10 Things Back To School Means…

by DiPaola Momma (HNIC) on August 27, 2012

  1. Coffee and Quiet.
  2. No more Nickelodeon.
  3. Lunch when I want it.
  4. Peeing in peace.
  5. Not having to entertain people… all. day. long.
  6. Getting up at the ass crack of dawn.
  7. The ultimate mom fail…Poptarts in the car.
  8. No more playmates of my own.
  9. Letting someone else be the beneficiary of their smiles.
  10. Watching, heart quietly breaking, as they take yet another step away from me.

Im right there with you. My youngest is in prek half day and I can’t focus on work because it’s too quiet in the house.

I tried to tell myself that I’d be more productive when I had peace. So far, it isn’t looking so good. Hope you succeed where I’ve failed, my friend.

Number 10 is the one that gets me. I do so well until I drive away from the school. Then I lose it.

Yes. To all accounts. Especially that last one. Your little ones are growing up so darn fast!

I am a homeschool mom so I don’t send them off. As I read your list I am both jealous and happy that I am not in your spot;).

I applaud you for homeschooling. There is a part of me that longs to be able to do that. It bows to the other three quarters of me that knows I wouldn’t survive!
