The Back To School Checklist

Not to be all ‘doomsday clock’ on ya, but…we’re running out of time! Sure, it’s super hip these days for parents to share memes that eagerly count down to the beginning of the school year and we all make quips saying that we can’t wait for school buses to take […]

The Parent / Teacher Conference Phrase Decoder

*Big thanks to The Huffington Post for also running with this humorous back to school / parent-teacher conference post! Twice a year they meet with us, many of us, in 20-minute increments, stacked like six-packs of 4×4 In-n-Out Burgers (Protein Style, natch.) In hallways we wait, we sit and we […]
