Yes ... in THEORY I'm thrilled ... no more lunches! ... in reality I'm dreading it! Well - I'm not dreading the WHOLE summer ... just the first week or two. Those without kids don't know what I'm talking about ... or those with older kids may FORGET what I'm talking about but this with kids 6 and 9 know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. The first week or two of summer are BRUTAL! Every year it's the same - the girls fight, bicker and whine from morning to night. Anyone who knows me know I have patience for that kind of nonsence for approximately 10 seconds and then I snap. Yep - so far this summer is right on track. The girls weren't home for 2 hours before Alicia was throwing a tantrum and had a time out! Everything calmed down after about half an hour and the rest of the day was saved but MAN it has me more than a little scared for what is to come! *lol*

Here is my super quick version:
OK - it's very late for the girls to be up and they won't go to bed without a snuggle from Mom so I'm off. Enjoy the first few days of summer ... if you can *lol*
Have a stampy night!
