You know your a school mum when…

Hey readers,

My eldest is in year one in primary school and I have noticed some things that happen once you become a school mum. Here are some of the signs you are definitely a school mum.

Mornings

are a slapdash affair, trying to remain calm but more frequently than not losing your s**t about the fact, your child can take 30 bloody mins and still not got their shoes on.

Letters, Letters, Letters

How many? the never ending forms of dates of book sales to trips and parents evening. It is non-stop and at times a bit overwhelming trying to keep on track of it all.

Homework

 is now something you have to get done and let’s face it on a Sunday night mad dash to get something coherent down.

Social Pressure

Knowing that you are losing the walls of protection of your child and social pressure is a big player now and that it is just the start.

Money

Having to keep a check on making sure that you have paid for XYZ. You basically need a diary to keep on top of all the payments and dates that are happening.

Lost Property

Constant arguments of wondering how your son could lose this and that. Bringing home someone else’s jumper or at the end of the term accidentally losing his pumps from three weeks ago and not mentioning it to us, which coincidentally it is now half term holiday so you can’t do naff all about it.

PTA

 is there pestering you every week about this or that just so they can look good amongst all us other parents who are totally below there standards.

Assembly

Having to sit and listen to this and that committee every week it is something, why can’t they just let kids be kids and actually learn to fail instead of constantly trying to see positive in everything.

School Run

Arguing with your spouse with who is going to collect your child as you know it is mayhem and you can’t stand the small talk waiting for your little child to be returned to you.

Statistics

When teachers can’t be arsed to listen to you and feel totally helpless because all they see is one side of our child and they seem more bothered about attendance.

  1. Being a mom of school aged kids does have it’s challenges. We spend a LOT of time on homework, and are always missing mittens or other pieces of clothing. Now that my girls are a bit older it’s gotten a little better!

  2. Ah, yes. I’m 7 months into my school mum life. I seem to have found myself at assembly every Friday afternoon and am now about to start being a reading volunteer – I’m not sure I even know who I am anymore! 😀 Thanks for joining us at #TriumphantTales, hope you’ll come back again on Tuesday!

  3. Yes to all of these. I loose my S**** most mornings as my children have no sense of urgency whatsoever. For us is not so much letter but emails. Lots and lots of emails constantly!!!! Thank you for sharing with #StayClassyMama
