Da-dum, da-dum, da da-da-da-da da-da-da-da…..AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGHHH!!!
Yep, that would sum it up in a nutshell!
2 more months until the twins are in Kindergarten – a full day of school! – and though we’re nearly there, we’ve still got summer vacation to get through.
I’ve got to guard against “summer brain-drain”, lest they forget every bit of educational goodness that was hand-fed by patient pre-k teachers into their little noggins.
I won’t get my morning ‘mama nap’ for the next few months.
And somehow I’ve got to entertain my little wild bunch – visions of me in a tophat and tails, tap-dancing around, fill my head.
And of course, it looks as though we’re off to a roaring good start – I’m sick.
Head-pounding, sore-throat, waterfalls of mucus cascading down my sinus passages, body hit-by-a-train pains all over – yeah, we’re good to go all right!
And adding to that misery, is the disappointment, that so far as the twins’ B-day party goes – only 2 people has RSVP’d to say they’re coming. We’ve had four others say they’re traveling out of state this summer, and all of the rest – nary a peep! I’ve even tried leaving messages on their phones, but they’ve all gone to ground it seems.
I blame myself.
A) I had no idea that summer vacation WASN’T the best time to have a B-day party, because…..that’s when many families have THEIR big vacation travel plans…d’oh!!
B) I accidentally wore this:
to Halle’s friend’s B-day party about a month ago. I was on the way back from the World Steampunk Faire, and it totally slipped my mind that I had this on, as we merrily made our way into the midst of the party.
I’ve probably been deemed as someone that Polite Society should shun. Including my girls’ B-day party.
Or maybe it is just a REALLY BAD TIME TO HOLD A CHILD’S B-DAY PARTY.
WHY was I not told about this? Really, this is the kind of stuff that would be useful to know. Maybe Pre-K should issue a memo: Attn parents – if you’re planning to hold a b-day party for your child, DO NOT schedule it during any kind of school holiday break or summer vacation.
Apparently everyone else except me.
Ok, I’ll stop the whining now 🙂
