School ended for my kids last Friday and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't jumping for nine different kinds of joy.
First I shall say the requisite (and true): my kids attend a great school with excellent teachers, are really blossoming as learners and I intend to encourage that in any way I can.
Now that that's out of the way.Let me say it to you all, because we're that kind of honest with each other, right?
I thought I'd been freed of nightly homework many moons ago.
Not.So. Every night from September to June, I'd sit alongside of my kids and pour through pages of homework while secretly wanting to rip my hair out (ok, so maybe some of it was mildly fun. But only when I wasn't dog tired from work which is never. And the geometry for 1st graders = sheer torture)
Many a day I prayed for the secret homework fairy (I think she's part of the calgon take me away family) to come and take over. She never did.
But now, I have 2 months of peace and while this summer won't be completely academic free it is homework free and for that I am in hog heaven.
School's out for summer, bitches!
What isn't funnier than an Alice Cooper /Muppet performance?
