The waning days of summer mean our bored baby walruses – errr, children – are headed back to school.
Finally! BUH BYE, children!
So, let's have a moment of silence for the numbered days of, "Are we there YET?" and, "Ugh, we never do anything fun!"
Of course, the start of the school year means it's time for that dreaded scavenger hunt: back-to-school shopping.
While you numbly meander through the aisles of box stores, or slowly lose feeling in your mouse hand while loading up your virtual shopping cart, know that we salute you, and we honor the struggle.
It’s the New Year, and I have been doing a lot of thinking. I want to say, with all of my heart and all of my soul, that I am sorry. I want apologize for anything (and everything) I have said or done that made you feel less-than or sad or small.
This year I am resolving, with a twist. There will be no diet, exercise, less swearing and drinking, "more church" kind of resolutions. This year I'm simply letting go of the things that are just not productive nor conducive to my life. This is the year I give up several of my hard-earned mom-related titles.
Surround yourself and your kids with piles of magazines and update vision boards for the fresh, new year to come. If nothing else came from this evening together, we exercised our creativity and bonded while reenacting some of the over-the-top advertisements we came across.
