Back 2 Skool

The RHOK


It's McLinky Monday over at The RHOK and this Mondays Q is Back to school happy or sad?

Well let me see how many ways I can dissect this question...

With B2S come new clothes but not for me...a few weeks ago we took the hellions to pennys for new undies and bra-ers....I proudly places my new bra and granny panty on the counter when everyone looks at me and someone I'm not saying which someone eric asked me if I had some higher education in my future....

With B2S comes new supplies like paper,pens in every color,rulers,cool shiny folders and notebooks but not for me...I may or may not have accidentally on purpose dropped a bunch of green pens in one, I'm not saying which one Jessica of the kiddos carts implying you reallllly need these right and then she snitched on me...traitor

With B2S comes yearbooks that cost $100, $15 parking permits, making sure lunch accounts have money in them, joining PTA(at 3 different schools), cute motorcycle cops in the school zones,waking up EARLY to make a hot nutritious breakfast so I can help my kiddos get the best start on each day... this so applies to me because my wallet will be raided, I will be up with the roosters-making whatever each child would like for breakfast and I will be smiling and waving at the cute motorcycle cop on my way to drop off at school....by week 2 I will be... throwing a piece of bread and bottle of water at each child as they stumble to my car with boogies in their eyes because they wouldn't wash their face then have to turn around and come home at least twice because someone forgot something like brushing their teeth or a school ID and I am no longer smiling and waving at the not so cute motorcycle cop as I try to get my childrens to school on time without getting a ticket...Homeschoolers feel free to mock me....

With B2S comes Fall and daylight savings and cooler weather and pumpkins and Halloween and firewood...this really has nothing to do with back to school it just makes me happy....

B2S means I won't have to listen to this type of drivel all day

You doucher pro-nounced dow-sher
You dork
Your a Douche Bag-pro-nounced just like massengil would
You whore-DON'T call me the H word!
I'm rubber you are glue bounce off me and stuck on you...over and over and over

Here are the culprits on their first day of school last year...my my my have they ever changed



and so on and so on...just keepin it real folks...they are teens and while I am very blessed that they don't chase each other around with kitchen knives or resort to physical violence...their vocab arguments are insane....

I think I was suppose to be answering a question and my answer is no I am not happy, okay maybe a teeny tiny bit that they are going back to school...and I can tell you why I am not happy...quite simply...it means I am getting older...

My confession for today: I swear I am not vain! But my aching bones and wrinkles tell me otherwise and I really wanna visit a Chiropractor...he can fix anything right?


Need help with a post today? Go visit the ladies of the RHOK and link up

  1. "Don't call me the H word" - laugh out loud, girl.

    Chiropractor visit is not vain. I want Botox. Now. Wait, can they do that as well?

    Two more weeks and counting for elementary here. Another month for preschool. That last sentence is why I need the Botox.

  2. Love your post. I'm slowly getting back to blogging, but I haven't posted my back to school yet. Too many fires to put out. I'm going to learn a lot from you about teenagers. I swear my 5 yrs old thinks she is 15.

  3. That vocab lesson is classic! :)
    Thanks for the laughs today, Georgie!

  4. I found one thing that is AWESOME in regard to Kyle's turning 18--School registration was MUCH cheaper this year, and I am thrilled that the $ in the lunch account will last more than a month.

    Love, love, love the chiropractor!

    Have a Happy Monday :)

  5. Love your post!!! I know....school! UGH! And my oldest (16 year old son) seems to be turning into the BIGGEST drama queen I know! Althought...he thinks he is billy-bad-ass! UGH! Does it EVER end!!!!????
    Thank God I have a little cutie going into pre-k...that will give me something to smile (CRY) about, huh?!

  6. LOL! Loved don't me the H-word!

    Girl, I don't know how you do it with three teenagers. There's no amount of medication that could help me get through that. LOL!

    Although, mine is close with a preschooler and a teen! You would think they would have nothing to fight about... you would think.

    Thanks for participating with The RHOK this week! I always look forward to reading your answer. =)

  7. BWAHHAHAHAHA!! Oh Georgie, I think your kids and my kids would be able to take over a small country with their verbal warfare. And mine are quite a bit younger than yours! I think we've done a fabulous job raising them, girl! *high five*

    Thanks for playing along today!

