Today I was hanging out with my kids all day, as I tend to do on Mondays. We had half of a really nice day, and half of a really normal for preschoolers day. Which is to say, they were just short of atrocious. In the midst of part two of my day when I was imploring my children not to spit in our minivan, this thought hit me:
SPRING BREAK MEANS MY KIDS DON’T GO TO SCHOOL.
I know. I know. This is the whole idea behind spring break. People have been talking about this week forever. Last week we got practice, since half of Houston was out last week and everything was packed. Yet somehow I missed the realization and the implication of what this week means for me. Because my kids only really go to school two full days, it’s a little easier to see how I got confused.
In any case, this week the posts will be a little sporadic, considering two days I usually write are now going to be filled with other, less write-y things. Like trying to keep the boys from burning down the house.
You may be in the same boat. That’s why this week is a FREE LINK week! No prompt! Use an older post! (But please add a link back, even if just in text and not in the sidebar button.) Forget guidelines! (Though I always love people visiting one another, which I am STILL catching up on…) Be free! Channel Buster Bluth when Gangy is gone: Spring break always makes me think of the Bluths and Arrested Development, but Kitty (famous for spring break antics as seen above) is too inappropriate. Buster, however…a box of wine, pajamas, and a hook for a hand. What more could you ask for? Spring break, wooooooo!
Write freely, little ones. Write like the wind. Write like you’re having a margarita made in your mouth at Señor Tadpoles. (And if little of this post makes sense, you should perhaps spend spring break watching Arrested Development.) Back to regularly scheduled programming next week.
