Photo: Laurel on her first day of school

School shopping turned out to be more of a scavenger hunt than I expected it to be, but we acquired almost everything on the list in time. Office Depot will be delivering the rest (12x18" construction paper, 12x18" manila paper and a box of 72 of the particular brand of #2 pencils the school supply list specified since finding plain yellow #2 pencils around here was ridiculous) to our house tomorrow along with a few things I wanted to stock up on for my personal stash.

Laurel had a bit of a rough start this morning after waking up to a low blood sugar episode, but I cajoled her into eating and nudging it back up with a Pop Tart. (I know it's not the best breakfast choice, but it's one of those times I'm okay with her having something sugary.) After she got ready to go, she barely stopped long enough for me to take a photo of her before we took her to school.

Thank you. She picked that jumper out specifically because it has letters and numbers in the print. She's been on a Disney Princess kick for months, fueled by her birthday party, those sandals (a gift from my sister Amy), and then spotting that lunchbox over the weekend on a quick grocery trip with Vogon.

I love buying office supplies on a level the stereotypical woman would reserve for shoes or jewelry. I spotted Waterman Hemisphere pen/pencil sets on sale a few weeks ago and had to exercise all the restraint I could muster to not buy a set.

Laurel has exquisite taste.

I really like office supplies, but as the owner of thirty-two pairs of shoes, I gotta say the shoes win out for me every time.

Hooray for a heart-shaped lunchbox!

That's what that Nirvana song should have been about. How he's got a heart-shaped lunchbox and it's awesome. Instead of, you know, whatever it was about. I don't know. All heroin or something. I don't know. Whatever it was, it was INFERIOR to the Lunchbox.

There is an inordinate lack of cute adult jumpers.

Is it just me or has she gotten super tall!?! It's funny isn't it - how we've been part of each others lives online for years now? It's good to know that it's not only my babies that are getting SO big! :)
