Well kids, time is up! Time to head back to school. I’m sure moms everywhere are breathing a sigh of relief. I know my neighbour is.
I was chatting with Sam over the fence on Friday evening as she was preparing to head out to Watrous with the family for a weekend wedding. Her and her husband have three daughters, two of which will be back in school this week. She looked a little worn down and very relieved at the fact that starting this week she’ll only have one little girl to look after at home.
I remember getting all excited about heading back to school after summer. A week or two before the school year kicked in, my mom would take us out and buy us new clothes and all of the supplies we needed for another year of learning. I loved getting back to school. I’m sure my mom enjoyed it as well. After a busy summer keeping a bunch of kids busy and entertained, no one needs more of a break than mom!
School can be an expensive time of the year for parents of more than one child. Clothes and supplies alone can put a serious dent in any budget.
Look on the bright side moms. At least you’ll be saving a fortune in Tylenol!
