FrumeSarah:Beernut, how in the world are you going to get all of your work done before bedtime?!?”
Beernut: I dunno, Mom, a miracle??

I am having flashbacks. Except in the memories, I am the child. And now I am the mother.

With seventeen more years of homework.

A fact they somehow forget to mention in those baby books.

    You sum it up so well!

    When my kids started getting homework, and turning to me for help, my reaction was: hey, I did my homework! Now it’s your turn!

    Except I hated homework, rarely did it, and constantly struggled with it. And now I am incapable (read: unwilling) to go through it again. Except now I have guilt, because I feel like I should. (as opposed to when I was a kid, and thought I did not need to, since I didn’t see the value in it)

    And I so agree with Phyliss — my kids have way more homework than I did!!
