On the way up the driveway from the bus stop, this was my conversation with the eldest of the bunch:
Griffin: Hey Mom!! I asked Coleman today if his mom was going crazy because she had this PTA stuff tonight just like you?
Me: Oh, yea, what did Coleman say?
Griffin: Yea, He said Ms. Andrea is going crazy too!
Me: Yep, 'Tis the season for us ALL to be going crazy!
If only the 8 year olds understood that it's not TONIGHT that's driving us crazy. Tonight includes dinner with a couple of girl friends after the PTA stuff! It's the rest of the days between now and May 21st! But there is reassurance in knowing that other people's children think their own mothers are "going crazy" just as mine think i am! Much better to know i'm not the only one!
