Today, after 6 weeks holidays, my children finally go back to school….yaay! 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, I love them dearly, I cherish every moment and time I can spend with them, and I’m aware that they are growing up fast and before I know they will not be wanting to spend time with their mummy and daddy anymore… And when that time happens I will probably be sobbing and crying!
But, as a mother and a human-being, I like to enjoy a little freedom without my children tagging along or nagging. I like a bit of free time being me, without the mummy name’s tag. I probably still talking about my children, see that’s the sign that I’m still a mother no matter what! 🙂 So yeah, this week in our household every thing back to routine again. Wake up, have my coffee, wake them up, make their lunch-box, breakfast, get dressed, double-check backpack, drop them off to school, then….a little ‘me’ time before school pick up again. The ‘me’ time here is also including some house errands, groceries, cleaning, pay bills, walking the dog, going to gym, not merely doing nothing and sipping coffee though 🙂 The difference is I can do all those things in peace and quiet and quick! Then after 3pm I am back being a mum’s taxi here and there again, while juggling between cooking dinner, and homework. Then repeat the next day.
My children are so not looking forward to go back to school, hahaha…! Mostly because they don’t like their year 6 teacher…:) But, they are keen to see their friends again. They are in grade six this year, the last year in Primary school. So I predict this year the boys and I are going to be double if not triple busy with their school activities and preparation for graduation etc. It’s going to be an exciting year but also kind of sad. Sad, merely for me perhaps….because soon they are going to be in middle school, they will be a teenager. Oh….how time flies, I want them to be still like they are now…. quite independent but still wanting cuddles and kisses, still have that innocence and cute face, still my babies.
What about you? If you have kids, are your children happy to be back to school again after such a long holidays? Do you feel happy too that they are going back to school so you can have your alone time? Please do say yes, so I am not the only one being a selfish mummy here! 🙂
Welcome back to school children! I hope your first day is awesome, can’t wait to see you again this afternoon 🙂 🙂
