I know that many of my fellow parents have already begun the “school year like no other,” but for many of us in the Northeast, school begins the day after Labor Day (I checked my calendar and that’s today).
Seems like every work call now begins with “So what is your child/children doing this fall?” so that we can all commiserate about how much this all really, really sucks. There is always that little tinge of anger/jealousy when I hear another parent tell me that their child’s school is open even for 1 day a month. But hey, “We’re all in this together,” right? God how I hate that phrase right now.
Anyway, since CMEpalooza is a full-service event, I thought it might be helpful to provide you a Bingo card so that you can see how your day is going. Unfortunately, there is no prize for winning, but perhaps you can keep track of how quickly you can complete a row (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) and see if you can set a personal record each week. I’m 10 minutes into the virtual school year and I’ve already checked off three boxes. This should be easy.
