Yep, I can do it...
Oldest just needs a haircut - and maybe some protein bars to take for lunches. Sadly lacking from the public school's cafeteria menu is a vegetarian option. Okay, never actually bothered me before... but I'd like to see my son not starve himself this year - really.
Second needs a haircut - a ride to the school for registration - a check for some unheard of amount of money covering everything from book deposits to locker rental - shoes - pants - shirts - socks - unmentionables... apparently he's been nude for the past 2 months, the family has been too caught up in NetFlicks to notice I guess.
Third needs a swift kick in the hind quarters. And maybe a few pairs of pants and a shirt or two. and a haircut (I'm seeing a pattern here)
Fourth and Fifth already went shopping with me... and being girls they can get away without a haircut this week. Fourth needed all SORTS of clothes (stop growing for crying out loud) and Fifth got one shirt because everything still fits (start growing for crying out loud).
Isn't it nice to know that no matter what, I'll always have something to complain about?
and then... when they're all settled and we're in a good homework
and if any of your children come home and mention the kids they saw at school that looked like orphaned refugees... well, just tell them that their mom loves them anyway!
