Meet Me – Georgia Lectures Me (and Obligatory First Day of Kindergarten Photo)

Published by on

I bet you can’t guess her favourite colour?

Georgia’s first day of kindergarten. We’d actually picked out a really cute denim dress and ‘jeggings‘ for her first day. She woke up and dressed completely in pink (before I could stop her)!

After the obligatory (and very cute, if I do say so myself) first day photo and a couple of runs back into the house for forgotten items Georgia and I headed to school (walking of course).

She seemed quite grumpy and sullen for the first block or so, but I put it down to first day nerves. Then out of the blue,

Georgia: Mom, do you know what meet me means?

Me: Meet me? Yes, meet means to get together with some one and …

Georgia: NO! Meetme, do YOU know what it means?

I was racking my brains … meetme, meetme, meetme … what is she trying to say?

Me: Meetme, I’m not sure what meetme is. Do you mean –> Meet. Me?

Georgia: Yes, Meetme!

Me: Yes, Meet means to get together with someone at a certain place and time … and …

Georgia: NO! Like when I say, Mom, MEET ME in the front yard! Do you understand what that means?

{I don’t recall, but apparently when she ran in the house to get her coat, I was given strict instructions to ‘meet’ her in the front yard (which doesn’t include the sidewalk!), and she was upset that I’d started walking without her!}

SHEESH! Apparently, six feet past the end of the driveway is NOT the front yard!


Needless to say, I began to see the benefits of leaving the wee tyrant in the big bad school and going home to enjoy a morning of lecture-less peace!


She wasn’t the least bit bothered by the idea either.

She’s just a laugh a minute, isn’t she? Gorgeous!

I think if my kids had said that to me they’d have been walking to school by themselves from that moment on. I wouldn’t have wanted to ‘crowd’ them.

    @jafer, REALLY? If your 5 year old was upset/cheeky, because you started walking ahead without her on her first day of kindergarten, you’d be upset and make her walk alone?!

    Yikes! You’re hardcore (and a bit of meanie)!

Thanks Pauline. She keeps us smiling!

Her smiling recovers our all pains. The most important thing is her smiling. thanks for sharing.

Funny, at least she told you and didn’t bottle it up. Also, well responded to the meanie! They might consider a little attitude flung in their direction is still safer than leaving a 5 year old alone, as prey for a creepo. Sheesh!

So Cute!! She is adorable! And being feisty is good – at least you know she won’t be a pushover at school and will stand up for herself!

The picture in front of the school is so cool! The contrast between big and small :)

[…] to help promote the Cheerios Milestones Contest, I immediately thought about the most recent (Georgia’s first day of kindergarten), but realized we’ve been there and done that on this blog. Then it dawned on me, *Sam is my […]
