My boys are finally heading back to school tomorrow! It’s about time too. Most of the other districts have been back for at least a week, if not two. I tried to get the boys back on the school bedtime schedule last week, but it is not an easy task.
As a mom, I also have to get back in the school schedule as well. Let me explain what I knew. I have not been doing the dishes after dinner, I started waiting until nap time for the twins. It was easier, I could relax after dinner and not worry about the mess. However, if I try to do that during the school year, I get cranky because there is no counter space in the morning. I need the space in the morning to make breakfast and lunches. So I have to get better about that. I also need to make sure that dinner is ready earlier than I have been for the summer vacation.
Luke (9) is starting fourth grade already and Ronin (7) is going into second. I’m really hoping they stop teaching that common core math shit. And that I will be able to help with homework without losing my patience. The school is going to provide glasses for tomorrow’s eclipse. They are going to learn about and see the eclipse the right way. I was hoping they would make the cereal box contraption, but since it’s the first day, I don’t think they will.
Well, here’s hoping for a great school year and patience for me.
Thanks for reading today!
