I'm sure anyone out there with kids will understand, but for those of you that don't here is a little run down on school holidays :)
Sleep in!!!! YAY!!!! No rushing around like a mad women in the morning, after lying in bed WELL after the alarm went off, trying to get the kids to get dressed, brush their teeth, pack school bags, get lunch made (who made the rules it had to be HEALTHY???) and find those school shoes that mysteriously went missing over night!!
Oh how I LOVE school holidays!!
Yes the kids are home, but truly..... i actually miss them when they are at school these days (shock horror!)
School holidays means lots of playing, beach time, play grounds, lunch dates with my little people (morning and afternoon tea if they want, i wont say no to a decent coffee!) and snuggles on the couch watching movies. I LOVE holidays (have I said that already??? I really do!)
The house is like a bombs gone off, I cant get in the laundry for the pile of unwashed clothes (means I don't have clothes needing folded or ironed tho!!), the car resembles a sandpit, the lounge room is a cubby house, and my photography editing is out of control!!
My little photography business gets neglected during the school holidays, editing gets behind, blogging hardly happens, and I realize I have run out of USBs (yes just today I realize, when I need them!!!!) ...so those sessions I have edited cant be delivered anyway!! Far out!!!
I know I cant have it both ways
A) organised life and kids at school
B) total chaos but oh so much fun!
I know my choice.....B!!
The kids won't be young forever, and they won't think mum howling out the car window like a dog is cool for ..well...much longer! So I choose B and hope all my wonderful clients totally understand. My kids come first. You will get your photos, on a USB, soon, one day, someday, soon, i promise.
Enjoy life. Enjoy your kids. Enjoy school holidays.
