is summer over yet?
Are you ready to hear something shocking? Yesterday, a mother at the park said she was dreading the start of school because she was going to miss her kids.
I’m sorry, but WHAT?
The truth is that I don’t miss Maya one bit while she’s at school. Maybe this is because I am working and the time goes by quickly…maybe this is because I believe absence makes the heart grow fonder…or maybe it’s just because I’m thrilled that Maya’s entertainment is somebody else’s problem for 6 hours.
Now before you start feeling bad for my kid know this: Maya is happy to be away from me for a good part of the day, as evidenced by the fact she often asks if we can leave for school early. As in 6:15 am.
I know this isn’t healthy behavior but I’m not going to worry about it too much because I expect Maya’s therapist will explore this further with her in about decade or so. And thanks to my diligent contributions, her therapy fund is in a really solid place right now.
All I know is that I am beyond excited that school is right around the corner. Here’s what I won’t miss about summer.
- The ridiculously early pick-up time of summer camp.
- The non-stop quest to find things to keep Maya busy after summer camp and before bedtime.
- The ridiculously early pick up time of summer camp.
Is it September 7th yet?
