Back to School – ALREADY? EEK! I guess so. My nephsons in Nashville start back to school August 1. Thankfully our kids don’t start until the end of August, so we have a wee bit more time to sleep in and enjoy the lazy days of summer.
Even though we have a month left until school start, I guess I should be getting back into the swing of things, you know like showering our kids regularly and making sure they have school clothes.
My friends at Plum District recently did a survey on moms and back to school. Here is what they found:
YES! 39% are excited 26% are relieved – I guess I fall into the 8% sad.
57% say yes. Yes, I’m one of THOSE moms. And confession: I’m guilty of pre-printing notes ahead of time. My daughter reminds me when I don’t include a lunch note. “Mom, did you forget something.”
64% front door photo shoot (that’s us)
35% sweet treat for lunch
33% walk to classroom
16% walk to bus stop
54% say mom
70% FALSE – Summer is my favorite.
37% dinner time
5% after school
70% from home
20% school cafeteria
2% off campus
Thanks Plum District! Interesting to see how other moms view back to school.
