Summer vacation is the longest two months of the year for parents.
Even if you go into the summer holidays with an arsenal of plans to keep the kids busy, somehow by the end of the summer it’s your kids who are making the plans and you’re stuck running around trying to make sure they don’t burn anything down.
As kids, summer holidays seemed way too short. We could never understand why our parents were so eager for school to start again. Do you hate me, mom?!
The truth is, it wasn’t that our parents didn’t want us to enjoy our summer vacation. It’s that parents need those 10 months of the year to recover from having the kids home for the summer.
Because soon enough it’s summer vacation all over again.
