From dresses and bows to T-shirts and ‘No’s’

I know it sounds ridiculous, but now that our daughter only wants to wear store-bought jeans and T-shirts, I’m having a bit of an identity crisis. When school is back in session, I won’t be the mom who sews cute dresses with matching hair bows.

Exhausted parents, here’s how to hang in there before school starts

I am exhausted. Truly. We are in parental damage control mode, where it’s all about just surviving the next month and getting to the finish line that is Sept. 8 – the first day of school.

Nova Scotia schools will be back in session, and here’s the plan

Charge me triple for school supply fees. Ask me to buy hazmat suits for the class. Enlist me to be a volunteer bus monitor to make sure kids keep their masks on. Anything. Seriously, I will accommodate literally any request, as long as my kids can return to school and have a mostly normal life again.
