School is back in session!!!!!
I'm sure plenty of parents are “HAPPY GO LUCKY” about their kids going back to school but I’m like the total opposite.
|Sorry, for the picture quality... I snagged this off of Instagram|
I was totally NOT ready… It just came way to FAST! I still had things to do… LOL!
School starting back for me it’s a JOB!!!!! Yesssss a JOB!!!!
When the school bell ring in my mind it only means that I have to make several trips back & forth to the school, multiple school activities, and trips to the Boys and Girls Club. I know you thinking just utilize the school bus whelp, that’s not the case over here my daughter attends a Charter School and one requirement for Charter Schools is the parents have to provide transportation if you do not live within the pickup area.
Ooooo… and let’s not mention the hours of homework, projects, more “teen talks”, and let’s NOT forget more money; more money! I don’t know about your child(ren) school but I know we are dishing out money on a weekly basics round here. It’s almost like the kid need a grant just to attend public school.
~ Bottom Line: School = TIME, MONEY, and GAS so I must pack some patience for the next 10 months!!!!
Don’t get me wrong the benefits in the long run are PRICELESS!
I just hope my 11th grader appreciates and understand the sacrifice that we make as PARENTS!
I think she's get's it I just hope she don't forget it! BTW, the 1st day of school just so happen to have fallen on my 40th EARTH Day!
My oldest daughter gave me a Blog Camera as she calls it so I can stop using my phone to take pics and my Baby Girl surprised me with breakfast! (So, I'm thinking maybe she's gets it)
To make things a little easier and to save on time we iron school uniforms on Sunday and do meal planning for the week.
Here’s a peek inside at last week meal planning… It went very well!
