I’ve been dreaming of the kids going back to school since the 2nd day of summer break. We had a really, really really long summer of scrapping with all three kids home. At their ages, they fight all the time. There were days I actually considered running away just so I could remember what peace and quiet felt like. Somehow we managed to survive it with trips to the water park, playground and bike rides. But all that is over and we’re back to a normal day with the kids kept busy learning new things.
In two weeks I’ll even have 3 half days a week of total silence around here when Miss Emma starts pre-school. I’m sure I’m going to miss her. She’s my quiet one that loves to spend hours coloring, drawing and helping me get the house in order.
Miss Kaydee is probably the happiest. She’s a total people person and loves to be surrounded by other kids she can chat with.
Until then I’m enjoying the little things like…
…being able to see the bottom of a laundry basket.
… not putting my hand on a sticky surface.
… hours without noise.
… trips to the grocery store and dinner on the table by 7.
… long walks with Emma.
… bubble baths by myself!
Have your kids gone back to school yet?
