Well Max is back to school & so life goes on. First morning started off well but then we had problems when he realised he couldn't wear his sport uniform. Max LOVES the sport uniform but is not so keen on his formal uniform. A number of discussions later we finally get in the car & head off....me quietly saying to myself "I will not yell, I will not yell, I will not yell!!!"
The school book orders were done differently this year. We ordered & paid for them back in November & then instead of a day at school where you could go & collect them, they were delivered direct to our home. Sounded great EXCEPT Max's books only turned up late on Monday night!!! With Tuesday being Australia Day (public holiday) it left me doing the fun task of book covering on Wednesday!!
Well I have to say I hate (make that HATE) contact so endeavoured to find a way that would be easier....after all there were 20 books to do!!! Thank goodness I only had 1 child to worry about!! We found some old calendars (my husband keeps them all....I will NEVER EVER complain about this again...they DO have a use after all!!!) & cut them up & covered the books as they were.
End result VERY boyish - all fast cars & Star Wars - me happy & my little Max estatic!!! He was so pleased that I am going to save myself the grief & do the same next year! Bless you darling Shaun for keeping all kinds of things "just in case"!!!
