As summer vacation approaches, only one phrase comes to mind from the famous boxing announcer Michael Buffer, "Let's get ready to RUMBLE!!!!!!!" My boys + 24 hrs a day = Give that back! Get off me! You cheated!! Leave me alone! Mommy, he hit me!!!!"
I decided not to send them to day camp this summer. I had these wonderful visions of us relaxing by the pool, going to the library, and taking day trips to the museum and beach. (I also wanted to save money). But now reality is setting in and I am facing the fact that I have two energetic boys who are busy busy busy. I have thought of creating a "schedule" like they have in school to keep them entertained. I fear that I lack the energy and patience to keep up with them. I wish I was more laid back and organized and less hyper and disorganized. I wish I was "that Mom", the one we all aspire to be.
So as of Friday, summer vacation will be officially underway. I know there will be a lot of screaming and crying (not only from me) but I also know there will be a lot of laughter and smiles. This will be the summer of them being 7 and 5, a summer to remember. However with all those nice things being said, I know I will be the one of those "excited" parents to be shopping for school supplies come August.
