Back 2 School Season
It’s that time of the year! Back to School! I’m in the minority when it comes to feelings on it. There’s moms that can’t wait to get the kids back to school and then there’s the few that dread it.
I understand that it gets chaotic having them home all day. My mom would always tell us she didn’t look forward to school starting back. I could tell in the way she said it and her consistency with it she meant it. It definitely made me feel good as a kid and even now looking back.
My mom though has crazy patience. No kidding! I didn’t inherit all that but wish I had. She seriously defines patience when it comes to her kids.
I dread school starting because it mean I have to make sure things like homework are completed. My daughter is going into first grade. It sounds funny, but there is some serious homework that they do. It’s tough too when you work, get home, have dinner, then rush for homework and baths.
Don’t get me wrong, I understand the need for homework. I even see the benefits she has gained with it. It’s a structured way to practice what they are learning during the day. But OMG sometimes I just want a break to not have to sound nagging to complete homework.
My daughter is totally looking forward to school starting and is counting down the days so I guess the nagging doesn’t stick out too much to her, lol.
I’m thankful she attends an incredible school and that even up to this point has learned so much. I just wish there were a couple more weeks of summer before it all starts.
Are you ready for back to school? What about the kids?
