Because the "school company" said so!
I'm fully aware that six weeks from now, I will be begging for a routine and just a few hours alone, but right now, I just want to enjoy several days with my kids with no "to-do list.
See, the school day hours are for me to get my work done. But during the prolonged school vacations, the ease and routine of this work day schedule goes right out the window.However, there still is so much beauty in the moments that comprise the school vacation time, even though it might not be ideal for moms like me that work from home and there really isn't any escaping it anyways.
Parents are feeling ill at ease and restless. It's coming. The end is nigh. For some, it's already here. It's spreading across the nation. Soon, we'll all be swarmed and overrun by hungry hordes of (sanity) killers.
