An Ode to Back to School

'Twas the night before the first day of school and all through the house
Not a creature was happy, especially not Lucia, our mouse.
The backpacks were hung in the locker room with care
While Mommy was secretly really hoping for some time to do her hair. 

The children were all nestled all snug in my bed
While visions of homework gave them nightmares in their head
With Bachelor in Paradise on the TV and wine in my glass
I am very excited to say they are going back to school at last!

 *And like every other parent who is needing school to start soon because the kids have gone bezeerk, I am truly excited (not just for the quiet time for me) but to see them start a new year and all the wonderful learnings that will come with it.

Meanwhile, it's time to talk back to school lunches.

I'm posting over here on the Blended Blog today!
