Yep, it’s that time again.
It’s school holidays
And they are off to Nanna and Poppys for a week.
And not a moment to soon…………
They got to have the first week of the holidays with Mr Cruisey but for week 2, rather than fork out the money that equates to a house deposit for school care, they are off to Nanna and Poppys.
So by the time school holidays gets here, we’re all done. They’re tired and ratty and whinny and argumentative and in our case, the horrid hormonal monster has been visiting a fair bit. We’ve had the emotional unstable monster, the angry monster, the down right psychotic hormonal beast of a monster and it has wiped me out!
So, Mum came to pick the boys up on Friday while I was at work so of course the first thing I did when I got home was to
de flea clean the place. I put away the mattresses that had been out for the week from their sleep overs in Moomoos room. I dusted, vacuumed, mopped. I picked up clothes, water bottles and put away games. I had the place spick and span all the while keeping an eye on Beverley Hills 90210 (yes, I know, shut up, I>LOVE>IT).
I look forward to a week of less washing – although, just like Ethan Hawke in Reality Bites, their clothes keep showing up in each load. I look forward to a week of peace. I look forward to a week of not really having plans for dinner (yeah ok, kids here or not, that’s nearly everyday). I look forward to a week of sanity. I look forward to missing them so bad that I can’t wait to see them.
Mr Cruisey and I are really grateful to Mum and Pops in the fact that the kids can go to their place and despite a little resilience every now and then (and a few Poppy gets grumpy comments), the boys love it.
So I hope you’re all enjoying the school holidays doing whatever it is that you’re doing.
Let’s hope Dawn still feels this way by Friday….
