A second reminder was sent home in Lucy's school bag today. The first request was sent weeks ago.
Please be sure to send in a family picture. Thank you for your help.
When did I turn into "that mother"? You know the kind, the one...
who missed the parent night
has the most "spirited" child in the class
forgot to send in her cup for snack time
didn't have a permission slip on the field trip day
has yet to potty train her 3 year old
sent her in with a borderline runny nose
was late to pick her up
I am the preschool slacker, the very kind I reserved a tiny bit of judgment in my heart for when I was a teacher. Do you want to know the strangest part? I'm not nearly as horrified as I should be. Maybe it's because I know I'm doing the best I can and it won't be like this forever, or now I know what it's like to be on the other side, or possibly I'm too tired to care at all.
What I know for sure is yesterday I played mama slam for the first time in months, we've been to the park three times in the last week, the kids raved over the chocolate chip pancakes and eggs for dinner and no one cried on the way to school this morning. All in all, I'm calling it a win for mothering. Who knows, maybe tomorrow I'll even have a family picture to send in after all. Should I send this one?
our attempt at a family photo last tonight (Lyra was under the cut):
Any other supersister slackers out there? Feel free to confess in the comments.
