How to Prepare Your Kids For Back To School? Part 2

Today I bring to you, 
Back to school, part two. 
When I switched on the lights this morning, 
From my children's room there wasn't the usual movement, or stirring. 

Five thirty AM is their usual time of awaking, 
Without an alarm or any parental prodding. 
Seems as though back to school worked like a sleeping pill,  
Because their response was "It's Night Time Still!" 

Nevertheless, we all got ready and made our departure, 
For this great, back to school adventure. 
Jahaziel was without a doubt extremely glad, 
While Amaziah was a mixture of happy and sad. 

As we got closer to school, he let his true feelings show,
Because the tears started to flow and flow and flow.
Not silently, but as loud as he could be,
Grasping my leg, crying "Mummy don't leave me".

From this I had to wrench my heart away,
By letting him know that I couldn't stay.
I assured him I'd be back at eleven thirty,
But it seemed that was no comfort as he continued with his plea.

For both of us I know this is a phase,
But boy oh boy we've both had better days.
We get to do it all over again tomorrow,
And this time I am praying it is with less sorrow.

Today I bring to you,

Back to school, part two.

When I switched on the lights this morning,

From my children's room there wasn't the usual movement, or stirring.

Five thirty AM is their usual time of awaking,

Without an alarm or any parental prodding.

Seems as though back to school worked like a sleeping pill, 

Because their response was "It's Night Time Still!"

Nevertheless, we all got ready and made our departure,

For this great, back to school adventure.

Jahaziel was without a doubt extremely glad,

While Amaziah was a mixture of happy and sad.

As we got closer to school, he let his true feelings show,

Because the tears started to flow and flow and flow.

Not silently, but as loud as he could be,

Grasping my leg, crying "Mummy don't leave me".
