We survived our brand new back to school schedule last week with a baby, a preschooler, a Kindergartener, a second grader, a fourth grader, a seventh grader, AND a ninth grader.
During the course of the week I did NOT consider changing my name from “Mommy” to anything under the sun other than “Mommy” and I could NOT be heard announcing to no one in particular and everyone in general, “I’m going to use the bathroom. NO ONE FOLLOW ME!”
By week’s end I did NOT feel like this lady.
When someone at Walmart asked, “Are these ALL your children?!” I was NOT tempted to say, “Sir, I have never seen these children before in my life. They all started following me in the parking lot and I decided to let them hang on to my buggy while I push it around the store buying LOTS of toilet paper for no particular reason.”
Nope. Not me. No way.
