Back to School Survey!

Do you love or loathe back to school time? Which shortcuts do you take in order to get out the door? (You totally saw that ketchup spot and ignored -- we’ve been there.) Does your husband pitch in on packing lunch and nagging about homework? How worried are you about gun violences at your kid’s school?

Take our short back-to-school survey (it only takes a few minutes, we promise!), and then check back to find out how you compare to other moms.

Can I say a bit of both?  I'm so ready to have the house to myself, but not looking forward to the rigid schedule, homework, morning chaos of getting them to the bus, etc.

I like the laid back few weeks of summer. My kids were always so busy, it made things tough. I like my kids at home, always did and always thought school started too early, Aug 26th this year.

We are on day two and the morning chaos was NOT fun this morning.  It's probably the thing I like least about getting back to school.  My boys do not do well in the morning and I feel like I'm a constant grouch trying to get them out the door on time.  Ugh!

I agree that school does start too early for some.  I wish they'd start it after Labor Day here like they do in other areas.  It's just too hot still in August!
