My kids start back to school today.
I've been reading a lot of blogs by Moms who are a little teary eyed about their kids heading back to school.
Not so much.
I will miss being able to sleep in a bit and I really liked the kids not having homework to
fight with me over do.
But, overall? I'm happy. Yes, I was one of the Mamas doing the 'back to school' happy dance today in the school parking lot after I dropped them off.
I like it when my kids go to school. I like my kids having a routine. I like the whole idea of someone else teaching them things. I like my children being with their friends, making new friends and learning how to socialize with their peers.
Okay, let's be honest – I also like the six hours to myself.
I like grocery shopping without them. I like being able to play whatever music I want in the car for a while. I like being able to sing around the house with no one complaining. I like cleaning up the kitchen in the morning and having it stay clean for longer than half an hour.
I love my kids. I miss them when they're not with me. However, I also appreciate their unique personalities even more when we get a little time away from each other.
I only hope their time away from me helps them appreciate their Mama's unique personality a little more too.
