No, you're not.
My oldest is 27, my youngest 15. So far I have been doing the school run for sixteen years. I have another three to go! Nineteen years on the school run, aaaargghhhhh!

Dawndonna, I see your 19 (+3 to come) years on the school run and raise you.............. 13 years on the school run and and another 17 years to go!

My eldest is 17years, youngest 11months..... rural area, even getting the bus when they are older involves a "school run" to the pick-up-points!

I've done 8 years so far and will have another 14 years to do the School run . No bus available here either <sigh>

30 years [faints]

I'm only on year 10! ds starts next year but we live so close to the schools I think I'm going to let him fend for himself once he reaches middle school...

this year I've got 4 dc at 4 schools (only three of which I drop off / collect at every day) which is nice for a change confused

I think I beat you both but my preg addled brain is too tired to figure it out! Ds1 is 22 and youngest is due in December..... that's a LOT of school runs, plus I hate the cliche mums thing. Dd is 5 (year 1) and there's a particularly cliche/competitive mums group. It's torture!

Disclaimer: I do work and don't do it all the time thank goodness.

No, tbh right now I could do without it. Had a car accident yesterday, been on my feet all morning then at a routine hospital appoiintment all aftermoon. Only back half an hour a go anf got to go and get DD in 10 minutes and take her to the local shoe shop to try and buy her some boots. I ache all over, my knee is a bit swollen and my neck hurts. I just want to sit here with my feet up and have a nap!

Good grief, I really thought I was hard done by, particularly as I too have the rural area and bus pick up points too.
I hang my head in shame!

<faints away in awe of oldmum42's 30 years school run and tells self to get a grip as she's only done half that so far>

One and only DS at secondary now so I don't have to do it anymore, funny enough I quite miss it sad

Dropping and picking up from Scouts, Sea Cadets, Girlfriends house has taken over though and they're further away!

I think HARRASSEDANDHERBUG beats us all!

A 22 year gap between DS1 and newDC??? Truly WOW!

At least, DAWNDONNA, the rural bus pick up means less Bitchybitchy parent clique issues!

Dawndonna Tue 18-Oct-11 16:51:02
