I love when my kids have break from school. We get to spend a lot of time together playing games, going on outings and having fun. But this is the longest break (besides summer time) that they’ve ever had off and I am so ready for them to go back to school! For so many reasons!!!
I didn’t think it was possible to eat all day long. For anyone. My kids have proved me wrong and they’re not even teenagers yet.
If I hear another “UUUGGGHHHH” I might just lose my shit. It’s “UUGGGHHHH” because they can’t get their sock on right. It’s “UUUGGGHHHH” because I said wait a minute. Because the other kid is in the bathroom. I asked them to pick up after themselves or feed the dogs. It doesn’t matter how small it is, it’s always “UUUGGGHHHHH.”
The arguing between my kids is consistent with that of a moaning cat in heat. Never ending!
I have forgotten what day it is without them going to school. Trash day has almost been missed twice.
They are always here. When I’m taking shower. Going to the bathroom. Trying to clean. Brushing my teeth. Always there. Right there with me.
So much whining! Whine that they want to do something. Then whine they don’t want to do anything. Whine because they’re hungry. Whine because you’re ignoring them while they’re whining.
Bedtime is literally non-existent. That 8pm bedtime is long gone and staying up until 11-midinight or 1 is in! It’s not like they sleep in. I’ve been lucky to get 1 or 2 days of sleeping in. They are still up early.
Vacation has lasted so long, they don’t even want to play with each other anymore. Right now, one is up stairs playing video games and the other is breathing down my neck next to me on the couch as I type this.
They think they don’t need showers because they aren’t going to school. Have you ever smelled a pubescent boy who hasn’t showered in a few days? Let alone his room? It’s not a pretty smell.
I keep telling myself I just have a few more days. Just a few more days and they will back at school and we will be back to routine. But I know that will bring grumpiness with 5 am wake ups and exhaustion by the end of the day. I can’t wait!
Happy Monday My Friends
