It is time to be honest. Time to admit I think I am sucking at this whole school mum thing. I really thought I was going to rock it. I was going to walk all over it. I was going to be this mum that went to P&C meetings, and also volunteered in the school canteen. I was going to car pool with other mums, and be all over the lunchbox thing.
But no.... I was late to pick Keely up on her second day. I had to wake Taj up from his sleep, and I was in the middle of working my butt off in that time I had to work it off. (Keely is finishing kindy at 2 for the next two weeks, and it cuts right into Taj's sleep and the whole work thing I have going on). I turned up with Taj in just a nappy, and I had bare-feet. The only mum with no shoes on! I offered to car pool with another mum, and then realised that I cannot fit another seat in my car, and that also Keely is dropped off to school by her father. I am so not the cool school mum!
I obviously will work out a routine for the next 2 weeks, or maybe I will just drown in the mum and school thing. When it changes to finishing at 3 I am sure I will cruise through and work it out. But until then you can picture me drowning in the ocean with those arms wiggling in the air. And to have a little more of a laugh, picture me in my knee high socks and orange salts with my crazy granny glasses on. (Not sure if you can save me on this one Sophie)!
And just so you know I have only just started washing Keely's school uniforms for tomorrow morning. The weather has changed, (picture buckets of water falling from the sky), and I have a feeling they may not dry. I completely forgot that the mum and school thing happens on the weekend, and you need to prep for the week ahead.
For now I will say I am not the cool kid in the playground, but I sure hope that one day I will be!
