Summer is officially over. As I wipe the tears from my eyes (literally), I take some solace in the fact that we sent it out with a bang yesterday. Our friends are rich and we are not, so we jumped on the chance to go boating with them yesterday. The kids had a blast (as did the adults), but now it’s over. Hopefully, you all had a nice Labor Day weekend.
My son is not as cool as he thinks. The “peace” sign is an obsession lately. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t even know what it means.
I spent today getting ready for tomorrow. Isn’t that how it goes? My last day of summer break is actually my first day back because I’ve been working my butt off all day getting ready for our “first day”! You following me here? Well, I thought I’d show you something that has changed my life. Our school drawer is what I have developed in order to make lunch making a little easier on me. And here it is…
Pretty complex concept, huh? I put all the elements needed to make lunches for the next day into one drawer. I know, I know…I’m a genius. It seems simple, but really–it’s heaven sent. Isn’t it amazing how something so little can make us moms feel like we just hired a full-time nanny?? Open up the lunch drawer, throw in some fruit and juice, and run out the door because mom’s late for work again!! (Insert squealing tire sound here.)
While I’m on the subject of pure genius, I might as well advocate for this little…umm…thingy. I originally started doing this because my husband used to get the kids ready for school since I had already left. I’m sure all your husbands are just dreamy perfection, but MY husband has no idea how to pick out clothes. I’d come home and find out that my daughter was sent to pre-school with a Tiger’s jersey on and some polka dot leggings with a hole in them! That’s just blaspheme!!Since the purchase of this gadget, things have gone a little smoother. However, I’m still convinced that my husband tries to look like he’s inept at doing something so that I’ll just do it myself, but that’s a whole other Jerry Springer show. Well, I’m off to look over lesson plans for tomorrow and then spend my entire night dreaming about students that I can’t control and showing up to work naked.
