August Blues/ The Daily Post


http://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/august-blues/#like-89319

As a kid, were you happy or anxious about going back to school? Now that you’re older, how has your attitude toward the end of the summer evolved?

 

I don’t know about you but I liked school. I missed my friends when summer arrived. I cried when I realized I would not see most of them for three months. Back in those days we were let out of school on Memorial day and returned the day after Labor Day.

I had a good time in the summers. I rode my bikebikes. I played with my dolls, 1960s-chatty-cathy-doll but in the end I couldn’t wait to go back to school.

When I became a mommy and was forced to send my kids one by one off to school, I cried.

I hated giving them to others who may not care for and love them like I did.

I didn’t want my kids learning bad stuff that I had cautiously kept them from seeing and hearing.

I looked forward to all breaks and vacations they had. I guess I was maybe considered an odd-ball as I loved my kids being home.

In the end, I saw myself loving school as a child, and not being that crazy about it when I became older.

  1. LOL, my attitude has not changed. After all these years, I still hate school (not university). I see the school supplies on sale and when it is time, see the kids climbing onto school buses or going into their school and inside, that 8 year old, 14 year old, 18 year old kid goes “I don’t have to go schoooool, nya nya nya….”
