School Rules for Next School Year to Prevent a Mommy Meltdown

This school year is coming to an end and we are limping across the finish line (in some cases, literally).  Only two of my kids are in school, I can only imagine what it is going to be like when all three of them are.  Which, as my six-year-old pointed out, will only be one more school year because then the one-year-old will be in a morning program for three days a week and begin taking dance classes.  Oh, and as a bonus, my eight-year-old threw in the statement, "and you will be older then so you might not have as much energy."  Thanks, now my outlook is so much brighter.

With my perspective on how this school year went, I now have some rules for my children for next school year:

1.  If you are going to be too sick to go to school, get sick the night before.  That way I do not waste time cooking breakfast for someone who is going to regurgitate it on the floor a half hour after eating it.  Thus placing carpet cleaning at the top of my to-do list for that day.

2.  If you are going to fall down in a mud puddle on the playground at recess, pick a day and time that I am at home, not a day that I am at the doctor's office 20 minutes from the school.  Oh, and if you could plan this in advance, I could even have an extra set of clothes in your backpack and you would not even have to call me at all.

3.  If you are going to get sick at school and have to come home, do so before 11:30 so as not to disrupt your sister's nap and, more importantly, my only time of sanity in the entire day.

4.  Remembering that you are supposed to wear something specific to school the night before is helpful.  Remembering that you are supposed to wear something specific five minutes before walking out the door to go to school, not so much. 

5.  Practicing your budding sarcasm skills on your younger sister before school and making her cry is not going to work.  It only makes me break out my experienced sarcasm skills on you and makes everyone's morning only that much better.  Save the sarcasm for your friends.
