Am I the only Mom who is on Week 2 of Back to School and already in disbelief that it’s “same stuff, different school year” ??
The classics are back!
“You can’t wear those postage-stamp shorts!”
“Why? I don’t have anything else!”
“Maybe if you tried bringing in your laundry more than once per Leap Year, you would!”
Ye Olde band instrument. Practice twice on the weekends. Get a signed slip for the next week’s lesson. All good.
“Mom can I practice now?”
“No, your baby sister is in bed now. Your saxophone is too loud and you should have practiced first thing when you got home.”
Exchange of words too long and boring to print here. Blah Blah Blah…All NOT good.
And in the absence of her two older siblings, Little Bee is now lashing out at the cashier at Target or the friend I see in passing at the grocery store. They get her new snarly look and some snappish two-year old comment and a wagging finger point.
There’s always tomorrow’s cup of coffee and the promise of 10 minutes to breathe and look at a magazine or catch up on some meaningless celebrity nonsense from the Today Show.
But as past experience proves…I have been re-warming that cup of coffee for the last week.
I still never get to my target while it’s hot! Grrrrrr…
