Here’s what’s been going on in my brain lately:
I have to remember to schedule a dentist appointment for my kids in fact I need to go to the dentist and did I have a pap smear yet this year not sure but my daughter needs new shoes not the kind with white around the edges because those get really dirty in the playground and I need to sign her back up for dance classes oh yeah when does my son’s soccer season start again I know I read an email somewhere about that but he really likes tennis better than soccer so I think I’ll sign him up for tennis again I really need to work out more and I shouldn’t have had that burger and fries this weekend should I cut bangs I’m getting tired of my hairstyle I think I forgot to send a thank you card for that gift we got in fact I need to remember to buy a gift for the birthday party he’s been invited to I need to make a trip to Costco I should really just make a regular trip to Costco once a week and stock up on all those things we need I hate to go on Saturdays but it’s not so bad during the week is back to school night this Thursday do I bring the kids or do I need a babysitter oh yeah we’ve been invited out with friends on Friday I definitely need a babysitter for that I think the kids eat too many snacks I should really stop the snacking and then maybe they’ll eat better at dinner my son needs to put on weight he’s looking a little skinny in fact he needs new jeans because his are all too short he’s getting so tall we should re-paint his bedroom am I spending enough one on one time with him should I send my daughter to speech therapy she has trouble pronouncing her Ls and her Rs maybe she’s fine she’s just three we should probably take a family photo this year for our Christmas cards what kind of birthday party am I going to throw for my son should we have a big one or just a small party with family he should really have specific chores I’m gonna make him a chart oops my daughter just threw up all over herself in the backseat of the car…
I remember watching Oprah years ago and seeing all those frazzled Moms and thinking “How hard could it be?” That was before I had kids. Hope your days are a little less frazzled than mine are.
Happy Back to School!!
