Back to school is exciting. The newness of it all.
The wonder and curiosity. The hope.
It's doesn't take long for all that goodness to disappear ...
because back to school life includes so much more for this mom teacher.
There's wake up times, schedules to follow, lunches to make,
busses to catch, busy days, time to play, go to practices and homework to do.
There's books to read aloud, time to plan, analyze assessments, study data,
determine interventions, be a champion for kids and teachers, and smile. A lot.
Then there is everything else I need to do.
You know, laundry and cleaning and picking up and dinner and and and ...
And a little time squeezed to take care of me
like tonight and my hair therapy, as my friend Chris calls it.
Back to school is all new and ...
all about trying to get back into school life.
