Back to School – Do Mothers Thank You?

School holidays are one of the most anticipated moments throughout the school year by children. But what about the parents? Usually schedules are made in advance or family trips are scheduled for those who manage to take a few days off from work to enjoy together with the puppies. But when it’s not possible, parents have to go out of their way to keep this kids busy , without complaining and having fun. For this, they count on the help of family members such as grandparents and uncles and when they do not have this option, they end up opting for the vacation school. For children the vacation time is delicious, but for most parents it ends up being an exhaustive phase where the seconds for the return to school count.

Children on vacation demand even more attention from their parents, who, due to the daily routine of adults, end up being complicated if they do not take their time totally free for them. Getting work, home and children on vacation is not an easy task (I speak for myself), but we did it with a lot of effort and pleasure. After all, being a mother even in the midst of a crisis of madness is delicious lol. The vast majority of my friends give thanks to God at the end of the holidays and back to school. They get back to their routines, without children charging tours and calling every minute , but I particularly prefer children on vacation without routine and schedule charges, than the rush with school schedules, early lunch, uniform and backpack to pack.

With the return to school, the midweek walks, the cinema session in the middle of Wednesday afternoon and the picnic in the park are closed and give way to the rush of the school routine again. And let the new two-month period begin! With it new lessons and another countdown for the arrival of the next vacation. May the passing of these next few months be slow for the parents and rocket for the children, but when classes arrive, be as much fun as the holidays you have spent.

How to Prepare for Back to School?

The holidays are coming to an end , the last days of enjoyment must be enjoyed in a pleasant way. And let’s agree that a child knows how to do it very well, shall we? For dads who followed the holiday journey for 1 month or a few days less, more than enough to leave them exhausted, calm down, YOUR VACATION IS COMING rs. This may sound shocking to some people, but believe me it is true! Their vacations are over and our rush and concern to keep them happy during this period is also over. Tours will only happen again on weekends and our daily work and household chores will work normally again.

Even if you are anxiously waiting for the return to class, you will be surprised in the first days. The silence in the middle of the afternoon and the house is kept tidy for hours. You can answer an e-mail and make a call without a small background voice prompting or disturbing your concentration. That project that you wanted to develop and that was stopped with the arrival of the holidays can be analyzed again and maybe put into practice. When we are parents we have to learn and program ourselves to leave some plans and projects in the background, especially when it is close to school holidays.

If you can anticipate and resolve all issues before arriving on vacation, do so to avoid inconvenience and concerns that could be avoided. If you can’t anticipate, maybe you can postpone it after the holidays and resolve everything with calm and total dedication. For those who have no way out and need to work with the kids (as is my case), maybe the dialogue can resolve and work for a few hours lol. Talk and explain your need and that you need a few hours or minutes to resolve a work issue. Even though it is very complicated for a small child to understand that you are not on vacation like him , it may be that a fun activity will hold your attention for a few moments and be enough for you to be able to solve your pending work.

For preparation back to school, start putting the little ones to bed early at least a week in advance , preferably at the time they usually sleep when going to school. So that, get used to the schedules again even before the beginning of classes. If you leave it to do it just back to school, you can believe that it will be torture to wake up on time and a real whimper. Another tip is to check uniforms, backpacks and materials that may be missing and preventing that in the rush of the return day, forget something important. Leaving everything prepared and organized is a great way to start classes with peace of mind and without any major concerns.

My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.

Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
