Spring Break

Amazing how your place in life changes your perspective on Spring Break!

When I was a student and then a teacher, I looked forward to Spring Break. Counted the days. Lived every moment of Spring Break excited for that week.

Then I became a mom with young babies. I dreaded spring break. It meant that everywhere I went there were big kids and more people. Our favorite haunts were full (the science museum, the mall play area, even parks!).

Now, as a mom of preschoolers (school-age children if you will), I dread it even more! It's a week where my schedule is in upheaval. I definitely have more quality time with my kiddos and am enjoying our relaxing mornings, but I miss the routine. I SERIOUSLY miss the boys having someone else to bounce their voices off of. While adorable, those kids talk NON STOP!

I can't wait to see what the next stage of Spring Break is!
