School is Starting: A Letter to My Kids

School is starting so I thought I would write a letter to my kids. We can all use a little sarcasm in our day, right?

Dear Kids,

It’s hard to believe school is starting soon and summer is over. I thought we should take this opportunity to go over a few things. Since it’s a new year, and you’ve had a busy summer, I wanted to make sure we’re all on the same page.

No need for unnecessary arguments.

It's been a hard summer for you and I know we're asking a lot of you. You've gone to over-priced camps, taken tennis and golf lessons and spent time at the beach. Not to mention sleeping late, binging on Netflix and hanging out at the pool with your friends.

I want to make sure we’re all on the same page. No need for any miscommunication or confrontation. Lets start the year off right.

1. When you come home, please feel free to leave your book bag, gym bag and shoes in the hall or kitchen. The house will be clean by the time you get home, so messing it up again is fine. It will give me something to do tomorrow, when you're at school. It makes the hours when you're at school go by faster. If I can't be with you, at least I can be with your mess.
