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.
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.
