The merry, merry month of May. Truly it is. The month of Mary. Mother’s Day. My birthday. My sister and nephew’s birthdays. Memorial Day. Graduations. The coming promise of summer. All good stuff. Truly.
And then, there is the avalanche of the end-of-the-school-year stuff. End of course exams. Banquets. Concerts. Field Trips. Band sign up for the coming year. Take it all and multiply it by the number of kids you have and crap…suddenly May kind of sucks. It’s like pouring 10 pounds of something into a 5 pound bag. And it’s all GOOD stuff, so it’s really dumb for me to whine, but dang. It’s exhausting.
The light at the end of the tunnel is no more projects, homework agendas, exams, early wake ups and fight to GET. IN. BED. ALREADY! Because even though teenagers NEED a crazy amount of sleep, for some reason they are night owls who fight it. It’s a vicious cycle.
Summer is coming. Long days. A rest (of sorts) to the schedule. Beach days. Friends, fun and boredom. Bring it on. Now….just need to figure out when my friends are available to play!!
May the 4th be with you. All month long!!
