A New School Year
September 13, 2012
And so it happened that the shiny yellow bus came once again to pick up the small people and bring them to school. Hallelujah! The children and the mother both rejoiced.
Now, three weeks into the school year and three weeks into homework and sleep deprivation, the rejoicing sounds more like whining and yelling than heavenly angels singing.
Don’t be fooled. They are not excitedly running to see me and tell me all about their day. No they ran right past me.
It was the puppy they missed.
Once again this year I have taken the time to write a list of New School Year Resolutions. You should go read it and then tell me what yours are.
Not on the list, exercise while the children are at school. Because let me tell you watching your children run track all summer long is not the same as running it yourself. Sitting in the hot sun sweating your butt off does not, in fact, sweat your butt right off. Who knew??!!
