I Once Believed
Here's an idea, let's review the incomplete list of myths I once believed.
I believed that when my children started school I would have more time.
I believed that with my children in school and not hanging on my leg/arm/back I would make more effective use of my time.
I believed that with a little more time, and being more effective, I would get my house clean, laundry done, and have hot, healthy cuisine to serve my family at least 2 if not 3 nights a week.
I believed that with my children in school I would not feel guilty about spending more time in the gym. See first belief.
I believed that with my children in school I would be able to throw away toys without them noticing.
I believed that I would finish my to-tackle list.
I believed that with the quiet of the house -- noise followed children to school -- that I would have a chance to think intellectual thoughts and not child-provoked nonsense like, "I wonder if that soybean will fit in Mason's nose?"
I believed that while my children were eating lunch away from me I would have an opportunity to eat something other than chicken nuggets for lunch.
Ummmmm, yeah, that about covers it.
PHOTO NOTE: I'm starting the take-a-picture-of-your-child-on-picture-day-before-they-leave-for-school tradition as I failed to follow through on the take-a-picture-of-your-child-on-the-first-day-of-school tradition. This is installment no. 1 of 15 between now and 2025.
