I am so excited. Tomorrow is going to be my daughter's (kindergarten) first field trip day. It will also be my first field trip day as parent. I regret missing out on so many of the field trips my son took. I was too busy trying to make a living the hard way. Working many , mnay hours days and nights to pay the bills. Now that I am older, I realize money don't matter. My kids do. They don't know what money is and don't care for it anyways. They want me to be around for them. So after my second, child I left my old job and started a new job with less demands and more time at home. the pay is less but better. I hope to earn more working from doing online jobs. Oh yes, back to the school trip. i don't remember where we are going anymore. But the teacher sent me an invite because they could not let my daughter go if I was not available. She requires too much care and therefore, i need to be present. So the school already reserved a spot for me to attend thsi event. I am glad they did, I can't wait until tomorrow. I even requested a day off for this event. My daughter is going to be so excited when she sees that am going with her on the school bus. I alreayd packed my bags ready- sunscreen, extra clothing, she wets her pants when too excited. water, napkins, (she also have allergies problem), lotion and chapstick. and of course my camera.- Oh wait where is it. Oh its in my car. I have to remember that too.

Well since this discussion was 19 hrs ago, I guess I should be asking how your trip was instead of wishing you a fun day lol. So how was your day? I hope the weather was nice for you. I'm excited, my oldest is in preschool this year and her class is taking a trip to the zoo. So i understand your excitement. we dont go till may 15 though, so i have some time yet. well i hope you had a good time!

Ravinskye, It was the best trip I ever took in my life. Nothing can compare to this trip. I was also in charge of six other kids- I also partnered up with another parent. It was amazing and fun. I know have another reason to envy the full time stay at home moms. I wish I can trade places with them. Those kids were so much fun. I got to spend time with the other kids, and the parents as well. It was a great experience and fun. I would never gained such experience working in the office. I learned what to do and how to handle 6 kids when they all wanted to go to different spot at the musuem. I can't wait for the next one. My daughter had so much fun that she could not help but continue talking and talking. she was even great on the bus. of course, if I remove the pushing etc. She is still rough with the kids, but I believe her therapy sessions are working well and progress is visible. i wish you a good time on your trip and tell us how it went.
