From The Confessional: ‘Enough Already, Pajama Day!’
27 anonymous confessions about the chaos that is the end of the school year
Ah, the end of the school year. That two- or three-week period when suddenly, every Tuesday there’s a random celebration at 1:30pm. Or a spirit week dress-up request that everyone forgot about until 45 seconds before the bus arrives. Where was this energy in February?! Today in the Scary Mommy Confessional, 27 parents share their good, bad, and bittersweet reactions to this time of year.
