The prodigal mom returns

Once upon a time there was a mom who had a blog.

She used to post something every day, or at least every other day.

Then her children both started high school and she got really, really busy and really, really tired.

The End.

OK, OK, I'm sorry! I have no excuse really. I'm not even sure what to say about what I've been doing. Open houses, Dance booster meetings, carpool, doctor's appointments, making lunches, Nutcracker auditions...oh, and the migraine that I had for 5 days last week didn't help. Brain rot. Ugh.

Also last week, we had a carpool emergency, of sorts. You see, we had a carpool all arranged to drive The Princess and some other students to her school, then I had another carpool arranged to drive The Princess from her school to her ballet studio. It was great...except that the carpool to drive the kids to school had a "problem child" so to speak. It just wasn't working out. So we had to scramble and come up with an alternate solution, which we did, but in the process of creating a new carpool somehow...the "problem child" ended up being left out in the cold. Which was a bit awkward but necessary. Because really, no one anted to be a part of that situation.  And now we are all happy carpool parents and teens (well, obviously not the "problem child" and his parents) but it was a stressful situation for a while.

In other news, The Boy discovered a purple tutu that The Princess used to play dress up with when she was younger. The Boy wore it around the house one afternoon, amusing himself greatly. Unfortunately, that was an afternoon when Mommie Dearest was all migrainey so there aren't  any photographs which I can share with you.

Yesterday, however, The Boy found a new use for the little purple tutu...

The Boy. Amusing himself since 1994.
