I'm done. Last night was the last of the FOUR parent orientations I've attended in the past 2 weeks: one (thankfully) for me, and one for each of my 3 kids. I'm toast. I'm tired of spending my evenings in desks, listening to teachers after a long day at work. My kids need me at home. And I need to spend some time there. I need time to talk to my kids about their day, and to spend some time going over their homework. Maybe even reading all those papers I've been signing in the mornings as I head out the door. Giving them a kiss before bed. I understand the value of the meetings, and wouldn't dream of missing them. But, at the same time, I'm tired of meeting people. At this particular point in my life, I'm content with the people I already know and have no burning desire to meet anyone else. I can't wait to get home tonight and NOT head off to anyone's school. Yep, I'm done.
