Good-bye to Summer Vacation: One Mom’s Happiness

images

Congrats, my fellow parents… WE MADE IT. Another successful summer vacation is over and it is now Back to School Eve! I just wanted to wish all of the families out there a very restful night’s sleep and a morning full of excitement as your little ones head off to start a new year of learning.

In honor of this special day, I thought I would do something a little different to explain why I just might be a bit more excited than the kiddos for tomorrow morning. What better way to express this than with a homemade tune! Did you just cringe? Well, you’ll have to pull out your singing voice on this one… or maybe just follow my lead (for the sake of any family member within earshot) and sing it in your head. This is based on the “My Favorite Things” tune from the Sound of Music movie.

Raindrops on noses and kids who won’t listen,

Swimming and sweating and sunblock that glistens.

Brown soggy diapers that leak and then cling,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Sweet little faces with dirt by the oodles,

Door slams and s’more grahams and crayons for doodles.

Wild child that screams with the force of their swing,

These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in play dresses and gnarly head bashes,

Mud streaks that smear on their nose and bug rashes.

Long-legged spiders they squish and then fling,

These are a few of my favorite things.

When the kids bite, when they throw things,

When I’m feeling mad,

I simply envision the school year begins

and then I don’t feel so bad!
