YES!! My kids have gone back to school! The first week of school is always full of excitement mixed with nervousness and a dash of relief. A new school year is upon us, which means scurrying to get homework and chores done while dinner is burning on the stove. It seems that even thou it’s the kids in school the parents have the most work to do! The first week is always the same. The kids come home with backpacks FULL of paperwork for us parents to fill out and nothing for them to do. I don’t know about anyone else but I never see anyone doing any homework until the 2nd and sometimes 3rd week of school. What the hell is that about?! It’s like there’s a cap on how much paper can be used each week and at the moment it’s all designated to the parents!!
However, I can proudly say that my home is quiet again. Well as quiet as it can be with a 23 month old boy!! Even with all of his toys he still gets bored and needs me to entertain him. I don’t mind. Kids this age are really fun. While on my mission to find something new to amuse the little guy I found that Fisher Price has some really cool learning games on their web site for Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers. We spent quite a bit of time playing and learning. I suggest everyone give it a try if you’re in a rut and running out of ideas for your little guy or girl.
Have your kids gone back to school yet?
Here’s to a great school year!!!
