Stay where you are

We just got back yesterday — just the girls and I this time — from a week at my parents’ house. While fun was had by all, I am totally fried of vacation. To recap, I’ve essentially been out of town since Memorial Day on the following trips: Tennessee, Florida, Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and then… wait for it, Tennessee. My husband came on all of our trips except those to Tennessee.

And now I find myself staring at a postcard reminding me of the girls’ “meet the teacher day” at school — in only 2.5 weeks! Three weeks from tomorrow is the first day of school.

Last summer at this time, school couldn’t come fast enough. I was so overwhelmed with early infanthood, I couldn’t wait to send the older two off to school. Now, the advent of the new school year feels like the worst kind of betrayal. I’m just not ready to give the Big Girls up to school for 6.5 hours a day. No, I’m not nearly ready.

I’m playing around, up at skirt!

  1. Lovely post! I am so tired of all the posts where folks complain about their kids being home all day during the summer. I am looking forward to Arun’s break from school in August and I sort of regretted even putting him in for the summer session.

  2. i have a love/hate relationship with connor being in school. it is nice to have time free to do stuff but damn! it interferes with life so much! i hate all the homework and stuff that messes with his home life and the fact that we have to work around his school year for vacations when his father isn’t working (which is in the winter during school of course).

  3. WOW – ya’all start school early down there in the South. I find it a little depressing. Up North here, we think summer just got started!

  4. I hope you had a wonderful time on vacation-CNN had one of the national parks in Tennessee listed as a great domestic vacation location.

  5. Congrats on the two birthdays and your anniversary.
    When I was at the hospital the other day (with contractions) they asked if this was my 6th pregnancy. I explained that I had three children at home but yes I had two other pregnancies.
    At the time of your 2nd miscarriage, I realized that not all pregnancies result in a baby being born. A sad reality.
