Finding your middle school mojo

I loved this post by Mom Sass so much on that I had to share it with all of you.

Here’s the first graph:

Rebels are taking over Libya. Hurricane Irene is breathing down our neck.  And my youngest daughter is starting middle school.

Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Mom Sass generously share bits of advice passed on from a 7th-grader to a 6th-grader. For the sake of all 6th-graders everywhere (and their moms), she passes them on to all of us:

* The only first-day-of-school photos to be taken will be done so at home. Once you get within a 500 meter radius of school, all parent-owned cameras, cell phones and video cams must be kept from view.

* Wear Converse sneakers. The brighter, the better. Laces should also be bright and contrast with the shoe as jarringly as possible.

* Avoid using school bathrooms at all costs. They’re gross.
