Then I get the Back-to-School Night reminders and I’m thinking “ I hate Back to School Night.” I know this is a surprise since I’m 110% about my kids. However, as a single mom with 2 kids who go to school in Virginia and Maryland while we live in DC means that I have a crazy commute during rush hour. In addition to having to pick one of the boys up first , get back into DC to pick up my other son, and then return to the school. Are you feeling the WOW factor yet? If not, let me add the Back to School Nights are on a Wednesday and Thursday.
So I pose the question to myself “What’s important about Back-to-School Night when I meet with my sons teachers this month for Parent /Teacher Conferences? Why do they have so many meetings?”
