End of School Year Grins

The moms over at the Today Show asked: “What puts a smile on your face when celebrating your child’s end of year activities?” So, I answered them. http://allday.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2009/06/11/1962600.aspx

What puts a smile on my face at the end of the school year?

1. I can go back to washing darks and lights, instead of darks, lights and Oh-my-God-you-have-a-game-today!
2. I no longer have to recall 4th grade math.
3. I won’t be the 5th grade’s Forgotten Homework Faxing Service throughout the summer.
4. Knowing I won’t have to go on a treasure hunt for teacher’s requests for toilet paper rolls/empty shoeboxes/string/photos of my family that are more recent than Christmas 2004 for another 10 weeks.
5. I won’t trip over backpacks again until September. (Sandals, water guns and wet swimsuits, yes, but that’s okay for now.)

    Heather,
    If I had cameras in your house, I’d never get to watch the video. Can I Tivo that?

    Thanks for taking the time to read and to comment. We’re all in this together!

    Oh, Jen, I am so glad to know that when my brain cells leave my head and leave me wanting for more(recall, memory, knowledge) , that they end up at your house! Your ability to write what goes through my head many times throughout my day either makes me wonder if you have secret cameras installed in my house or perhaps, as being the mother of boys, we have some sort of connection! Thanks for putting it all down and giving me a chuckle to boot. You perspective and spin on things- providing me a laugh -is truly why I am not joining my other “animal” counterparts in eating my children many days!
