So if Pinterest has taught me anything, it’s that I majorly fail as a mother. And I’m okay with that. My children may not have picture perfect matching First Day of School outfits, but they know that they’re loved. And they know their mom is crazy happy for them to go back to school. Hooray!
We didn’t have that elaborate First Day picture on the porch with their grades displayed on darling little chalkboards. In fact, we didn’t have any First Day pictures at all! But we DID have “the night before the first day of school” pictures with hastily scrawled signs on cardboard, because that is how we roll.
Happy new school year to you all, my darlings! May you find the joy you seek.
