Thursday's Thirteen: More on School Daze.




I know I already did a list of things for School, but tomorrow is D-day the first day of school. So I am doing a list of things I have to do to get my daughter off right for the first day of school.




FYI I have a teenage daughter.






  1. Make sure she has a showers the night before school starts so I'm not banging on the door yelling, "Get out of there you going to be late!"


  2. Get her in bed early so she won't drag for the first day of school.


  3. Get some kind of breakfast food to temp her taste buds with, so when she's dosen't want to eat that early. I don't hear the words; "Mom, I'm not hungry yet."


  4. Set alarm clock so I can get up, even though she has an alarm too. This way I can make sure she dosn't sleep through the alarm and I hear the famous line "The allarm didn't go off." Ha!


  5. Make sure I go to bed at a dencent hour too.


  6. Get up get dressed and get the daughter up.


  7. Say, "hurry up" a hundred times.


  8. Say, "Your going to be late" a couple of dozen times or more.


  9. Say, "Did you remember Cell phone?"


  10. Say, "Did you remeber your lunch money?"


  11. Say, "Did you remember to pack everything you might need in your back pack?"


  12. "Eat your breakfast!"


  13. Then finally get the kid out the door in a timely manner so she isn't late to school. My husband will be taking her after spending the night on the graveyard shift.


  14. Bonus: I can relax.

Hi Jen,

The first day of school was yesterday and it went okay, I only had to say hurry up half a dozen times instead of the usuall two dozen, lol.

Hi Savannah,

Well, it's a little different when your the one try get the kids off to school then being the kids. More frustrating.

Hi Robin,

I guess you'll be able to get more done with the little ones in school. I do miss mine though.

Hi Savvy,

It can be a little daunting, but scary not really.

Hi Adelle,

New York city? Yikes!

Now that does sound scary!

Hi Paige,

Thanks, yeah it is.
