It’s funny to see all of the back to school photos posted by friends and family. All of those shining happy faces, new backpacks, new lunch bags, and new haircuts are really just a fantasy for us to hold onto for the rest of the school year.
The reality of back to school looks much more like frazzled scowls, running late, bed head, books falling out of open backpacks, and scuffed shoes.
In our case, back to daycare this morning was full of howls, yowls, whines, trips, falls, and growling. So clearly, no facebook pics from our household today. That’s okay, I know what’s really going on at your house (maybe not today or tomorrow – but for sure next week) and it’s not that different from what went on in mine!
