Back in the saddle again

Being the routine lovin' girl that I am, I think I am ready to say goodbye to summer(despite the fact it will be stifling hot for another month) and welcome fall with open arms. I thought about it and today marks the twelfth year that I have taken a first day of school pictures and sent my children off with their tummies full(usually of diet coke and oreos) and their minds empty. Such little soldiers of education! I waited with anticipation all day to hear about their adventures in learning and was greeted like this
Me- "How was school?"
Them- "Fine"
Me- "What did you learn?"
Them-"Oh I dunno, just stuff"
Just when I thought my tuition money could be better spent on a Tahiti getaway, they asked me to help with homework.
In a word- I'm and idiot. I figure, if my kids can manage to learn things I cannot understand, like the values of x and y, and steps of scientific experimentation, then I ought to be set for life. My genious children can take care of me in luxury when I'm old. At the worst, I better end up with a private room in the nursing home with a view of the sunflower garden!

Understand the Values of x and y? I couldn't even remember how to divide fractions - thank God you can find anything on the internet.

Okay, what's that huge box that Leslie is holding. I'm not gonna tell you what it looks like to me. When I was in school you didn't have to bring your own all the time, you could get them for free from the nurse's office if you really needed one.
