Well, that’s certainly a surprise. I must sound like a broken CD stuck on repeat. Either that or I have no concept of time whatsoever. It seems like school ended just the other day and suddenly, it’s the end of August and children everywhere are getting ready to go back to school.
Actually, that’s not true. Some children are likely excited to go back to school. Some are trying desperately to savour the remaining days of the summer holidays while others are in complete denial that school is around the corner.
Truth be told, I’ve never been fond of September. I may be an adult now but I still get those ‘OMG’ type dreams every year before September rolls in. Sometimes I’m stuck on a never-ending escalator and can’t get off while everything that I want to and need to do float by out of reach. Other times I’m at my locker trying to find my next class only to arrive late or unprepared for a test.
And yet, I was such a good kid!
Well, what can I say?
Luckily, I’ve embraced my own childhood experiences and have tried to make the whole transition back to school a little smoother for my own child. She’s had plenty of time to relax and play during the summer but we also tried to keep a general routine of events that included some homework time. Thankfully, she’s always loved homework books so she’ll independently work on a few pages every day in between other activities.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll continue to have fun (mind you, it’s not like the fun stops once September rolls in!) and enjoy time together as a family. We still have a few more things to do:
- *Trip to the dentist for a checkup
- *Trip to the optometrist for a checkup
- *Getting a much needed haircut
- *Trip to the doctor for a checkup
Yes, fun times….
p.s. if you haven’t arranged any of those appointments yet, be sure to get in them in before school starts!
