Things I Justine

No, I'm not referring to the state of my pregnancy riddled mush brain. I'm talking about all the things I forgot about school and am now being reminded of now that the kids are back in.

  • The "stuff" they bring home will overwhelm you and they of course cannot throw one bit of it out!

How do you save all those hats!?
  • They are TIRED at the end of the day! Oh and they'll make you pay for it. Lots of crying for no reason!
  • Imaginations are running wild. Phoebe waited all Friday afternoon for us to "play school" with her. She was Miss Vanessa. This is what we were instructed to make...

It's a motivational chart sorta like in her "real" class. Only daddy didn't quite follow all you directions, did he Miss Vanessa?

  • You have to prod, remind and help a kindergartener to do everything in the morning!

  • There's nothing worse than school traffic those first few weeks and nothing better than sleeping in after the weekday routine!

What are you remembering now that schools back in?

Thanks for your post - it helps to know I'm not the only one noticing those things! Here's a few more school things: How much sand travels home in their shoes, cuffs, & pockets. How much I don't like packing lunches, especially if I forgot to do it the night before! And how hungry they are as soon as they get out of school - did they not eat that lunch I packed? :)
