Pro Tip: If your school offers school supply bundles – ORDER IT. It will cost you maybe $10 more, but will save you hours and your sanity. Also, who else has kids that have been wearing the same clothes all week?

As I was posting this, my 9-year-old runs in here to tell me he needs more internet time (thank you, Qustodio for putting some kind of limit on his screen time!)

Anyways, he saw this and said “WAIT, are you telling people to be happy that I have to go back to school?” HA, sorry kid. I love you with all of my heart – here is some extra screen time but yes, I will be happy to have an empty house for a few hours and be able to introvert without kid chaos.
