Back To School Blog Hop Party August 26th


Time for the Back To School Blog Hop Party and I am so excited!  Why you ask?  Many reasons:
1.  I no longer have to purchase school clothing and supplies!
2.  Although he was in his early 40's my so finally graduated from College!
3.  I love to buy things for my granddaughter and grandson all through the year and maybe it is for school and maybe it isn't, but as the "grandma" I can get away with it!!
4.  No, pushing, shoving, yelling, badgering, money beggin', lost books, dog ate my homework, "it's his fault",  "Mom, where is my ???", softball practices, basketball practices, band practices, "I'm going to ???'s house and will be home later" (later has a broad meaning to a 16 year old), need gas money, have a date, can I, can we, and the ever famous "I Don't Want To Get Up"  and  "Mooooooooom"!!!

6. Sleeping in because "I Don't Want To Get Up"!

But on the other hand it is a bittersweet deal when I hear the school bus pass the house I feel lonesome,

hearing the kids play while waiting on the bus,

mom's and dad's gathering up to chat while waiting with the kids,
meeting the parents at school functions, being room mother,
cub scouts, boy scouts,
trombones, guitars,
kazoo's honking and going to the Blue and Gold Cub Scout banquet and listening to one of the young men playing "The Entertainer" on the piano only to find out it is your son and not having a clue he could play the piano (we didn't have a piano, so where did he learn this? It is still a mystery to me).  A Teen Boy Playing a Piano - Royalty Free Clipart Picture

Yep, there are times when I still miss being a mom to my little boys, but they are great men now and I am so proud of them.
