The first camp laments the end of summer. They post loving messages on Facebook about how much they will miss their precious ones once they leave for school. No more sleeping in. No more lazy walks and late night ice cream runs. No more snuggles in the middle of the day.
The second camp celebrates the end of summer. They post pictures of their kids getting on the bus while the parents happily wave goodbye. No more crazy routines. No more children hanging on them all day long. No more kids wrestling, arguing and bickering at lunchtime.
While no group is wrong, I certainly fall into the second camp. I love my boys as much as parents who will miss their kids. But I also desperately need to have my own space and be my own person during the day. For me, school couldn’t come soon enough!
Are you excited for school to begin again?
