If I’m being honest, I dread summers just a little bit.
I am in charge of keeping five human beings engaged and active. Otherwise, they’ll melt down on each other and me. The yelling, crying, fighting, and complaining is what causes most (Ok, ALL) moms to jump for joy on the first day of school.
Add that I work from home and that my productivity tanks during the summer, and it’s easy to see why moms clamor for camps and outsourced activities to keep sane.
