Whoo-Hoo!! As much as I enjoyed my summer with my babes, I was thrilled to see School starting up again. Thrilled to have routine back. Thrilled to have one-on-one time with Bubba. Thrilled to have a quiet house.
Does that make me a bad mom?
Many moms were saying yesterday how much they missed their kids when they went back to school. Try as I might, I just couldn't find that feeling anywhere.
Miss their constant bickering & fighting with one another? Miss their enormous appetites for junk food? Miss their zoning in front of the tv, ignoring my requests to turn it off?
They were ready to get back to school - they both had an AWESOME day, chattering about thier friends, the rules of P.E., their teacher's expectations ("can you believe I might have 2 nights of homework?" gasp!!).
We had an awesome summer filled with travel, family, and fun. But this family is ready for routine. And the school year provides us with learning, schedules, better habits, and so on.
So, the 2 olders are back at school.
