Are parents also back to school?

This post is a rant so if you don't want to hear a sweaty, stressed out, hormonal mum ramble on then press that little cross in the right hand corner now!



So as we all know today was back to school for the kiddies.....it would also seem that it was "back to school" for the parents, all the mucky looks, the bitching and the whispering started again today for another long ass term! I'm not "in the club" as I call It, I see school as a place my child goes to and I as a parent take him, drop him off and pick him up. I'm not there to make "friends" I'm polite and say hello and have the odd chat but that's about as far as it goes, So because of this maybe I'm seen as some sort of "snob" or "ignorant" I say hello, what more do people want!! I help with bake sales and summer fayres and contribute to the school whenever they need help, But because I'm not in the massive mumsy group I'm looked down on!

Some parents also think they can pick the days they want to say hello to me! one day they can be full of smiles the next just a dirty look whilst walking past me!!
I once heard some of the mums stood at the door talking about me because I didn't go stand next to them and chat, instead, I waited in line for my child!?? was this the wrong thing to do? is that not what I'm there for!?

I find myself worrying about what the other mums think of me....why!!? It's like worrying about what the "bullies" or the "popular" girls think and say! When I became a mother I didn't sign up to this shit, my school days ended in 2002! and trust me them days are days I NEVER want to relive!

Sorry this post is just a huge rant but today has been one of them sort of days, and I just needed to express some of the anger that I was feeling.

Right best go iron my uniform for tomorrow and open a big bottle of wine........Hungover for school what will the headteacher do with me, I may even get detention!!

  3. I've just started down this road so thanks for getting me worked up before I even get into it! I'll only be doing the pick up/drop off for one day a week so the chances of my being in "the group" are very unlikely...which sounds like it'll be a good thing.

  4. You snob! Seriously though, who needs it? I think I would go about things exactly the same way, although I imagine the school run will be an entirely different beast for me as a dad. Time will tell! #oldschoolposts

  5. I don't get any of that either. I'm more involved with the teachers than I am with other parents. I simply don't care about that stuff so I'm seen as a loner. Fine by me because in many ways, I am a loner. I go on field trips but I never really connect with the other mothers. There have only been a handful of mothers I have connected with over the years but we are very busy moms. We don't always have time to socialize. Screw those chics! You don't need that crap. #oldschoolposts

  6. Oh no, that's rubbish! My two haven't started school yet but I'm already wary of the pressure inflicted on mums at the school gates . I know it's hard but do try to ignore them as best you can x #triumphanttales

  7. I'm not in the school mums' club either. There is a group that all seem to know each other and they chat and never include anyone else. I always try to be friendly but people pass my by and go to there own clique. I run the local mums and tots group and even those mums don't acknowledge me at school! Ha! I'm passed caring now! #triumphanttales

  8. I dread the day I have to take Ben to school as I wasn't popular at school and no doubt won't fit into the "mum club" either. Keep your head held high and just pray time goes quickly!
    Thank you for sharing this with us at #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back tomorrow.
