credit.

I think the hard hat protected her from the unexpected urge to just "fall out" and go into a deep sleep right in the middle of all those hard toys!

She is in a toy coma. Too many toys, too little time.

Pretty funny. I want to love half days, but I find myself loathing them too.

Half days are awesome what are you talking about...we just keep our kids home and forget school on those days. I mean heck if the teacher needs a day to plan how to deal with my kids then why not just give them that many less days a yr with them. LOL Just kidding I'm right there with ya, I loath those fabulous teacher days too! Kids? And why are they home early and wasn't it suppose to be MY day alone, wasn't it naptime? Although I do love the picture of kids in odd places yet they're asleep. We have a variety of those pictures too! Maybe you should fess up why she really has a hard hat on...I mean if her mom loathes shorts days does and all. love ya Bon!

I don't have half days, yet. I have all days. It kinda makes it hard to run to the store, or do other errands, ya know.
That hard hat looks very uncomfortable. I'll bet she woke up with a hard hat headache.

Gee, Bon, what are you doing to your poor, sweet, little Kindergartner? ;-)

Bottom line, she just needs a twin. Get her one!
