Being a Mom

Do not forget to fetch my daughter

Do not forget to fetch my daughter

Do not forget to fetch my daughter has become my favourite sentence since my daughter started Grade 1 last week I am a walking, breathing alarm clock for her daddy and I want him standing by the gate when she gets out (talk about obsessive mommy).

Also received term 1 calendar I like was excuse who is going to school me or her, because it really feels like it’s back to school for me too, I used to ask my colleague why she has a diary she can just remember it now I fully understand the purpose of writing in a dairy all those activities, parents’ meeting and what not and she is only in Grade 1 goodness.

At the end of the day I am so tired from work, homework and dinner that I will only manage to make her lunch box in the morning and this week is the worst because they are training for sports with the huge competition happening end of the month which means it’s all white shorts, sneakers, and T-shirt I am not looking forward to washing them.

Which genius came up with the idea that kids need to wear white clothes for sports?

Mommies how do you keep sane from all this school thing and then having to write for the blog because I swear I am drowning I try to work on my blog over the weekend, but with the chores by the time I remember its Sunday evening time to get ready for Monday.

    Daddies too! I’m a UK-based stay at home dad (although I have appeared ion the SAFA media a few times). You’ll find me in the school yard every day. That diary is absolutely essential. It’s a huge change when kids start school. Good luck! #BrilliantBlogPosts

    Sounds like me, I’m terrified Daddy will forget something, he’s far too relaxed for my liking (maybe I should take a leaf out of his book haha). I blog when I can and TRY not to panic when it doesn’t get done. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays! Kaye xo

    Oh I am far too relaxed for my own good, I am the one who is late, who forgets kit, who forgets the library book – I am making a pointed effort now I have my calendar and have written everything meticulously down for the last week. We’ve been on time for everything!
