A View From My Point

and so today they closed at 10

why bother to even go in?

At the school it’s all quiet

I don’t know why – I was expecting a stampeding riot

the Eldest, is running around screaching, up a tree

the Youngest escapes from his space at my knee

‘cool, ‘cool, ‘cool’ –  he chants

His sister is doing a victory dance

she can’t wait to  go to Grade One

I hope it lasts, this sense of Fun

We snap a pic of her and Teach

they’ve packed up all the toys and books out of reach

And now we’re at home

I’ve read them each a tome

Now what? A month of this?

Someone must be taking the piss!

Although maybe it’s not all bad

there is one thing that is making me glad

I get to influence them like I want

teach them what is important

deal with the difficult questions and encourage more

show them how to use a card when we go to the store

fill in the gaps that the school doesn’t get to

that’s a plan for a month – and then Shoo, shoo, shoo

I’m done for in January and will need a break of my own

but wait that’s not possible, this Mommy job has a contract of stone.

    • Hey, there are people living in grey, wet, cold places – we don’t want them to be all jealous and hating of our awesome Beach Life!

        This might be true! But they will have many things we’ll be jealous of! I know u can be subtle at bragging 😉

      • one thing I do miss about the Northern Hemisphere living is buying Haagen Daz any time of the day or night….

    I also want to go to the beach, but I do not want to take a child to Grade 1!

    • Step One – don’t have any babies – inevitably they’ll need to go to pre-school and then Grade One. or Step Two – have babies and raise them to be Home Schooled, can I suggest having more than one? That way your investment in school stuff is more worth while :-D. Go to the beach, spoil yourself 😉

so - what do you think? Not in general, just about THIS post:
