I’m Exhausted

So my kids started back to school last Tuesday, and instead of being completely rested I’m exhausted. It is all due to the school bus!!!

Out of the 4 mornings this week the bus has not stopped at my son’s bus stop to pick him up, it has’nt even drove past his stop. So then I have had to drive him and the girls to school, and of course the girls are in the back of the car crying because they want to go on the bus. Then on Wednesday, the girls get out an hour earlier than the rest of the week, and the bus showed up 30mins late to bring them home. Hopefully by next week it will all be on schedule. So instead of getting anything done this week, I have been camped out at bus stops. Here are the girls on their first day of school.



 Of course my son will not let me take a photo of him, he’s 12, and that is just not cool!!!!

Although I did manage to get his hair cut short without a fight. I just rubbed his head and said “I like your hair long, you look so cute!!!” The next morning he asked to go to the hairdressers, I could’nt get him in the car fast enough, and he cut it short. Works every time, tell the TWEEN’s you like it or they are cute, and they will do the opposite.

    Your girls look so cute once more, and it actually seems as if they’re pretty happy to be back to school – are they? That thing with the bus sounds like a real nightmare indeed – fingers crossed that it’ll be on schedule from now on!
