It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Don't get me wrong...I LOVE my kids! However, is it wrong that I get a small sense of relief when I see the local retailers putting out their school supplies?? That's Isabella's new messenger backpack because first graders "don't carry regular backpacks Mom!" We've been having an awesome summer for sure...but the kids really miss having a bazillion friends to play with at any time of the day and I miss hanging out with my friends at the community pool. I've had enough bickering and arguing and "I'm bored" to last me for the rest of my life! Running errands in the summer has become an art as I have to bribe Evan and Isabella to come with me and Jonah to stay home because taking all three is a recipe for disaster! I haven't established my back up of neighbors to call and say "can you watch the kids for an hour while I run to the a doctor's get more chocolate?" Hopefully, next summer will be a little better but for now...the light at the end of the tunnel is glowing brightly!
