My kids went back to school this week. I think they are glad to have more structure in their days and to start using their brains again. Now I just need to get myself back into some structured days without entertaining kids.
I told my boys I was going to walk to school with them like I always do so I can get pictures of them and Josh said "Oh Mom, do you have to walk with us?" He's a sixth grader you know and those kind of things embarrass him. I walked with them and took their pictures anyway.
Nick actually liked me being there. But he soon found his friends and he forgot all about me. And that's the way it should be.
