May Madness and Mothers Gone Mad

For mothers with children at home and in school, May can bring madness. It’s a month that tends to be filled with end-of-the-school-year projects, performances, concerts, dress rehearsals, parties and more.

For instance, last night, after finishing his project at 10 p.m. (yes, way past his bedtime), our 10-year-old son let us know he had to take 25 “poultry items” to school today. (Big shout out and thanks to my husband Jimmy, who picked up 25 three-count Chick-fil-A minis on the way to school this morning).

Last week, it was the fourth-grade play. I’m still not sure how I got hooked into helping with costumes, given that I’m really not creative, but I was proud of myself for crafting and stitching a cravat of sorts for President James Madison. This was soon followed by a strings concert. Last night was dress rehearsal for ballet.
