After years of scrambling to make beds, make lunches, sign forms, get myself ready for the day, walk the dog, feed the parrot, and simultaneously make breakfast, I decided this year to do things differently. The boys make their own lunches (less waste if they make what they actually want to eat - who knew?!), they tidy up the kitchen, & we don't walk out the door until they've helped with the chores. They are all big, which has it's pluses & minuses, but if you eat three times as much as me, you can prepare at least one meal for yourselves! I propose double decker PBJ's. Maybe you have your own ideas. If so, please feel free to post! Have a great first week of school, Everyone!
