I am sitting here with my 2nd and 3rd graders after their first day of school fighting them to do "homework" (all I'm asking is for them to write about their first day of school and I am getting the biggest fight. Oy!).
L and me have decided that I should get off work early and pick the boys up from school instead of putting them in an after-school program. I love that I am going to get to spend more time with them but today has not been what I've expected. I am realizing quite quickly that the routines we had over the summer and the last school year are not going to work. It's time for new routines.
My goals for the 2013-2014 school year:
1. Somehow magically get my children to LOVE homework
2. Start making dinner every night and having a sit-down family dinner
3. Find time to get a workout in
4. Get better at meal planning
I'm sure there's more but my 3rd grader is actually crying because "writing is too hard". If he had any idea, huh?
Happy back to school to all you parents out there!
