As an adult, you start counting down things based on when your next vacation is…and even then, you are lucky to get two weeks max at one time.
As a kid, summer vacation seems so long and you don’t even think about counting down the days, cause there are too many to count and then BAM! The leaves slowly start to change, the back to school commercials start to appear and all the sudden you are a week out from early bedtimes and early mornings!
Yikes, as much as I miss the easier days of being a child, I do not miss the anxiety of those days leading up the first day and I definitely don’t miss the sound of my mom’s voice yelling from the bottom of the stairs “It’s time to get up!”
Good luck parents to the next few weeks…although after 6 weeks of having your kids home all day, maybe you are also counting down the days!
