Back to school time is really stressful -- not for the kids, for us moms, yo. We have a lot of people to please during that first week back. From buying the perfect first day outfit and the "cool" kind of backpack to packing the right lunch and sending all the necessary school supplies to class. How long was your classroom supply list? Mine was longer than my grocery list, and why does no one in this town stock black dry erase markers, dang it?
Besides, if anything goes wrong, it all comes back on mom. Uncool outfit -- mom's fault. Wrong size backpack -- mom's fault. Healthy, no-fun lunch -- mom's fault. I'm pretty sure the teachers even secretly lay the blame on mom. Wrong sized pencil box -- mom's fault. Ill-behaved kid -- mom's fault. I'm telling you, the pressure is on!
Well, moms, consider this right here a support group for all your Back to School failures. We've got your back because we've been there, done that, and we'll listen and hold our judgment.
