I hope I can remember to keep an interesting, fresh, inspired selection of food on hand for snacks and lunches.
I hope we get up early, and leave on time, every single day of the year.
I hope no one gets a homework assignment that requires Herculean effort, causes family strife, or devastates our weekend plans.
I hope we don't stink. You know, like when we run out of clean socks, can't find the very important form, can't volunteer, or dread volunteering. Stink, as in running late for pick-up, or forgetting that it's crazy hair day. It stinks to be the mom that didn't read the memo about the special assembly, the special meeting, the special once-in-a-lifetime event. Speaking of special, it can stink to have special needs, to not fit the "regular" bill.
I hope we keep our humor. I hope we don't give up, or feel like surrendering.
I hope we can enjoy making HenCakes...
It's the second day, of second grade... forms are filled, socks are on, breakfast was delicious, and she wore a ribbon in her hair. So far, so good.
That looks delicious! Here's hoping for a good year for you & the family. I don't think you'll stink, even if a few of those scenarios happen. I think you're already earning extra points for that beautiful breakfast!
I still stand with my 7th grader at the bus stop and deliver my 4th grader to the front door of the school...I will not give it up until someone bigger than me makes me...that may not be long the way my 7th grader is growing though
Thank you, Kim.
I do appreciate the optimism, at the start of a new year.
Maybe I should revisit this breakfast scenario in February, and again in May!
How about you? Are you settling in?
Chillin' with our children... it's the cool thing to do!
Happy New School Year, to all~
We don't start back til September 10th so we're still no socks, unbrushed hair and pyjamas til 11 most days. Must start to get organised. In addition to being naturally disorganised, I now don't always understand the important letter and have absolutely no idea how parents here seem to know what's going on, when or why!
And whilst I love being able to walk to school with them - this year, I'll stop at the gate - Romy's going into year 3.
Happy new school year.
Oh, hencakes! Hencakes! My favourite! I am so glad the start of the school year is celebrated in such style.
This is my fourth September of not going back to work at a school, and for the first time I am sad! I think I need to go buy a new lunch bag or notebook or something...
Yummy! Those are so creative! I know if I tried that they would turn out to be "big weird-looking blob-cakes" haha! And I love the extra touch of the banana "eggs".
