I'm not "that" mom.
I'm really not normally the mom that doesn't want her kids to be out of school. I always feel bad for kids when I overhear "that mom" saying she needs a drink because the kids are out of school for the summer, or she is "counting the days" until they go back to school. This summer though, I am mildly terrified for some reason by the prospect of keeping all 4 of them happy for the entire duration of the long, hot, summer. I don't know why I am letting it cause me so much anxiety, I'm sure it will be fine. I have 2 weeks left until I need to get it together and figure out a "new normal" for the rest of the summer. I think that I would give my left arm for a pool in the backyard so that I don't have to deal with schlepping them all down there every couple of days. Too bad you can't win the lottery when you don't play it.
