Summer is half way over and I am astonished at the number of people I meet (when I spring lose out of my cage occasionally) that look at me and say “I bet you can hardly wait until they are all back in school!” This statement is hilarious given that it is usually delivered to me by another mom of two (maximum three) children and often after I have witnessed this parent’s exasperation at the antics of their offspring in public. I am often incognito. Shopping or running errands with just a nominal few from my tribe. I appear in the grocery store as someone who can be trusted as I almost pass for “normal” by society’s standards by having only 2 or three kids with me.

I'm with you! I have a new teenager, two experienced teenagers and two who just became legal at home this summer, plus many of their friends who appreciate the fact that there are usually two parents at home and an extra bed. I love the summer and am feeling a bit blue that some of them will be going back to school in a month.

Maybe the more kids we have, the more we enjoy them. :-)
