So Different
Thursday, August 22, 2019

So, this is fun.


That's Alexis waaaay back in 2011 on her first day of kindergarten. In every way, her first day was different than Mila's.


From the uniform to the well-written sign, Alexis was all sorts of put together. Mila is a lot more of a free spirit. She picked her outfit (Alexis went to a different school in kindergarten and had to wear a uniform). Mila decided she wasn't going to write out her entire sign. She has minions, you know. She also super needed to draw a very detailed picture of her teacher. It's hard to see in the photo, but there's a flowery belt and high heels happening, which is hilarious because her teacher is close to retirement and definitely not wearing high heels every day. Or ever. And does anyone wear a belt with flowers all over it? I HOPE NOT.

The other SUPER big difference took a total of two days to become obvious. One kid comes home from school and has to replay every second of her entire day. The other one responds, "I don't remember," when you ask her how her day was. One kid tells me about EVERY SINGLE conversation she had. The other one doesn't know if she talked to anyone that day. Mila won't even tell me if she had lunch, but Alexis is over there replaying exactly how many grapes she ate.

I can't wait until Mila ends up with a teacher that Alexis had. It's going to be super fun watching someone else figure out that one of these things is nothing like the other.
