Don’t Be The Crazy Lady in the Drop Off Lane

It never fails I am in the school drop-off lane behind the one mom in the city that is braiding her daughter’s hair without a clue there are 3 dozen cars behind her waiting not so patiently or the crazy mom spewing off spelling words like a politician the day before Election Day.

Now, don’t get me wrong I am an advocate of neatly braided hair and I really believe that a shiny A on a Spelling test is the “cat’s pajamas”,but for the love of peanut butter banana pancakes people, it is the carpool lane!!!! Move it! Move it! Move it!

So, tell me moms?

Are you the mom braiding your daughter’s hair in the carpool lane?

Are you holding up traffic with the class extra credit word  antidisestablishmentarianism?

Or are you me?

Hand on the car horn ready for battle, cursing up a storm while your child looks at you like you have sprouted horns and a tail?

This insanity must be stopped!  BUT HOW?

Raise your hand if you know the answer…… waiting…. waiting ….. okay, you the mom in the back row with the wristwatch the size of a dinner plate.

What is your advice to us crazy busy moms today?

Wristwatch lady says:  “15 minutes. I always arrive 15 minutes early to take care of last-minute details and if we have none we just sit and chat about what things will be happening that day.  It is a much calmer experience for my child and myself and he always scores an A+ on his Spelling test. :)” “But, I am totally not bragging or anything. {Insert annoying wink from lady with giant wristwatch.}

  1. I assume that is dropping them off. When I brought BabyGirl to school, it wasn’t bad. It flowed smoothly. I think the braiding should be done before they leave their home as well as studied way before dropping them off.

    BUt one time when I went get her, I would get in line about 30 minutes before and I fell asleep. I was knocked out. All of a sudden I woke up to someone knocking on my window. I was holding up traffic. The lady said a few honked and I never moved, some were concerned there was something wrong with me..that was embarrassing.
