1. Box of 8 crayons only
We request only 8 crayons, as many directions are color coded, and it makes it less confusing for your child to follow the directions.
Apparently it is just presumed that when you enter the 1st grade, you are an idiot. But then again, I'm still confused by the difference between brown and burnt sienna. Can I blame my parents for sending me to school with more than 8 crayons in the first grade?
11. Container of Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
They're getting Lysol. I got a good deal and they're just going to have to live with it.
Tomorrow's assignment for mommy...find a blue pencil box. You know I'm going to encounter every color BUT blue, right?
Now...do you really think I need to put my child's name on each item as the supply list indicates? I really don't see myself trying to write his name on scissors...or a glue stick. But I will reluctantly break out the Sharpie if the consensus says that I must.
(By the way...keep your stories coming in the comments. I love knowing that I am not alone in my misery and they're really good for a laugh or two.)
