My 5 yr.old son, Alex began school last week...upon mcoming home, I asked him what he had for lunch....he told me that they had pizza and mashed potatoes and the potatoes were nasty.... My grandson, Sean, laughed at him and said that it was applesauce....Alex replied that he did not like that either... Kids are so funny sometimes....I just wanted to share my impression of his first day at school....

Isn't it funny how we can remember the first day of school. for myself I had to go to the bathroom and was afraid to ask, and of course ended up having an accident, and even when my kids started school I made sure they knew where the bathrooms were and how to ask to go. Another first day was my brother, The city changed the boundary rules, and instead of going down the end of the block my little brother had to walk 12 blocks to a new school. My dad walked him the first morning, and ten minutes after dad was back home my brother showed up, saying he was worried he might not remember the way, My father turned to him and said you did a great job, now find your way back and stay there until they tell you to go home. Every one thought this was so funny. I thought it was exactly what I would have done. it is sweet now but not back then. great discussion

That's funny! Kids are hilarious, aren't they? I was wondring at first why they would serve pizza with mashed potatoes? LOL My daughter starts first grade next week so it will be the first time she takes a lunch to school. I will probably pack her lunch most days so that she eats healthy. But I know she will want to buy lunch on some of the days, especailly on pizza day!

Oh your poor Alex! That is so cute though. I don't think I will ever forget my lunch on my first day of kindergarten...for some really stupid reason the school decided to do a surprise fire drill! All of us little kidergarteners thought it was real and stood outside sobbing about our new lunch boxes getting burned up! My Ryan starts his preschool/pre-K program next week. I explained to him tonight that on his pre-K day he would bring his lunch box and eat lunch at school...he said "But Mommy, grandma's plates won't fit in my lunch box!" He then decided that he would just eat cookies...
