My girlfriend and mother of three is throwing a little mom party to celebrate the start of school. She’s calling it “Mimosas in the Morning” and has invited about 15 moms over from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. to toast all the kids being back in school.
She’s actually doing it Tuesday morning instead of Monday morning because one friend’s child didn’t start school until Tuesday. That’s just as well because I feel like I have a ton of things to do to get back into the school grove.
My youngest starts kindergarten today and for the first time in 11 years I won’t have a little one at home with me! (More on this to come!! Check out first day of kindergarten and first day of middle school photos on our Facebook page later today. Also post your back to school photos as well. Also I will be writing tomorrow on this crossroads in my life – no more babies at home, what’s a mom to do?)
I kind of want to sneak in a morning movie this week. We’ll see if I get my other work done.
What are your back-to-school first day traditions for the kids? What about for yourself? Do you sneak back into bed? Do you work in a quickie with hubby after they are all out of the door? Or just enjoy your quiet house for a few minutes before heading off to work?
