Our school sent an email today to all parents letting them know the Welcome Packages for the new school year are ready for pick up. How dare they? I can only imagine the joy of someone clicking the send button knowing that in that very instant they had all the power to completely ruin summer and send a taser like electroshock through all moms scrolling their smartphones and stumbling upon this disgusting email.
It was only two days ago in a two hour car ride to a weekend trip with the kids I was professing my love for our teachers and how much in awe I am of them tolerating not only our kids but a room full of kids day in and day out. (This after a long drawn out fight over Yugioh cards between the boys). Yes, I complain, and I admit I do miss having them in school sometimes, but to be reminded that summer break is almost over … Hello, it hasn’t even begun for us?!?!?
We have been head over heels busy! Every weekend has been consumed with some family something or another. We still have the children’s activities criss- crossing the city like bus drivers, and my plans of sitting by the pool and mani/pedi’s have been replaced by an overzealous garage clean out and potty training. Oh hell no!
Finally this weekend we cancelled attending a family affair, and drove two hours away for a weekend that was pretty much dictated by the children. This included ice cream, mini golfing, a haunted house visit, eating absolute garbage, a dip in the filthy hotel pool, fireworks, and a magic show. This can’t be the highlight of our summer break. This can’t be it.
One finger salute to my kids school!
