SCHOOOOL's out for summer!
Shayne: Look at me Mom, I'm freeeeeeeeeeee!! (running wildly across the lawn, after arriving home on the last day of school)
I have to admit--even after being out of school for um, a lot of years, I still get that excited feeling on the last day.
But, it's a little different as a mom. Although I am thrilled to not have to make lunches, or correct homework, or listen (and daydream) through 20 minutes of reading per kid, per night...
I will miss the break. The guilt-free "me" time. Mikayla and I just got down a good SAHM(and toddler) routine.
We'll just have to adapt to a new system. One that includes the school(less) kids, a little chore-time, a lot of play time, and throw in a bit of stay up late and sleep in even later, and I think we will adjust well.
Just don't call us before 10 am..
