Confessions of a Summer Mama

It’s almost – but not quite…summer.

Which means the summer vacation looms.

Which means I get to spend time with the kids. The whole day. For 6 weeks X 7 days!

Which means I’ll soon be tearing my hair out.

How do I get through the  days?

Negotiate…

This starts the day and normally goes like this –

 If you

…clean your room

…stop bickering for 5 minutes

…get up in the morning after 7 AM

I’ll let you

…stay up an extra half an hour,

…have an ice-cream,

…have half an hour more on the tablet

Berate…

This is normally by late afternoon after they haven’t obviously cleaned their rooms, stopped bickering for even a second and woken up at 5.30 AM ready to start the day.

Inebriate…

This is me at the end of the day – 10 pm. Bring on the Proseco/Gin/Vodka/Cocktails

When the children have just gone to bed after having had a sugar rush – yes I know I shouldn’t have given them those meringues for dessert. But, I did serve them with strawberries so they’re healthy, right?

Rinse and repeat  – the glass that is!
