Homework

I am slogging through the pages of school registration forms today. 18 pages to be exact. 18 pages of me writing the same thing over and over and over. In fourthplicate. To the fourth degree. In red pen, please. There is medical information to be gathered, forms to sign for internet use, fees and my basic mom understanding of student handbooks. I shall persevere. I shall carry on until my husband has to pry that little red pen out of my hand. Why? Because 18 pages is a small price to pay for all four children heading out the door every morning to spend their days at public school!!!

I wonder if schools have ever heard of this new invention called a computer. It might make things more efficient, but what do I know????

Carla said...

Are they back in school already? If not, how considerate to get that volcano of paperwork early. (Then again, being a procrastinator, I still wouldn't do it any sooner and would just feel worse for having had it even longer and still not having it done before 1:00 a.m. the morning it was due. There.)

Try not filling it ALL in over and over and I'll bet they won't return it. I just had to fill in Bryce's for high school and the assoc. principal told me to just fill in his name and personal information and then write "same as all the others" over the rest of the papers. I think he'd peeked at papers from past years and had seen that I did it on my own for previous children.
