First Day of Summer

It's the first day of summer.
School ended yesterday.
It's only 9:30 in the morning
and I want the kids to go back.
I didn't get to sleep in,
because they still woke up early.
They dumped cereal on the floor.
They are constantly fighting.
"She hit me!"
"She said I was stupid!"
On and on and on....
it goes.
Someone has already been grounded
because I can't stand the arguments.
I bet the prescriptions for Zoloft
go up in the summer months.

I feel your pain 100%. We were lucky to be up at 7:30 so we didn't have to rush to get to school on time. Schools out...wake up now is 6:45! Give me a break!

That is funny- I have the opposite reaction! I am so glad that school is almost over and summer is coming! I can't wait to see my own kids again. Though I can tell you - if the school year were any longer and I had to deal with all the fighting and arguing and what not here any longer - I would need some good meds!

i hope it's not like this ALL SUMMER for you -- although i think i know the answer to that.

ps: why is school out already? doesn't it go till the end of June? or is that just a Canadian thing??

I have no kids so I can't relate exactly. But I can imagine. And to think you're going to add another little one to the craziness!!

On one hand, the "freedom" from schedules will be nice. On the other hand, the boy will be home causing trouble, lol. I loved the poem!
