I will not have to hear “I’m bored…” at approximately 10:45am every day….

I will not have to clean the kitchen 457 times a day….

I will not have to replenish the apples and goldfish every 10 minutes…

I will have some time at the end of my day to talk to my honey for more than 10 minutes uninterrupted…

I will not go to bed every night with the theme song to Shake it Up, or Good Luck Charlie…or ________ (fill in the blank to the appropriate Disney/Nick/PBS show…)

I will not have to scream to them downstairs…”I told you NO MORE SNACKS” quite as much….

I will not have to hear “I’m really really really really hot mom…” every 5 minutes…

Boy, I’m going to miss those lil stinkers…

We have had a fun summer….but we are ready to get back to work :) (all of us !)

Middle school starts next week….let the games begin.
