Parental Shell-Shock

Last week, after I’d dropped off the kids at school, I came back and took Boo a notebook she’d forgotten in the car.

(This effort did not seem to earn me any points with her, by the way. She barely gave a backwards glance, much less a thank you. But I digress.)

Still, it afforded me an interesting glimpse of all the parents I don’t usually see walking their kids in to school, since I drop mine off from the carpool line.

Here’s what they all looked like:


I’m serious. This was the most shell-shocked looking group I’ve ever seen.

They were dragging kids by the hands with grim determination on their faces, looking like, “It almost killed me to to get you here, kid, but by golly, YOU ARE GOING TO SCHOOL!!”

Folks, I can relate.
