Why do we expect to obtain an instant mellowed out state of mind with the summer season? Our lazy summer days became busier than expected and are fading far too quickly. My "to be accomplished" list tends to have more on it than I'll ever have time to accomplish. Similar to "my eyes are bigger than my stomach" when it comes to delicious foods. Everything seems to be bubbling out of my brain and swimming around in my head. Summer break is not as relaxing as planned.
The school free time with my boys was intended to be full of fun. Except at times they decide not to cooperate. I love my boys dearly and do enjoy extra time with them. Yet, we deal with more sibling squabbles when school is not in session. Any parent knows that won't bring you extra peace.
There is plenty left to be done before summer ends. Time will continue to tick by. My boys won't be princes of perfection. Yet, I wouldn't trade these not-so-lazy summer days for anything. Time with them is precious and before I know it, they'll be grown.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
