It’s the last week of school, and I always have mixed feelings about the summer break.


YAY!  We get to sleep in!
BOO!  Gone are my peaceful mornings ALONE with my tea.

YAY! No more making 4 bag lunches every day (that get thrown out at school).
BOO! I’ll be in the kitchen at all hours because the kids will be eating at all hours.

YAY!  I won’t be rushing to the bus stop or driving kids in morning traffic to school.
BOO!  All day long, I’ll be the Mom Taxi …without tips.

YAY!  No more projects, tests or homework!
BOO!  Two months of “Mom, I’m BORED” and “I have NOTHING to do!”

YAY!  The kids will be home with me for 2 months!
BOO!  The kids will be home with me for 2 months!

I have a remedy…

Would you like to celebrate summer with me?
This is me.  No, really, it is.  🙂

Let the summer fun begin!

    So true. Summer is good but it won’t be too long and we will be longing for the routine that September brings!

    Oh yes, those long lazy days of summer. You have so aptly captured the ups & downs of having the children out of their regular routine. When you are serving the cocktails, mine is the pretty pink one!
