Dave is always so witty.

This was actually very informative. Avi learns, Shiny learns, and now *pixie* learns. Yay, kindergarten!

I don’t want to add to your neurosis but…I was always the last kid picked up in school. Always. The difference between my Mom and you is that she just plain forgot us while you are rushing to get him from work. While it may tug at your heartstrings a little to get there last, you are at least last for a good reason. I dunno if that helps or anything but it just occurred to me that had my Mom actually been late because of work, it would have been a whole different mental ballgame as far as my sister and I were concerned.

Also? He’s adorable. And from what you post about his little personality? Awesome as well.

Too cute.

Re: food. There is a strict no food sharing at The Boy’s (non-denominational) school for allergy reason. It has emerged however that there is a black market for the “good snacks” — or what I pack because I am a cool mom, but not as cool as Eric’s mom who packs peanut free candy. No clue if it’s kosher.

The Boy never asks anyone’s name either… took a month to figure out his best buddy’s name at school.

I don’t know if I could keep kosher. Too much to remember. Plus, I like cheesburgers. But Passover Coke is yummy.

And Avi? Adorable.

Oh he’s an adorable little kindergartener…

My brother, when he was about Avi’s age (until somewhere in middle grade school) would come home every week or so to tell us about his new best friend. Half of dinner would be taken up with his stories about this new friend, what games they played, what food they brought for lunch, what colour shirt or dress (he was never gender-picky when it came to best friends) he or she wore, what their favourite whatever was. And then mom or dad would ask the inevitable question “So, what’s this friend’s name?” And my brother would look at them as if they’d grown two heads, and say in a voice that implied they had just asked of him the most trivial question ever: “I don’t know.”

Names just aren’t that important when you’re five apparently ;)

Avi is probably the cutest kindergartner in those pictures.

They are starting all day kindergarten in the public schools around my area. I remember going half a day (I was always home by lunch). But I guess it helps them when they get to the higher grades and junk.

But I love that it’s all things you’ve learned from Kindergarten. That just makes me laugh, in a good way of course. And I think I might have to start saying “blind people are people without eyes.” Do you think it’ll catch on?

Dave2: Jewish vegetarianism is quite awesome. :) Been there for the better part of two decades, in fact. Will I continue with it? Guess I should post the final chapter of Operation: Enduring Tofu so everyone can find out…

Early Childhood Narfication: He’s been going to an all-day daycare/preschool since he was three months old, so all-day kindergarten is pretty much par for the course for him. There was one kid who was crying when she had to say goodbye to mom on that first day, but Av just wanted to get rid of us. :)

pixie: If only Dave could be our kindergarten teacher…

Hilly: Yeah – I would assume that these are different circumstances. I just hope he sees that as well…

Nat: I’m glad the name thing isn’t just my kid! I suppose it’s just not as important to know the name of the kid who’s stealing your lunch money — just as long as you stay away from her. As for the “no-sharing” rule — I think in kindergarten it’s far more enforceable than the upper grades. But our kid is still very selective in what he eats, so I don’t think that will be an issue with us.

Finn: Speaking of Passover Coke: I just read a story about someone with severe corn allergies — and how the family would buy out all of the Passover Coke every year due to its cane sugar substitution. But apparently Mexico is still using the sugar version instead of the corn sweetener, so they’ve been going south to get it from there…

suze: Yup – that sounds like his m. o. as well. :) I guess it’s a desire of ours to know with whom he gets along — because one of the parents already invited him over for a standing playdate, and we want to determine if he actually wants to spend time with this kid. (We like the parents alot and the kid seems nice enough.) Maybe it’s the juxtaposition of him already knowing everyone at preschool and almost nobody’s name here…

Sarah: Thanks for the compliment about Av. And I still think that Avi’s definition works in certain situations. Perhaps he’s seen “Minority Report” one too many times…

i don’t even drink pop and i wanna try passover coke. i grew up in the mostly irish neighborhood which was next to the mostly jewish neighborhood where i went to high school and yet i can’t remember passover coke. there were many delicious habits that i picked up (potato latkes, lox and tomatoes on my cream cheese covered bagel, etc.), but i feel like i missed out.

Sounds like the Hospital Tag should be called “Flesh Wound” Tag or “Monty Python” Tag.
