Back to School: One Week But Who’s Counting?

Thursday, July 29, 2010

One week from today my kids start school again. It’s not like I’m counting the minutes or anything, ahem, but the thought of returning to our regular school-year routine is making me want to run around the house doing back flips delightful.

Don’t get me wrong, I love summer vacation and spending time with my children. As they get older each year I enjoy it more, but as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.

Truthful moment, I use every second of that school day to take care of work and family tasks; and I’m much more productive when they’re at school. But, as happy as I am to zip through the drop-off line in the morning I’m just as anxious to see their little faces step off of the school bus in the afternoon.

Who wouldn’t miss these little smiles for seven hours a day?

How about you? When does school start for your children? Are you excited or dreading the moment? Carpool-line Mamas want to know …

Wow - you start early. When did our kids get out for the summer? We don't go back til third week of August, and yes, I'm counting the days. :-) Like you, I'm super productive during that school day, whether I'm working, doing housework, exercising or catching up w/ other moms!

I am DREADING the start of school because if my kids go back to school, that means I go back to work. Being a teacher is starting to majorly suck. Shhhhhhhh don't tell my principal.
