I'm finally finished with all the preparations for school: making lunches, packing school bags, signing forms, etc. Now, I'm finally really to switch to my other life and do some school work or maybe take a peek at some of my blogs.
I'm exhausted. These last few days, I feel like I've been leading a double life. That sounds glamorous and exciting, though. I don't feel glamorous and exciting. I'm buggered.
I just wish the first two weeks of school were already over. Not that I wish to rush through the excitement of these next two weeks. We've got some milestones happening. Upper Primary for Buddy, Ella on the same bus with him to HKIS, and Cally off to nursery. I can't believe I will have three kids in school! But still, if the first two weeks were over, I'd already be in the swing of things.
Right now, I feel like I'm living two separate lives - that of a teacher and that of a mother. And, to be honest, I feel like I'm sucking at both. I can't seem to balance them. I feel like I'm always missing something or forgetting something, and I don't want to miss anything with the kiddos this week. Don't even ask me when the last decent conversation was with the hubby.
Sigh. Oh well. I'll get there eventually.

In the meantime, isn't this girl cute? She seems to have it all together. I love the little black socks with the sandals. The sweater vest for a dress. That top knot.
Do you think this look could work for school teacher? Or a mum? I think so.
