Back to School

Oh me oh my….it’s that time of year again!  I’m one of those mothers who would rather eat nails than start school. I know, I know most moms are counting down the days waiting and praying they make it til school starts (my sister Laurie-aka Minnie) is one of those mothers, she has 5 kids!

I don’t know about y’all but goodness gracious I am not looking forward to “did you study” “do your homework”  “go to bed” “GET UP NOW”!  I have one kiddo and still cannot keep it together.  Last year was middle school for us and two weeks into school I , yes I, not my child, had  a breakdown over lockers and what exactly to take to each class. When you have a kid with ADHD and the school will only allow you to take just what you need for every class, this becomes a huge problem. I’m pretty sure it took us several $100 to organize and color code everything.  Hey whatever works right?  Our biggest hurdle was remembering what to bring home as far as books go!  Each morning I had to look at what was needed to complete homework and then text my child to bring it home.  As soon as he got in the car I’d ask him if he got the correct books for homework?………..
