Did school really end just two weeks ago? 

Are you already ready for your kids to go back to school? 

Are you now preparing three full meals a day and snacks for not just your kids but for half of the neighborhood?

Is your Tween ungrateful?
Is your Teen hormonal?

Do you make really Awesome plans to get out of the house and nobody wants to go? 

Does everyone pile in the car, then whine and argue the whole trip?

Are you constantly hearing "can so and so spend the night?"

Do your kids think you are a money tree? 

Are you already broke and June isn't even over yet?
Is your spouse worse than the kids at times? 

Do you keep checking the Calendar for the first day of School? 

Are your grandkids really cute but tearing up your house?

If your kids being around the house all day is driving you crazy I've got just the Meme for you! 

(Starts tomorrow and runs every Monday through Summer)

So funny and so true! Do you remember the Staples commercial a couple of years ago where the mom was pushing the shopping cart around Staples with a big grin on her face, happy daisy's floating around in the scene. Everything was in slow motion and the kids were hanging off the cart, complaining about going back to school. That commercial cracked me up. So spot on.

I'm pretty sure there are throngs of moms feeling the exact same way!

All of those sound like my house! That's why I took a summer job but that hasn't kept them from calling me!

Stacie said...

This cracked me up. Looking forward to this meme :)

I think my only saving grace is the pool. Now if the weather would cooperate, I'd be fine. I might just take them even if it isn't really hot!

I might only half participate in this. My daughter needs to go back. My son starts kindergarten and I'm not quite ready yet. I need the next few months to prepare for that.
