At first I was terrified of the idea "Summer Break". 24 hours of uninterrupted time with my children 7 days a week! I had grown quite fond of spending my days in solitude chillin with my 4 year old. We had quite the routine going. When we moved to Lansing and all the school issues arose, Summer Break began to look like a small piece of Heaven. No more calls from teachers, no more irritating bus drivers, and no more calling my husband home from work to pick up my son even though all he had done was thrown a small fit. I was excited for calm relaxing mornings and sleeping in.
Um rude awakening much???
Don't get me wrong, I am highly enjoying all the socialization I am finally getting from all the play dates, but this is busier than the school year! There is no sleeping in, not when I have to drive the husband to work in order to have the car for the day. And surely not when the sun hits my pillow at 7am and my children decide that is the perfect time to wake up, although during the school year it was impossible to drag them out of bed that early!
I am going to claim that the word 'Vacation' be removed from "Summer Vacation" and the word 'Break' banned as an alternative as well. This is more like "Summer Pandemonium". Yes, that's definitely more accurate! So now that I'm pretty sure everyone's children have been released for the summer, let me wish a Happy Summer Pandemonium to all you lovely moms!!!
