I don’ t have to look at the calendar to know summer is over tomorrow. My first rough morning today getting my three young kids out the door to school pretty much solidified it. We ran out of milk (how did I overlook that?), my daughter didn’t like her outfit, and my precious new kindergartner was crying he was going to miss me.
I am sure it would have all been fine if my reaction was one like you read about in those parenting handbooks before you actually have children and are thrown into real life. Ya know the ones I am talking about – for instance, when I ran out of milk, instead of cursing I should have turned around Mary Poppins style and said – “Guess what kids! We are going to have such a fun time thinking of things to have for breakfast without milk!!”
I am convinced the authors of those parenting books are in a cushy quiet office, don’ t have kids, and think -”yeah, that sounds like it’ll work…”
So it is no wonder I am inspired to write about spas today….
