Oh gosh. The kids and I have been waiting all year for this day! SUMMER! Like I was telling you here, I am that mom, through and through. I want my children home. Like all the time.
Even when they’re annoying, I want them around. When they are screaming, fighting and acting like jerks – I still want them here. Some days are longer than others, YES. Some days I threaten to send them away to a strict boarding school or the army or something that sounds so horrible to them. But for the most part I’m ecstatic to have them. My heart is jumping for joy at the thought of SUMMER! Oh my word – that sounds so dorky, I know. I should be embarrassed because I said that – I can’t help it. That’s the only way to describe it.
I’m a total sap. And as a total sap, I keep panicking about the limited amount of time I have to hang with them. Where does the time go? Seriously, it’s a blur.
Ok ok ok. Now that I’ve gone on and on about my happy heart. I understand not everyone feels this way. Everyone’s situation is different and sometimes more complicated.
My friend wrote a beautiful piece about how she feels about summer break. Sara is one of the best moms out there. I have no doubt she loves her children to pieces and would do anything for them… yet summer means something different to her. Read her side of the story HERE.
Whatever feelings arise in you as we start off summer – we are all in this mess. Us mamas must stick together!
Speaking of feelings – This new white gauze tunic that hit the shop floor me smile! Check it out online or stop by the shop to grab one for yourself. I’m using it for streetwear but it’s also a perfect swimsuit coverup!
