I join dozens of parents around Cincinnati giving a silent cheer when the yellow bus pulls up to mark the start of school. As excited as I am with school starting, I bet a few teachers don’t feel the same.
You know what makes me feel better? Donuts. And I’m not just saying this because I’m on day six of a 24-day cleanse.
Then I think, donuts? Is that really a kindness? What if the boys’ teachers made new year’s resolutions like I did to eat healthy? Wouldn’t a donut mock them?
Clearly I’m over-thinking.
The boys and I polish up three red apples.
“I’m not bringing one,” F. says.
“Me either,” A. mimics.
They like Plan A.
