The TRUTH About Back-To-School
I guess most kids are back to school.
Except for Seattle schools, but they’ll get back soon. I’m sure.
Not that my life revolves around back to school, BUT IT DOES.
I mean, I have 3 kids.
What’s funny about back-to-school is… many parents get so excited (myself included) about it.
I mean, it’s return to ROUTINE. And for those who work (me – from home) it brings a promise of, well… if I am being completely honest… LESS GUILT.
Nothing says mom-guilt quite like being on the computer all day.
But here’s the rub.
BACK TO SCHOOL ALSO MEANS BACK TO HOMEWORK, PEOPLE.
Can I have the guilt not taking advantage of a gorgeous summer day because mommy has deliverables back please?!
Um, excuse me but I ALREADY PASSED 5TH GRADE.
The cool thing about back to school (besides a bit of a schedule – however INSANE – but a schedule nonetheless) are the first day of school pictures.
So, being the kind-of mom that I am, I made them all get up at the same (very early) time so they wuld all be ready at the same time because DOG GONE IT I’M GONNA GET MY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL PICTURE.
Because their first day of school is all about me.
