It took me six-and-a-half years to get to this Very Special Edition of back-to-school.
As of 8:25am today, both of my kids are in school full-time.
[Kim throws confetti, takes sip of champagne]
My oldest has desperately missed school since it ended in June. My youngest has been ready for full-day school for well over a year. I’ve been ready since she figured out how to pick child locks at 9 months old.
We traveled a lot this summer, had a lot of togetherness, and have been getting on each others’ nerves. We do better when there’s a routine. When there’s personal space. When we each get to do our own thang with our own peeps.
So the three of us were all smiles this morning when we got to school.
Okay, fine. Maybe mine was a liiiittle bigger than theirs.
Now they are getting settled in their new desks and I’m catching up on some reading. Won’t you join me?
