Ok.. so I am going to rant a bit here. Not too much I think.. but be warned 🙂
There are 2 more days of school.. not even that, 1 1/2. Ack!! what am I going to do???? But enough of that, onto the rant..
Why the heck does the end of the school year have to be insane?? The girls have had a spring concert, 2 plays, 1 field trip, kindergarten grad, at least one party and then the last day of school.. All in the span of 22 days.
Seriously.. what are they thinking??
My girls are adopted and do have more issues than the average child, so I am
a bit a lot more sensitive to this kind of stuff. I can see really well when children are in a state of overwhelm.. even kids that are not my own.
Today my oldest daughter had a little play in the auditorium (which was cute and they did a good job) but when it ended mayhem broke loose.. seriously, I saw kids having no clue what to do, many were running around, one was clinging to her teacher, parents were on stage, some kids even started taking down the scenery.. It was chaos.
I immediately grabbed my daughter and held her hand. Then we found a seat and she seemed to be able to regulate herself with my help. I helped her get in line to walk back to class with the other students. But I could tell that other students needed help, too.
I don’t know.. this stuff is fun and exciting.. but how much is enough?? If it were up to me.. I think kids could do without 90% of the “activities” we provide for them. But that is just me.
How about you?
