Countdown to School

One more month until school starts. Are the rest of you counting down too? Our youngest is starting kindergarten this year. Do you know what that means?

It means that we are no longer paying for daycare, just before and after school care for 2 kids. That’s half the monthly bill we had 3 years ago, before my son started school. It means that we have 1 destination for school events. It means that we have 1 school holiday schedule. It means that at the start and end of the day, I only need to make one stop to drop off both kids as I make my way to work. Which means that I am reclaiming anywhere from 2 to 3 hours of commuting time each and every week by not making 2 stops on the way to work.

I think that it is entirely possible that I am more excited than any other person on the face of the earth, for school to start this fall. Excuse me, I’m going to go do another happy dance.

About dirtyrottenparenting

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.
