I’m beginning to think that winter break really didn’t end yet. After all, the kids haven’t been back to school for a full week yet since they got off for the holidays.

First, of course, was winter break. Then, their first week back, they got off Thursday and Friday for snow days. (Really, Thursday was the snow calendarday, but Friday was just a COLD day. Can’t risk frost bite at the bus stop, I guess.) Then last week, the school had an Early Dismissal Day on Friday (to give everyone a jump on the 3 day weekend maybe?). So, in true Super Mommy form, I took our Cub Scout den to my gym for Rock Climbing! (So why is it that when a couple of the scouts are acting up, it turns out to be MY kids? Sigh.) Then, of course, today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, so no school again.

Looking ahead, if all goes according to plan (HA!), they should be in school for the next two weeks solid, then a week with a half day, then we have President’s Day.

Seriously, what do parents do who have to work full time? How do they deal with all these days off school?

All I’m hoping for is to get back to some sort of a schedule that doesn’t get interrupted by little people all the time! As much as I love the little people in my life, they do tend to get in the way sometimes, right? :)
