I didn’t have to make lunches Sunday night, because the kids would be home with Dad on Monday.
I didn’t have to nag anyone to practice piano or do homework, because we’re done with all that for two months.
I didn’t freak out about getting the kids to bed on time, because even if they don’t get enough sleep (no matter what, I know they won’t sleep in), they don’t really have to be sharp the next day.
I’ve been finding time to read my own book and update my blog.
This is the first summer where both my kids are out of school and daycare for the whole two months. It will be a pain in so many ways to get them to and from enough camps to give us parents time to work but not too much so they’re overscheduled. But for the moment, all I can think of is the good stuff.
I love summer vacation. Today. Ask me again tomorrow night when my kids are sleep deprived and getting on my nerves.
