Why Is It...

That when school starts... My normally happy, go lucky smart children fall prey to these hair- pulling "grrr" questions? Why do they let...
  • Drama happen in all situations?
  • Laziness reign over homework?
  • Texting or little TV bring about the zombies in them?
  • TV privileges become a battleground?
  • Mommy doing homework or housework, NOT be seen as a quiet zone?
  • Forgetfulness as a viable defense?
  • Bedtime a painful chore?
  • Their big brains turn to mush over chores?
Don't get me wrong, it all gets sorted out after a few weeks, but until then no matter how organized we are in getting ready for school, they go through so much whacked out personal routine that I literally lock myself in the bathroom and scream!

It's not helping that between the two opposing schedules of Mr. Man's work shift and school, I am back to being a literal insomniac again. I caught maybe an hour the last 5 days, of zzzz's... Yes, people, I am cranky!

If you've never gone through these, congratulations! As for me, it is an annual ritual. *sigh*

Change is crazy, especially to kids. I find that the first 2 or 3 weeks is killer for them. They come home so tired.
Good luck.

Good luck! I think it's always a chore to get the summer out of the kids and get them back into the school ritual.
