Summer Vacation! Yay!

My older daughter just finished four weeks of day camp. She loved it. I found it stressful because of how it disrupted her sister’s naps. But at least I wasn’t double-teamed all day every day.

Camp’s over. It’s full-on summer vacation time. From now until after Labor Day. Lord, help me.

You grew up living for summer vacation. Then you got a job, and vacation was just as big a deal. Then you had kids, and summer vacation was… well, it was time away from work anyway.

Unless taking care of the kids is your work. Then “vacation” means overtime. Every day.

I’m looking at seven weeks of extreme overtime. Maybe I’ll finally lose that sticky five pounds I picked up over winter. What I won’t do, however, is find time to churn out a bunch of words here twice a week.

Luckily I’ve got a stack of parenting-related cartoons I can slap up here instead. Which means easy breezy summer reading for you! And less insanity for me. Thank you for understanding.

Have a great summer vacation. And if you need any help getting your beach body back, why not join us on the playground for a few days. The kids and I will whip you right into shape. Of course, then you’ll really need the vacation.

  1. Taking care of kids is my work, too. I hope you find more time to post stuff other than just cartoons. I enjoy reading about other folks in my predicament. Luckily I don’t have to endure seven weeks of vacation. Kindergarten starts early in August for my boy and PMO starts the same week for my little girl. I’m looking forward to more time for myself and my writing.

    Keep up the great work. I look forward to your posts.

    • In the words you’ve probably used a thousand times yourself, we’ll see.

      Thanks for reading, thanks for caring.
