Our junior school had parents’ evening last night. It was chaos.
We had appointments at 6 and 6:20 which is always going to be touch and go, as one teacher is invariably late and the other is usually early. Add to that one piano lesson that finishes at 5:50 and another that starts at the same time, plus two younger kids who really should be heading up to bed, and you have the potential for the entire evening to go pear shaped.
We could have got super organised, bathed DD3 and DS early and cancelled piano for this week but no, we booked a baby sitter, left them all up in front of the TV and hoped for the best. Luckily, the school is only 5 minutes up the road.
