I know I am not the only mom looking forward to back to school. I love my kids, and I love spending lazy summer days with them (even busy ones), but I also love the structure that back to school provides.
Whether you are a stay at home mom with a plan for that first day, or a working mom with the day off to drop the kids off, or even a mom who never gets a break and works every day no matter what…
It’s so important to take a bit of time out.
The summer is busy! If it’s not busy with the kids home, then it’s busy with camp drop offs, or time with babysitters or grandparents, or you just try to squeeze a bit of daily summer chaos into your summer schedule.
Sometimes a mom has to just put her feet up for a bit, or her head down for a bit! And that’s that!
I always have big dreams for that first day back! Finally, I can get this done, or do that errand, or send those emails, or what ever those other million things are that moms keep floating track of in their heads!
Well I am telling you, if you can take the day off, or if you finally have a moment to yourself…
Don’t over plan on that day, save that for the next day, or even the next week! It’s ok to just enjoy the quiet…as short lived as it may be!
