With orthodontist appointments, parent/teacher meetings, open houses, band practices, school schedules, doctors appointments, birthday parties, flute lessons and homework assignments (for me! from the teachers) … you know school has started.
I don’t remember my parents being as harried with my school activities.
The first few days of school, and even before school started, all three of my children came home with homework assignments for me and my husband.
“Please describe in a million words or less your child.”
“Please create a collage, write a poem or tell a story about your child”
Me? I thought I was finally done with schoolwork when I graduated college.
I guess I understand why the teachers want to know more about my children. Our school district has thousands of students, so getting to know them on a more personal level can help enhance communication.
But I didn’t like the nervous feeling that rushed back when I was told I had homework!
