It’s three weeks into the school year and I am thankful for a schedule that is more predictable. However, I am reminded that I really dislike making school lunches, my schedule of working late hours works against me, and my days of helping the kids with homework has been replaced with Google (that is actually a good thing as my knowledge of calculus and physics are limited).
My kids are in high school. They leave the house at 7:15 am and since they are both playing sports they get home around 5:30 pm. I spend my day working and doing regular house stuff but at some point during the day (at least a couple times a week) I find myself in their rooms, just sitting on their beds. How did they get so big? I remember their first days of school so clearly and in a couple years they will be in college.
I look around their rooms and wish I could go back in time. Sometimes I read through old school work, look through their book shelves, or flip through photo books. I am thankful that my kids can easily access their photos and step back in time too. With all the pressures kids face today it is pretty awesome that photos of their childhood, vacations, sports, etc., can instantaneously bring a smile to their face and help them decompress.
It is back to school for children everywhere – how do your kids decompress after a long (or short) day at school? As a parent, do you have your own coping strategy? Have you used photos as a tool to help your children (or you) relax? Share your ideas – I would love to hear them.
