How are YOU?

I hate the beginning of school. Invariably, it brings an onslaught of paperwork, sniffles, and children who are grumpy. It takes a good month for Jack to pull it together.

So what do we do?

Run away?  Hide?

I don’t know what the answer is. I know that I am struggling. He is not happy. He is super grumpy. He cries when we drop his sister off at school. He doesn’t want to have speech or his teacher visit. I’ve tried to offer bribes. I’ve tried to read an extra story or play another game…yet, nothing is soothing the soul.

How’s the new school year treating you?

 

(Sorry this is short and sweet. It’s birthday weekend for both of my kids. We’re off on an adventure!)
