Um, how come no one warned me what sending Chatterbox to Kindergarten actually meant for me? It's been almost 3 weeks and I honestly feel like one could do nothing else but manage their kids' school "careers." Between Orientation, Back to School Night, the Book Fair, keeping up with school forms, homework, making lunches, not to mention optional (but encouraged) activities like the Parent Involvement Committee, the School Improvement Committee, Girl Scouts and the PTA, my head is spinning! And she's only 5?
Can I ask my boss for a leave of absence for the next 13 years?
