Although we may be the last school district in the United States to do so, school finally starts tomorrow!! To say that I am excited beyond belief is an understatement. I am ecstatic! With the start of school, I am able to:
- resume regular housekeeping activities without constant interruptions and whiny pleas of “When you will be done so you can play with me????”
- begin walking (briskly) for 45 minutes a day while listening to an audiobook and without having to walk at a curious child’s pace (which burns fewer calories) and without non-stop chatter about Ben 10, Star Wars and animals.
- run errands without a whiny and unwilling companion
- possible pockets of downtime to READ and BLOG without “When will you be done, Mommy?”
In short, I’m getting my life back! I couldn’t be happier. Although I love you dearly, Little One, I think we were both getting tired of our constant togetherness during the summer. After all, how can you miss someone if you are ALWAYS with them!?
