Bag of Books or Bricks

15 Sep

M2 carries the heaviest bag of books to school these days. We simply cannot fathom why text books nowadays are made so thick and big that they feel more like bricks than books. Hubby commented that her school bag was heavier than his golf bag. I tried carrying her bag to gauge.

Sure enough, it felt heavier than my golf bag too. And mind you, my bag has the full set of 14 clubs, a dozen balls, an umbrella, raincoat and the essential knick knacks.

Why are kids these days subjected to such a burden? I just hope carrying all those heavy books will yield some positive exam results.
