Why doesn't Kindergarten come w/ a warning - CAUTION: Parents will feel completely exhausted and emotionally drained by the end of each day. Do not try to do more than one activity in a day until you are used to the new schedule.
That being said, I did not realize that taking on a new position as a Teacher's Aide at Noah's Ark preschool was literally going to kick my behind, and we haven't even started school. Just 2 days a week. It's still hard work. I'm in mid-process of putting up our welcoming bulletin board - it's really cute. I'm just going to see if I can make it even cuter - and of course finish it by noon on Thursday. Now remember, I don't go back until tomorrow.
And what will I do this afternoon before picking up Hannah? I will take a nap. I much needed, not sleeping through the night, midafternoon nap.
