It's the time of year I dread...the end of school. Yes, I realize that when I was in school I always looked forward to this time - mostly because the days of studying and tests were interspersed with fun things like field trips, field day, cleaning day and assemblies. Now my problem is that I have 2 amazing girls who want me at all of these events. This wouldn't be a problem if they weren't all scheduled back to back to back and I had an unlimited supply of vacation days. I think I've been up at the school at least 4 days in the last 2 weeks.
Don't get me wrong. I enjoy doing these things with my kids! And I realize that they're only this young once. And my boss is amazing and never bats and eye when I walk into his office and tell him I need Tuesday off, and part of Wednesday and I'll be leaving early on Friday because one has this and the other has that and I can't do one event for Sweet Pea and not the other for Baby Girl.
I'm just ready for the chaos to be over. Oh, and for my sunburn from the trip to the botanical gardens to go away. Now that I think about it, maybe that's why I'm in a foul mood about school events. Tuesday I got fried. No one else. None of the kids (who didn't have sunscreen on that I'm aware) or the other adults who went. Just little old me. I didn't even think I'd been in the sun that long. And yesterday I was all set to go to field day...it was rained out. At least I wasn't caught outside in the rain. Honestly, the way my week's been going I'm surprised I wasn't.
Baby Girl has started whining and asking me when school was going to be over. I keep telling her a few weeks. But inside I really wanna whine with her.
What have you been whining about lately?