  9. The aging I get from a year is SO not anywhere near as bad as the aging I get sitting through a summer with unoccupied teenagers.

    I'm going to shove them out the door.

  10. school is a money suck. that's for sure. don't you live BA? we are house - hunting - it'd be great if you could steer me clear of the ghetto.

  11. That is the sad part of our children, growing up and moving on with their lives. You will survive and one day look back and laugh at yourself.

  12. You crack me up!

    I thought I was the only one that tried to my own collection of B2S clothes, with the kiddies. A girl after my own heart, you are!

  13. EVERYONE should get new goodies for the beginning of a new school year--especially you since you are the one forking out the dough.

    Your kids are too funny--just think of the peace and quiet that you'll have once they are back.

    Did you still want any of the storage boxes that I had on one of my posts??

    Have a good one.

  14. Back to school?

    I guess I'd better look out for school zones.

    I can't understand what teenagers are saying these days. I'm know I'm old. ;-)

  15. Thanks for the laugh! You're the Super-Mom-Bomb!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog today<3

  16. Keep it real Georgie. B2S is stressful.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I don't think I can agree with you. Back to school was always a much heralded and totally looked forward to day in my house. I think there may have even been horn blowing and confetti tossed, but it's been a while.
    Hope you're not too stressed this year. You should get the 'driver' to tote everyone else. Then you could sleep in. ;)

  18. Hi Georgie! Thanks for stopping by my blogs and leaving comments!

    So do NOT miss the B2S... or the teenage fighting, of course having two boys it could get a bit wild involving bb guns, wrestling matches in the livingroom, etc.

    I love your previous post on "if you knew me". Hang in there, girl! You're not old, you are just getting better :)

  19. I can totally relate to back to school and now my 5 yr old gets to start in the Fall...I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing...see she has a mouth on her like no other. My older ones, 17 and 15 were never never mouthy like this one. I say she is spoiled and it is totally my husband's fault, LOL ok my fault too, but man...she just doesn't know when to shut her trap and then becomes so ummm out of control, so I hope school will help her in that department because I am running out of patience!

  20. I was so glad when my kids got to HS and no one needed specific school supplies! Just notebooks, pens and pencils. I'm not so ready to go back because I'm going back alone...My baby's going to college and, well, I'm just not ready for school to start with because I haven't done all those projects that sounded doable in May!

  21. Throwing a piece of bread and water at them by week 2...now that's real! ;)

  24. Just wait til your BABY is in college! Sigh!

  25. Teenagers and their conversations. They are so funny! I've been a volunteer youth director for nearly 2 years and I still can't get over some of the things kids say.

    Enjoyed the post! :)

  31. OMG. I am SOO happy that my kids are back in school. I think this is the first year that I just couldn't WAIT. Kids, too. This summer was just LONG.

    Oh! I started seeing a chiropractor for the first time about a month ago. My headaches are nearly gone! I squishy heart the chiro.

  32. Hi there! Newly following you! Can't wait to see more!

  33. You are the funniest lady!!! As a "non morning" person myself I was laughing so hard at the week 2 description!!!!! I so wish I could be a cheery energetic mom every morning butcat last it was day 2 for us today and I was already hiding my non makepvface (except for lipgloss) behind big dark sunglasses and my hair tucked into a cute baseball hat!

  34. I hate being called the H word too! You are not getting old, your kids are.

    ReplyDelete
  35. And THAT'S why I made sure my daughter went to a school with uniforms!! Two lasted the entire year. I was frugal, she never had to figure out what to wear, and still we fought...go figure.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I am finally back after reading your post (now that the kids are out of my face and I can read in peace). Way funny. I know I am not alone with the kids fighting. The words my 12 year old has learned (and how to correctly apply) would be impressive if it were appropriate for Mom to applaud such behavior. Hearing it over and over, however, makes me insane! I wish I could say I was happy about back to school. But alas, I am a non-trad college student and I start a week before my kids do! I miss the days when I rejoiced as my tax dollars were put to good use (taking those people away from me for a few hours of peace and quiet)! Enjoy the fall!!!

  37. This post was hilarious! Love your list of drivel the teens say. I should notate what mine say sometime. It's interesting how they make up their own words/language.

  38. Hi Georgie,
