I was minding my own business, Googling and gathering information about kindergarten applications and being organized and on top of it when my eyes spotted this little factoid on one of the websites for what is considered one of the BETTER schools in the L.A. area.
"Here at the BLANKITY BLANK SCHOOL FOR THE BLANK the elementary school tuition is $26,120."
THIS IS FOR KINDERGARTEN, for Christ's sake!!!!!!!!!
Now that hurricane-like gust of wind in my sails has now diminished to a silent but deadly toddler fart and my enthusiasm and focus is at an all-time low I will drink a cup of green tea, eat a twice-rejected stick of string cheese and cry in the shower.
