I have been known to be a little up-tight.
Rules are the rules.
Just ask the kiddos.
No you don’t get to miss school for a vacation. No you don’t get to stay home just to stay home. If you do stay home don’t plan on playing. There was always at least one kid up on the stage for perfect attendance each quarter. I was proud of that fact.
I think I have relaxed a bit.
The kiddos have missed all week of school.
Monday they stayed home because of Grandpa-Great’s funeral.
Tuesday they stayed home because it had been a long few days and just wanted them around me.
Wednesday they were home because it was Veteran’s Day.
Thursday they were home because they were already behind on their homework.
And Friday they stayed home because why mess with a good thing?
We didn’t get dressed. The kiddos played the wii for HOURS. We snacked. Some of us took naps. We didn’t do chores.
It was nice.
I might be in the running for Mom of the Year.
I think I can count on at least four votes. Ham, of course is a wild card.
And Monday it’s back to the grind…or maybe not.
