I am the mom that breathes a sigh of relief when school holidays come to an end.
Sure I love my kids, but I like the routine that exists where I drop them at school, and then have a few hours where I do not have to field awkward questions of: “So, where did you leave the kids?”
Last week I was in Willowbridge with Connor. Joyce was there so I stopped by for tea and a chit-chat. I must confess a touch of panic did run through my when she asked: “So where are the kids?”
For a fleeting moment my brain panicked, as I had totally forgotten all ab0ut them. After a few moments I recalled I actually only had one with me, and then the panic passed as I sort of recalled where I had left him.
Moms all over the country are vexed they need to pack school lunches, polish shoes and drop kids off at school – me, not so much.
I did a lot more this school holidays with the kids than I usually would. I got to be almost intimate friends with a Tokai based baboon. I visited Hermanus. I went to the odd wine farm. I did a spate of Art Jamming, and a few other activities thrown in.
But I for one am glad school holidays are over.
I like the sanity of school time.
I hope your Monday is happy, and you get the kids to school on time.
No, this post has no real purpose, but there you go.
