the deep end…..

I’ m going to tell you a secret…..but you must keep it to yourself.

I. am. done.with summer. break.

I will let you in on another secret…..

so. are. my. kids.


what you are about to see….i warn you……is my day to day life.

I was just telling my friend yesterday that i am surprised i have not had a mental breakdown this summer.

I can’t even take the kids to Target without pulling one of them aside and practically beating them with the closest broom……

and then flying off on that broom…..

because the lady watching me is about to pull her cell phone out and call security…..and the sad part is…I want to say to her…..I dare you.

and i love perusing through all the lovely blogs and reading about how some of you make playdough with your kids and have shaving cream fights in the front yard……

really?

because i tried the whole shaving cream thing……and you know what happened…..i didn’t get awesome photo’s of the kids having a total blast……

i got kids screaming that their eye’s were burning and for me to call 911.

i got kids that had an allergic reaction to the cream and had what looked like 3rd degree burns all over

their body……

and that playdough we tried making………

one of my kids ate it…….and had green poop the rest of the week…..

it was AWESOME!

I’ve made the decision…and it was a hard one…….

not to homeschool this year. I really thought it was my calling to gather all my beautiful children around the dining room table….have a curriculum……..but you know what…..

we sat down the other night and voted.

everyone….including my husband….decided that it was in the best interest of the children to send them back to public school.

It was a hard decision…..but…..if i want my days to look like ……..

this picture above…..nice…smiling….little happy creatures….then i best get these children back in school.

Please tell me i’m normal? I have no more patience.

I.am.exhausted.

We had our back to school day yesterday…..when the kids find out their teachers and get their pictures taken….and as we were {not so patiently} waiting in line for out turn….i noticed a cute mom and her adorable little boy {who just so happened to be wearing the same shirt as mason that we got at the infamous target shopping trip} at the back of the line…….and she kept looking at me and smiling……

so after we made it thru the line and were walking to the back the cute mom waved at me……

so i walk over and she say’s……I read your blog…..and i love it…..love your music….

so i thanked her……then i introduced myself…….{while feeling on cloud nine for a moment}

and thought to myself…..

I better not write this post……especially because people that know my children are going to read it….

but then i thought……

I know I am not alone……

I am so tired of summer. I just am.

There is a week and a half left till school starts…….

please tell me i will make it.
