Thursday June 17th is our last day of school. In other words, it's the end of the world as we [i.e., moms] know it, but I feel fine...really! There is no stress or anxiety here. I have field trips and lesson plans all lined up. I'm ready to dive into a summer full of exhilarating activities and hands-on learning for my curious kids. In no time I'll consider myself a full-fledged, home-school-capable mom.
Oh, you don't believe me? Welcome to the club - me neither. Truth is, I'm scared. Over the years I picked up a few hobbies to try and nurture the intellectual balance between diapers and the NY Times. Several businesses, blogs, and social media endeavors later, I seemed to have collected about four full time jobs. Hmph. That wasn't exactly the plan.
So what do we do now, ladies? The answer is probably one of the best lessons of all. We chill, we camp, we eat popsicles, and we spend all day blowing up a kiddie pool, and we fall behind on the infamous projects. [Insert cliche of the universe here] ==> They are only young once.
Go in with a good attitude. Even if it only lasts 10 minutes, at least you made the effort. I'll meet you all on the other side, at BlogHer!
