So school is officially out for all of my children. I hear moms asking about if I'm excited and happy and all that other joyful crap. Is it wrong to not be doing cartwheels? I mean, I am on a certain level excited to get to enjoy my children and get to do summer things with them- museums, zoo, sidewalk chalk, toad hunt, pool playage, all that stuff. But they fight, and they bicker, and they want their friends over ALL.THE.TIME. and they eat, so I cook, and they mess, so I clean, and they fight, and they bicker. It just makes for some crazy days. That's all. So it is bitter sweet I suppose. But no, I'm not excited. I even fought for summer school but apparently they don't offer that in preschool : )
I will be happier when the air show is over and I am not working 43 hours a day. I love being involved with the event, but this time of year it really takes long hours and that means less time at home and lots of time there. Only one more week, that is doable. Then summer is here and we can work on finding our summer groove. Whatever that is.
Field day was friday. Notice no pictures? Yeah, mom of the year here. But at least I got to go, that counts for something.
Today Emily had a birthday party for a friend at a pottery place. What, no pictures again? Yeah, I know. I just sat back and enjoyed watching the 18, yes I did say 18, children paint their masterpieces. And what I think I enjoyed more was watching certain mommas paint their kids pieces for them. The kids would be sitting, painting away, mom would take the brush to 'touch up' and never give it back. Before you knew it the kid is up running amok and the mommas are very seriously painting perfect little kitties and unicorns. It was hysterical. Not me man, Emily painted a beautiful black zebra with blue and green polka dots. Gorgeous! Meanwhile I sat on my heiny and visited with the other non-painting moms.
Focus back for a moment on 18 kids. I felt sorry for the girl working in the pottery place. Until she texted from behind the counter the entire time we were there and let the parents get paint, clean up, wash tables, rinse sponges and clean the paint trays. Man, she wasn't selling me on a future party there, I'll tell you that. Get up off your behind and work girl. Us mommas are tired, and we need all the young help we can get.
My nephew graduated high school this week. More on that later.
And finally, allyson was allowed some friendage this afternoon while emily partied. We now have drama because no one is spending the night. Uhggg. I tell you what, it is always something.
I'm off to prepare a nutritious dinner for my family. Corn on the cob and something to go with that. Enjoy your week.
