It’s here! It’s here!
It’s the first day of school today! My boy is now a first grader. New classroom, new teacher, new classmates.
And finally, a few hours to myself in the mornings again.
Kindergarten is half-day here in my city, and he was in the afternoon kindergarten class. So that meant mornings with him and then afternoons with my 4yo. Now that he’s in first grade, it means I have a few hours free in the mornings.
What to do? What to do? Chores? Errands? Grocery shopping without someone bugging me to buy some more snacks? A chance to sit down and have some tea in peace? Read a book? Write? Work in the garden? Finally go through all their old toys and donate those they don’t play with?
There’s so much to do. And before long it’s going to be time to pick them up – better get to it.
(Ok must make sure I don’t spend all morning staring at my phone or something mundane like that).
