You know what it’s like, right? You have a lovely vacation week, and then WHAM, it’s back to reality. For me, that reality is a rainy Monday and bored kids. Oh, and 100% humidity that requires an air conditioner. Blech.
Did I ever blog about the Bon Jovi concert? No? What is wrong with me? That was one hell of a show! All American Rejects opened up and they were very good. My poor husband knew none of their songs until my niece played some on her IPod on the way to Boston for him. He liked their music and he is PICKY about his music choices. Then Bon Jovi played a 2 hour show for us and it was just awesome. I could barely talk on the way home from all the
screeching singing I did. Luckily my voice and my hearing returned within a day. It was so incredibly worth waiting 20 years to see them!
My Super Nanny schedule never got put together over vacation. Slacker mom. And we so totally need it, because when Doug leaves for work at 7:30, it’s a really, really long morning until the babies nap at 10. The never ending requests for tv, the “Mom, I’m hungry” whines at 8 am (that is after breakfast at 7), the “playing” with the twins that results in in lots of crying (ok, mostly from me). There are days, many, many days, when I think about going back to work. No, not as a lawyer, but just something to get me out of the house. But oh, what would I do with three kids under 4? So the rational me says “no no, you must wait until all the kids are in school, because you’d having to make a mountain of money to make paying for daycare worth it”. And of course that rational me is totally right, but what I wouldn’t give to be someone other than “mama” every once in a while. Oh the battles I wage in my head.
