Teachers in the Newport-Mesa School District might be thinking “not my problem” this year.  With Wednesday, November 1st being a district-wide Staff Development Day, parents are going to be the ones facing the wrath of the over-sugared, exhausted child.  While a lazy start to the morning sounds fabulous, the reality might be a little closer to “mom I’m bored” or “I want candy.”  That is of course if they use any words at all (HELLO tantrum).  If you are looking for a few ideas for burning off that post-Halloween sugar high, check out these mom-inspired activities from Pinterest.  And good luck!
