School Daze

school daze

I’m a huge Spike Lee fan, but in case you were wondering, no, I am not going to be writing or talking about his hit 1988 film School Daze. I’m talking about the daze I’m left in after looking after two tween aged kids for one month straight. Don’t get me wrong, I do cherish this time with them and realize they are short, so please don’t misunderstand or misinterpret me, as some of you often do.

But as a mom who works from home, it’s hard to entertain two kids who still love and crave all my attention. And it’s a lot of work to keep two them content, fed and safe 24/7.  At ages 9 and 11, they’re very techno focused and it takes a lot of work to plan days keeping them out in the sunshine.

It’s hard to keep up! Today I went to a doctor’s appointment without a referral. My daughter’s piano teacher came to the house with my daughter nowhere to be found (she was at a friend’s house). My son’s soccer practice relocated with no email alert and we went galavanting around town looking for his team. I had work deadlines and phone calls and a locker to help decorate at my daughter’s new school (yep, middle school beckons).

I’m a daze, to say the least.

But this video will be me in 8 hours!!!!!!!!!!

  1. I felt exactly like that picture up top all summer!

  2. Although challenging to say the least, enjoy these days Holly. I just dropped my darling off at college. hmmm… not sure what to make of it still – life transitions.

    • That must be so strange, Lisa! And yes, you are so right. Every now and then I look at them and think of how much they’ve grown in the last 5 or so years and how much they will change in the next 5. It’s mind-boggling and I so want to freeze time.
