I don't understand. I mean, sure, if your child is in school all year, I can see how spring break is this awesome time to reconnect and bond (for some parents) but if your child is home every day, what's the deal? Can't you just take a break whenever you want? Celebrate spring all month long? Don't most dads still have to work?
Sorry, I'm just confused. This week is sucking for me. No labor but I cannot walk, eat, bend over. My back is seriously killing me. No dh because this is one of the most busy times of year on campus (because while students play, staff busts their butt to get things done that can't be done while they're here). I had TWO PARENTS ask me to watch their kids for the week (hello? Due the 7th?) and even though I thought I said no pretty nicely, one kid already showed up on our porch, at 9am Monday morning, to 'play'. Eh. NO!
Even if I wanted to go somewhere, everyone who IS out of school is there. I'm GLAD for it really, because it means that parents are with their kids (or the daycares are trying to keep kids out of the building) but that definitely marks it out for us and our sensory defensive kids. And our homeschool group has all this stuff this week, that is going to be C-R-O-W-D-E-D...bowling, park day, meet at the library....
Whine fest over....pass the cheese and crackers. If I could eat anything without being nauseous.
