Spring is almost here!
Sure, it’s still technically winter.
But it’s already Spring Break.
The house looks like a tornado zipped through it.
The laundry is piling up to the ceiling.
And being the unofficial official referee of this crazy clan is taking its toll on me.
Mommy needs a drink.
If this is a preview of what summer holds, I may be tempted to run away with the circus.
Joining the circus is no longer an option?
Damn you, Ringling Bros!
Damn you for not keeping up with the times and taking away that last glimmer of hope.
Don’t get me wrong.
I love Spring Break.
I love some parts of Spring Break.
No teacher emails.
No phone calls from the principal.
I’m pretty well convinced we are on the school’s speed dial system.
So yeah, I’m a fan of any type of school-related break.
Besides, sleeping in is always a nice luxury.
Even if it is only until 7am.
Hey, it’s progress.
On Day One, both boys managed to land themselves in time out without any electronic privileges.
But then they behaved well enough later in the week for us to actually get out a few times.
And so I found myself going places I’d rather not go.
Like Chuck E Cheese.
Home of the Yuck E Cheese pizza.
That inedibly nasty excuse for pizza always sits in my stomach like a sinking rock.
What’s in that crap, anyway?
On second thought, I’d rather not know.
And then there’s Dave and Buster’s.
Two hours and a zillion dollars later, we walked out of there with our prize:
A Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em game that we could have purchased for $19.99 at any big box store.
But if we stayed home, the whole eating around the clock cycle of fun would’ve continued, à la Hungry, Hungry Kiddos.
Let me tell ya, that gets old really fast.
Between the demands and lack of gratitude from at least one child at any given time, it’s been a most rewarding week.
Get back to school already, will ya?
Spring has not quite sprung…
Daylight savings is about to begin…
And we’re running out of food and sanity.
Break’s almost over?
~Happy Friday, everyone! If you’ve also had the pleasure of being on “break” with kids this week, I hope your sanity is still intact. Have a wonderful weekend!~
