This morning I had a crying kid and a grumpy kid who both didn’t want to go back to school.
Holiday laziness is over! Welcome back to routine…
Name me one kid who wants to go to school today.
No one answered. Ha. 🙄
To help them moving along and, let’s face it, GET THEM OUT, I packed up my daughter’s backpack. Both kids were
told forced threatened encouraged over the break to clean out old stuff from their binders and replenish things. They did that but just dumped their stuff on the floor in the closet after, instead of packing it into their bags.
I took the binder and placed it in her knapsack. Only, it didn’t fit right. I kept trying different angles, but it was just too bulky.
So I took it back out and stuck my hand in there.
The crud children keep in their school bags…I know I’m not the only one who has discovered this, it wasn’t that long ago when another blogger wrote about it. SIGH.
- Broken smarties
- lollies from Halloween
- broken knickknacks that used to hang on a key chain
- tiny stuffies with hooks
- little notebooks
- pencils and things like that without tips or ink
- bag of socks
- extra gloves (haven’t checked if they match each other yet)
- empty mini snack boxes or wrappers
I half expected a dead critter in there…
Not sure what the boy’s bag contains, I opted out of checking his this morning.
Eventually the husband got up, not able to listen to the girl child crying, and offered to drive them to school. Well whatever, if it gets them out quicker, then so be it.
And so it begins anew, the routine and activity schedule.
