Confessions of a Mother and a School Project

When your kids come home from school and announce they have a project due, do you cringe and feel like it's parent busy work? Confess I can't be the only one. They already have piles of homework. There isn't enough time in the day for sports, showers, cooking, cleaning, and all the other gazillion things that has to be done before midnight. Not to mention, I really want to spend quality time with them before bedtime. So we help a bit.

My third grader needed to make an animal in their natural habitat, in a shoebox for Science. Cool! Easy as pie!

No shoebox, ran out of construction paper

It could be due the 12th, 13th, or 19th. Okay, weird

No specific instructions. Please don't let me give my kid a big fat F

It totally sucks that my kid can't go outside to collect leaves and such to add to her project because THERE IS SNOW AND LOTS OF IT which led to the below.

Hubby and I did 3/4 of it! Internet searches for images, superimposing, copying, printing! PARENT BUSY WORK!

Yesterday I get "Mom everyone brought their project in already. Did you finish mine?"
I hang my head in shame and make her paint and glue everything together which takes five whole minutes. She brought it to school today!
