I was in complete denial that school was going to start. I needed two more weeks with my kids at home. Is that too much to ask? Apparently, yes. Because school started whether I was ready or not.
The kids, on the other hand, seemed ready...(dare I say?) maybe even excited to head back to school.
The hardest part about the middle school transition for me is that he's gone ALL DAY. It's like he has a full time job. The bus comes at 8:30 and he gets home at 4:20. OK, I guess that would be kind of a cush job. But, still, it's a long time for him to be away from us. It seems kind of ridiculous. And he only has a 15 minute bus ride. As a mom, it's actually nice to have the kids come home at different times, though. I can give Whitney my full attention when she walks in the door. And then focus on Brandon when he gets home. When they were both in elementary, it was a little trickier to get the nitty-gritty details from each one of them.
Here's hoping for a great year for both of them!
