Nervous breakdown

I've been away from the blog for a while. I'm happy to say that WCK passed the "turtle" level at swimming lessons and is now an official duck. We took a trip to Omaha to see college friends (and their kids), who we haven't seen in a long time. WCK and I have been spending many hot days swimming in an icy-cold pool near our house. We got together with our moms' group and built gumball machines. (Actually, the moms built the gumball machines while the kids lost interest and ran off to play. Mine looks like it was crafted by a five-year-old, though, so I think I'll tell everyone WCK built it herself.)

Mostly, though, I've been spending most of August trying really hard not to have a complete nervous breakdown about

THE FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN!!





It's in two days. Really, it will be fine. Fine. Just fine. Do you think parents are allowed to bring along a personal bottle of wine to the FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN? It wasn't listed on the school supply list, but I think it should be.

You sneak in the wine and I will bring the glasses - no one will notice!

This is the beginning of the end - from here on she will get all sorts of ideas from other sources and you have every right to want something to ease the pain... I cried all the way home from depositing my daughter there and so did her little sister... we could barely wait until noon to pick her up! The code word for this comment is MANGST... I think it is Mother ANGST.

How do you know when you're having a nervous breakdown?

what signs are there to let you know you're losing it?
