Time for a Break

Boy, am I glad Son's Christmas break starts tomorrow! What a morning!

I'd forgotten, until this morning, to have Son sign the cards for his bus driver and teacher. At the last possible minute, Son declared he wanted to be cold lunch today, not hot, so I was scrambling to get a lunch packed in less than a minute.

I managed.

Then, just as I'm telling Son to brush his teeth, Daughter decides she needs to get dressed and is parading around in just her Barbie undergarments. And the phone rang. So I multi-tasked, getting Daughter dressed, packing up Son's backpack, and talking to a friend.

Daughter also wanted to go to school with Son; she ran out with her little princess backpack and a sheet of manilla drawing paper. I had to calm her down, telling her she'd be going over to play at a friend's house this afternoon. She seems to be pacified, if only for the moment.

So, yeah, flew down the driveway and got Son on the bus, and now Daughter is yelling at me to get dressed. I will, but not right away. I need some calm time before I venture into the elementary school for the Christmas party.

Twenty-two second graders, all hopped up on sugar and excitement about Christmas.

Think of me from 2:30 to 3:15 today, will you?

Time to fill your water bottle up with something other than water. You are a brave woman.

Is that one of those insanely lib-infested schools where your child cannot take peanut butter for lunch? I mean, what else are you supposed to put in a kids' lunch at the last moment and also what else do you always have on hand when you're out of everything else?

I can't believe that because of a few peanut-allergy whackos, kids can't take peanut butter to school.
It's bad enough the PAW's have ruined it for airline flights.

No, but oddly enough there is a school in the district who wants to ban peanut butter - because of one student. Which begs the question about candy and treats for holidays and so forth.

I should keep this quiet, but so far it looks like this school district is behind the times as far as the whole ACLU crap and all. I mean, in the Scholastic book order books by Max Lucado were being offered! Christian books! (Something that made me happy, let me tell you!)

But, I'll say that I survived the party, although I may never eat Doritos again.
