Drowning in Children’s Schoolwork

 

When my first child went off to pre-school it appeared to be more difficult on me than it was on him. He went in to have fun and I was sobbing. I wondered if I was doing the right thing? Would he be safe? Would he make friends?? Well he was fine and enjoyed being there. However, then papers started coming home. What do I do with all these papers? I just began collecting them and keeping them in a box.
Then child number 2 went to school and the papers coming home doubled. I was now drowning in papers from school and didn’t know what to do. My husband gave me a wonderful idea of how to get rid of all the clutter. I scanned in all the paperwork I wanted to keep (seemed I couldn’t let go of any) and then saved it in a file per child, per grade. So now I have all their paperwork easily accessible. I did save certain ‘special’ ones that I have hanging up but at least now I am not drowning in paperwork. It is a tedious task but worth it in the end 🙂
