First Day of School...

......was not horrible. The night before school....was like a really scary horror movie that was never ending. The boys were hyped up. They were excited and nervous and antsy and sleepless and any other word you could use that would equal super duper hyper-ness. In other words, they drove me crazy. We attempted shower/bedtimes around 8:00 and lovely enough that didn't get done until closer to 9ish. Then bed. Lets just say that they were tucked in around 9:00. They actually went to sleep around 11:30 and not for lack of me trying to get them to calm any means necessary. Eventually though they finally went to sleep after threatening to take their toys away, possible spankings and hollers until I may or may not have mentioned I was running away until they decided to behave a little convincing.
But this morning they were up before me and ready to roll with hair done and new clothes on. I woke up to them watching TV and eating Poptarts. And apparently they had a great day at school, so that is even better. I hope the rest of the year goes as well.

This is after school....they were a little more polished before school but you get the point :)


  1. I'm so happy to know I'm not the only one with kids way too hyper the night before school! Mine were the same way and I was too honestly.

  2. Ha yeah I remember being that way when I was little...and yeah a little that way when I started back to school. Guess it comes with the territory! :)
