Tomorrow is the first day of school...and I'm not going to be in the classroom! It was such a treat to go shopping for supplies with my daughters, and not have to worry about what I needed for my class. I got to just focus on their needs and get excited along with them about stuff like new backpacks and binders and pencil cases. Instead of snapping at them to wait because Mommy has to find something for her class, I just followed their lead and watched with glee as they checked off each item on the lists their teachers gave them. I was not especially thrilled when it was time to pay the guy at the register, but the process of hunting down the items was more fun than I'd imagined.
