Most of my readers know this.
So I don't do a lot of the back to school stuff that people recommend.
What am I talking about?
--Well, for starters, when I take Back To School photos, I don't have signs for my kids to hold up. You know, the ones that say "First Day of *enter grade here!* When I grow up I want to be: *insert profession here*" Don't get me wrong, they're cute, but not for me.
Wait. I lie. My daughter DID hold up a sign last year.
--I won't be making cutesy lunches. My kids get a sandwich. Chips. And a dessert. We don't stay away from Little Debbie snacks. Every kid deserves at Oatmeal Cream Pie once in a while. My kids won't ever get these lunches:
--I don't get in the Drop Off/Pick Up line. Ever. My kids walk. Our house isn't far away, they have legs, therefore, they walk. Mind you, I have to walk with Natalie because she claims she'll get "lost forever." Even though she knows exactly where our house is. But it's okay, because I need the exercise.
--I rarely put notes in lunch boxes. Some people do love notes, but I usually forget. Once I accidentally tossed the grocery list in Natalie's box. She was like, "Why did you tell me to pick up milk?"
--I don't make a special back to school breakfast because I'm half asleep and would pass out in the pancake batter if I tried. My kids get cereal. Or a Pop Tart.
I know a lot of people who DO the things I mentioned, and again, that's okay. I have super crafty friends who poke fun at me for NOT crafting. Some even promised to save me some bacon from the big Back To School breakfasts that they make. (Thanks!)
I'm just a simple person, who prefers the simple things in life.
(And guys? My kids go back to school TUESDAY! I'm going to try and not insult them by doing a happy dance.)
