Back To School: mUm, Where Did I Put My Book?

http://crikeymum.blogspot.com/2010/08/back-to-school-now-where-did-i-put-my.html

If, like me, you are counting the days 'til Summer holidays take a hike, then you are also getting ready for the back to school madness that, somehow clings to my, almost 11, step-daughter, and probably, most children this age!



This whole back to school madness, with missed lunches, dog ate…

Becoming a stay at home mom part four....

Jay blew into our lives like a whirl wind. He was my cousin’s fiancé’s cousin (kinda confusing, I know) and we met because my cousin lived in the apartment upstairs from me.





We started talking slowly – my car got stuck in the snow a few times and he would come down and get me out.

Then we started actually hanging out, and the first time he came over, we talked nonstop for 4 hours! It was great. I was actually happy when I was with him, and I felt so…

Using Leftovers for School Lunch

Running out of ideas for your kids’ school lunches? Nobody wants to eat the same lunch day after day. That’s why LEFTOVERS are a perfect idea for lunch. Always cook extra so you know there will be enough to send for lunch the next day. There are many dinner foods that can be made into a nice lunch and it will be super convenient for you so you won’t have to prepare something new in the morning! Finding the time to plan and pack the perfect lunch can be a challenge for most families. School… Continue

Life is insane and never catching up

I must have been kidding when I said that I would have more time to
blog, amongst other things, when my daughter started school. Life has
been anything BUT completely hectic. Wine, anyone?

PART 2







After being out of work, and living on one income plus a small amount of unemployment, we decided that I needed to go back to work. Violet was older, she was more adjusted and a little less clingy. We decided to

give it a try - again.

Marker discrimination? Who knew??

All my daughter was required to bring with her when she started

Kindergarten, other than a backpack, was as listed on her class web

page:



A supply box labeled with your child's name

A pack of colored pencils

A pack of washable markers



The school will supply anything else that is needed.




Shortly before school started, Kevin had picked up her required

supplies. Since we had waited until last minute to pick up her things… Continue

A Terrorist Plot Unveiled…

It’s a tragic story. A community up in arms, frightened for their children, as one small body after another turns up. Flattened like pancakes. Stiff, furry tails sticking straight up in the air, a grim marker of a senseless death. You see them every day, littering the streets & sidewalks, while mothers scurry past shielding the eyes of the innocent children in tow, hoping to protect them from such a horrific sight. Along the grassy boulevards, little furry sentinels keep watch, like an…

Back to School and Back to Blogging!

What a crazy, CRAZY month September has been! Almost 3 weeks ago, my daughter finally started Kindergarten and, can I just say, that I don't think I have ever been this busy, nor have I ever second guessed myself more in my life than I have now?



It all started with some busing issues (courtesy busing cut due to state budget cuts. Had to pay a $398 fee!), and then between fundraisers (more payouts. Eek!), and helping Raelyn adjust to going to school 5 days a week (never mind the BOTH… Continue

The Golden Rule…

I’m no stranger to the wonderful world of Kindergarten. This is my fourth foray in to the realm of refrigerator art, trips to the farm, & agonizingly annoying Letterland characters. And as many of you know, I have not taken kindly to having to send my last wee baby off to school this fall. Aside from the obvious reasons that any mother can relate to, there is another, far more compelling, reason as to why I was loathe to put her in the hands of the educational system. Those bastards…

Mom vs. Herself…

The biggest thing I’ve learned as a parent, is the biggest thing I struggle with the most as a parent. Because it demands that I engage in a constant inner struggle with the very fabric of my being. Here’s the lesson…BEFORE I give in to my immediate reactions, stop & ask myself: are MY opinions/actions/decisions what’s best for THEM?? It’s usually not…thus the struggle. Having to back down, bite my tongue, stay out of it, go with the flow, often requires a massive dose of happy pills…

I'm Happy. I'm Sad.

Today was the day for my girls to return to school. I now have a 7th grader and a 4th grader.

Yes I'm happy to be back into the routine of a some-what quieter day (and I'm happy that I get the computer to myself!), but I'm also sad that they aren't here. That they are growing up... growing up so fast! 7th grade?! How in the heck did my oldest reach 7th grade already?!?

*heavy sigh*

I still feel like hanging outside their classrooms, waiting to see…

Belted Freedom

Hunter is having a little problem with her daily bus ride. Evidently she doesn’t feel the need to sit in her seat while she is on the bus. Since the girls both ride the same bus everyday, we gave them permission to tell us if anything happened on the bus…it wouldn’t be considered tattling. I don’t like tattling.…

My Bad…

It’s not in my nature to apologize. I rarely see a need for it, when I’m always in the right. But as I once again find myself spiralling down in to the second gaping pit of depression to tear open the streets of Crazy Town in recent months, I’ve simply found it far too difficult to type while clinging for dear life on the edge of the precipice. Frankly, I can barely maintain my tenuous grip on my sanity, never mind my keyboard. This, of course, means that I have sorely neglected my Mayoral…

Why I chose public school

Last year at this time, I was tearing my hair out, in tears trying to figure out where Isaac was going to school for kindergarten. He had just come out of an amazing integrated preschool, where he had been for 3 years. I wasn't handing my crazy boy off to just any school. I had only a few weeks left to make a choice. I had options for Isaac to go to private school, public school or even… Continue

Moms transition into back to school mode- Are you ready??- Previous Post

Yes it's that time again...Back to School. In some parts of the country like mine, kids returned to school as early as August 2nd. Needless to say I home schooled last year and it was a neat experience

but this year the kids returned to traditional school. Both my kids

have been actually really excited and today I walked my son to 3rd

grade. His teacher seems nice, and my daughter went to 8th grade and we

almost got lost finding some of her classes.

Moms.. I don't… Continue
