Tuesday is the first day of school! From a parent’s perspective, Mike’s top five best things about the first day of school.
#5. Finally back to lying around in your hammock, eating bonbons watching Ellen and Dr. Oz all day (isn’t that what you do when they go to school?)!
#4. Hearing yourself think for the first time since late June.
#3. If you tidy-up somewhere, it will stay tidy (for at least 90 minutes today).
#2. Reminding the kids all the things they did this summer, so they don’t answer the question, “what did you do this summer?” with “nothing”.
#1. Looking forward to a quiet house next week, so you don’t miss Mike & Ashley calling your name on the payroll game.
From a student’s perspective, Mike’s top five best things about the first day of school.
#5. It’s not so much “the first day” as “the first 90 minutes of school”.
#4. You’re not behind in homework yet!
#3. The Lulu Lemon logo you sewed to your Superstore free headband still looks great.
#2. Nobody knows who you are yet. It’s a street-cred do-over.
#1. It’s the one day of the year, your locker is clean.
