The kids went back to school today. If you sent yours with a teacher appreciation present involving printables and a Mason jar…well, maybe this post isn’t for you. However:
-if you found yourself digging through the Clean Laundry Basket on the first day of school, praying it held just one pair of underwear
-if you’ve ever made one of these
not because you’re wildly creative but wildly desperate (how are we out of bread already? And why do we have an entire bag of hotdog buns and NO ACTUAL HOTDOGS???)
-if you changed your pajama top but not the bottoms because no one sees them in the carpool drop-off lane
-if you uttered a silent prayer of thanks because when the teacher talked about healthy drinks, your kindergartner wasn’t the one who yelled “Beer!”. Or if you’re the parent of the one who did
-if you’ve ever been asked, kindly but firmly, not to help with classroom projects involving the oven (there was An Incident last year when the entire fourth grade’s clay models sort of broke and disintegrated. The clay was faulty and I refuse to accept guilt.)
-if you’ve waited in the parking lot while the bell rings and your kid strips down to turn around their pants (“But Mooom! When I wear them inside out, my back pocket looks like a platypus tail.”)
…I’m right there with you.
Let’s do this thing.
