It’s Tuesday which means Let’s Get Real….I’m that mom. That looked up and realized what the actual DATE was. (Because who really needs dates during the summer and if you aren’t traveling??) Today is July 29….That should mean something to me besides I have like a million posts due. What is it? I wander over to the calander and BOOM it hits me right in the face: THE KIDS START SCHOOL AUGUST 1st. Ummmm. Wait. Aug. 1 is FRIDAY. WTF. SMH and all those other abbreviations for how did this happen. I know it happens to the best of us. Ok maybe it happens to me more than others. I really suck at realizing the date. So here it is smacking in the face and I haven’t even looked at a school supply list.
Then I proceed to tell the kids. Panic ensues: “WHAT?” “Friday what do you mean Friday??” Then leave it to Bella, “Oh well I missed my friends anyway. WAIT I need to go go school shopping.” She’s usually not so practical. This means I’ll be busy shopping this weekend.
A lot of people are shocked that my kids go back on Aug. 1 considering we got out at the VERY end of May. “Technically” we have what is considered a year round schedule. The kids have a fall break, christmas break, spring break, and a shorter summer break. We all like this more. I like having the fall break because that is perfect for our vacations and the kids like it because they get just enough of a break then get to go back to their friends. Gabe says he feels like he doesn’t forget as much.
SO…when do your kids go back to school? Are they ready? are YOU ready? Don’t make the same mistake as me and forget the date!
