Oh man, you guys. School starts here in a week. A WEEK!
Anyone else having a bazillion thoughts running through their brains, including but not limited to:
- AAAAAAAHHH!!! WHERE DID SUMMER GO?!
2. Did we make the most of every magical moment? Were any moments actually magical? Were too many of them magical? Did I WASTE THIS SUMMER BY MAKING IT TOO/NOT ENOUGH MAGICAL?
3. When did so many kids develop allergies to so many things and how on earth can I pack food for my kid if even hummus is now off-limits?
The end of summer makes me have ALLTHEFEELS. You get me?
Anyway, to make your transition back into the ordered chaos that is drop-offs, pick-ups, permission slips, and packed lunches, August’s Mommy Link Round-Up features a back to school theme. Whether you love it or hate it, you’ll find a friend here.
Feeling overwhelmed? Let Stacey Jackson Gagnon give you a few laughs over at Twas the Night Before School Starts. Her adorable family is pictured below, and also can we make #tgibts (Thank Goodness It’s Back to School) a thing? Please?
From Stacey Philpot, a reminder to be kind, since some moms have it harder than others when it comes to back to school. Welcome to the Mommy Wars
From teacher Sarah May, I Hate August
From Scary Mommy, Teachers, Save Me
And from Kristina Slaney, What’s on Your Mom Shirt?
My mom shirt would totally say, “PUT YOUR SHOES ON.” What about yours?
