Dear World, Re: the start of the school year.

Just, FYI: Not every parent loves it when their kids go back to school.

Every single year (indeed, after just the two weeks of winter break, or even the week of spring vacation), I miss my kids when they go back. I know this is what we do, and it’s ok, and we get into a rhythm and I would never even consider home-schooling because that wouldn’t work for us on any level — but, just, you know. I hate that people act like I should be giddy to have them out of the house.

I miss ’em, I truly do.

PS On a not entirely unrelated note: Spend enough time looking at the word “school” and it just starts to look weird, mirite?

    “School” is all about inserting things into the headbones of children. It’s practically “Skull” when you get down to it. 😉

    School and squirrel are two words that look weird if you stare at them long enough.
