Anyone else get the irony about this Monday truth on a Tuesday?
Seriously, I’m six days into the school year and I’m already feeling the time suck. We spent an hour doing our daily 15 minute reading lesson last night thanks to a million distractions and the fact that we’re six days back into school. Let’s be honest, this is painful for everyone. I clearly also learned that we need to get the homework show going way earlier. #lessonlearned
My blissful spare time from summer has been ripped away like a band-aid.
I want summer back.
Too soon to start the countdown?
(ok, maybe just a touch)
I miss casual nights, maybe an impromptu family dinner out, no panic that I didn’t check a backpack soon enough and now there’s “parent homework” of a million papers that must be completed as of five minutes ago.
I want to binge something on Netflix, anything. Now, I’m in that awkward TV phase before new shows return and the reality that I don’t have enough time after bed routine to start a new show. I know, laughing as I type this because seriously, first world problems.
I’m also slightly nervous that in first grade I won’t be able to understand her homework, particularly math in the crazy way they now teach it.
As much as I’m despising the homework, I’m equally eager for what the school year might bring.
Fall, you guys, it’s almost fall. The temperatures start to cool, if you’re somewhere further north, foliage is just beautiful, and there’s pumpkin everything, Halloween and more time outdoors.
So, ok; I’m adjusting just like my little girl to a new school routine (did I mention the early mornings again?! Uggghhhhh, I’m so not a morning person) but I’m sure will get through it. I can’t promise I won’t complain a little though. Because, again… mornings out the door before 7:45 am should be illegal (and I know some older kids leave at 6:40 am; WTF).
I have to be strong here in front of my girl so she thinks homework and early mornings are totally awesome. Totally.
Luckily, we have each other over here.
