Throwback Thursday – You MIGHT Survive

Since I’ve been caught up in either celebrating or mourning the start of the school year (depending on how the morning drop-off went), I think it’s a good week to do a throwback that reminds us weary parents (and those who are not parents, but are weary from hearing us parents complain about our kids’ school-related issues) where all this academic effort is headed.

The leaves are turning orangey.   WalMart and Target are stocked to the ceiling with markers and notebook paper.  School is in the air.  And, so is a great evil.Humor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Gina Valley Laugh Log facebook pinterest tweets twitter

Along with the clean, white sneakers and brand new lunch pails comes the seemingly endless parade of parent informational meetings.  Just typing that is nearly enough to trigger a migraine in me.

Laugh Log is a roundup of (surprise!) stuff that made me laugh recently.  Sometimes it’ll have stuff that made me giggle or think or cry or say ‘Awww’ or wish I had thought of it first.

I decided to go with Laugh Log because I Saw This Stuff Online Or In Real Life And It Made Me Laugh Or Think or Cry Or Say ‘Awww!’ Or Wish I Had Thought Of It First was too long for a title.

I may have to stop driving my kids to school.

It’s bad for my spiritual development.

I am seriously close to turning into a sailor. Maybe even a person who can make a sailor blush.

I believe it is time for some honesty in parenting.

We do a lot of things for our kids.  Uncountable things.   Infinitely many actions on their behalf.

We have several dogs.  We love them all very, very much.

One of them is named Douglas.

Douglas is an idiot.  I mean that in the nicest possible way.

Often when I am looking at Douglas I say to him, “It’s a good thing you’re pretty.”

He is pretty.  He’s a labHumor Funny Humorous Family Life Love Laugh Laughter Parenting Mom Moms Dad Dads Child Kid Kids Children Son Sons Daughter Daughters Brother Brothers Sister Sisters Grandparent Grandma Grandpa Grandparents Grandfather Grandmother Gina Valley Dog Dogs Pet Pets Name Forget Smart Dumb Douglas and saluki mix with shiny black fur that is soft like a rabbit’s.   His mouth always looks like it’s smiling.  He has a long tail with a dangling,

School? AGAIN? Really?

School? AGAIN? Really?

So, it was a very smooth blast off for the first day of school today.

And, by smooth, of course, I mean, NOT SMOOTH AT ALL!

Do they have to go to school again tomorrow?  Is that really necessary?  If so, can they just spend the night there?  ‘Cause this was not a fun morning.
