With All Due Respect

 

Just like 99% of all mothers, I love all my children. But I am, without shame, counting the days until school starts (11 for Numbers 1-2 and 26 for Numbers 3-4).

It's not that they are bad. Loud, constantly hungry, increasingly active and bickery - YES!  I am over it and I'm pretty sure they are too. There is only so much I can enthusiastically come up with to occupy this 2, 4, 8 and 10 year old set of boys for 12+ hours a day.

They will go back to school soon. Back to friends, schedules and routines. And I will go back to my sanity, a little free time and non-banshee scream afternoons. A win-win for everyone I think.    

Another day, another story,
Em

We only have two, but the energy level is reaching a fever pitch around here. I'm running out of safe answers to the question "I'm bored?!?!?!".
