school-1411719801i38School is back in full swing and I’m going to be honest. It’s been wonderful! I have finished reading a book and am half-way through another. I can get my errands for the week done in a normal amount of time. I can shower without having to simultaneously referee some ridiculous dispute. I can exercise. Not “I’m going to park far away from the store so I get a few extra steps in” exercise, but actual exercise!

But like anything that we love, there is always an element of hate lingering somewhere in the background. Here are a few things that I hate about school:

  • Making lunches
  • Having to wake up early
  • Getting the kids ready in time to get on the bus
  • Getting the answer “I forget” or “I don’t know” when I ask what my kids did at school that day
  • Filling out forms with the same information that hasn’t changed since last year, or the year before that, or the year before that.
  • Grumpy kids in the afternoon
  • Making lunches (I know I already covered this one, but I feel that it merits another mention)
  • Forms
  • Forms
  • And Forms

Things I love about school:

  • My kids are gone for seven hours a day, five days a week

I would say that the things I love definitely outweigh the things I hate, wouldn’t you agree?
