Dear annoying million-questions mom,
Okay, so I get it. All of our kids are starting kindergarten next year for the first time. It’s new. It’s scary. But when we go to an informational session about it, do you seriously need to ask SOOOOO many questions??? The teachers are like are there any more questions, and every time we think it’s over, nope, your arm shoots up again. And again and again and again.
And do you know what I’m thinking? I don’t F’ing blame you.
Because when all of our kids leave us on that first day of school and I’m tearing up because my baby is leaving me for a whole entire day, here are some of the things I’m gonna be worried about. What if he doesn’t like his snack? What if he can’t find his locker? What if he doesn’t get to the potty on time? But here are some of the things you’re gonna be worried about. What if the kid sitting next to him is eating a PB&J? What if he has to sit all alone every lunch and he never makes any friends? What if someone gives him a cookie with nuts and he eats it and he can’t breathe and dies?
I mean sure, I worry about my kids dying every day (is that normal???), but my scenarios are like crazy-farfetched. You worry about shit that’s totally within the realm of possibility.
So please, ignore the jerkwads in the room who are rolling their eyes every time your arm shoots up. We’ll sit here a little longer while you ask your questions about the cafeteria and snack time and the nurse’s office and EpiPens. You need answers to your questions. Like your kid’s life depends on it. And that’s totally worth an extra half hour of our time.
