Moms of schoolchildren, Do you long for Summertime and your kids home or do you dread your kids home all day? Why?!

A bit of both. I like not having to get up early, iron uniforms, pack lunches, have a day full of schedule (because usually all the extra curriculars stop during school holidays too), and being able to do SOME fun activities with the kids, but at at the same time, I still have to get my work done, and I spend half my day also refereeing or entertaining, and end up behind with my it's a bit of a double edged sword really.

I love getting to sleep in a bit and having a slow start to the day, but I hate the bickering of the constant togetherness and trying to keep up w/ 3 very active kids who have at least a million times more energy than I have. Not to mention that starting this summer they'll be gone 4 weeks w/ their father and I'm not looking forward to that at all. I'm glad they'll get to see him and spend time w/ him, but it is TOO LONG to be away from my babies....
