Greetings from homeworkland!
It's not so nice here in homework land. The air is kind of stuffy and everyone seems grumpy. There are no disgustingly cheesy tourist t-shirt shops where I could buy a t-shirt that say " I went to Homeworkland and all I got was this lousy t-shirt", homeworkland is not cool enough for cheesy tourist t-shirt shops.
This is the part of going back to school I dread the most. The crazy thing is a few blog posts back I swear I said "Yeah Summer is over and life goes back to normal", why didn't you punch me?? Why didn't you say "hey you sill cow, going back to school means months in homeworkland".
Doing homework with my kids has never been fun, I have friends with crazy kids who actually enjoy doing their homework...that's right I said they enjoy it. My children not so much, my children will do anything and I mean anything to scrape by. I can only imagine that this is a genetic abnormality passed down to my children from my side of the family seeing as I stabbed my mother with a number 2 pencil in the hand one evening when I was around 8 years old as she tried to help me with my homework. Luckily my kiddos have yet to hear this story and so my appendages are all safe, but my emotional state of being is not as lucky.
If we make it to the end of the year, no scratch that, if we make it to the point where Dad shows up and joins us on our extended vacation to homework land I will be amazed.
