How to Lose your Mind in a Summer

A how-to guide for any mom aspiring to insanity:

Step 1: Have 9 kids

Step 2: Decide to fill every week of the summer with at least one specialist appointment, preferably two or more.

Step 3: Throw in a weekly session of Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy

Step 4: Make sure your older children have the best possible activity schedule (as in non-stop)

Step 5: Live in a school district that opts not to bus for the summer “enrichment program” that the 5 youngest kids attend, so you get to transport 5 kids to 2 different locations at 2 different drop off/pick up times, 4 days a week for a month

Step 6: Do not plan a vacation

Step 7: Expose your children to germs so that several get a virus the same week

Just when you think you see the oasis of school on the horizon, and think you may survive without the complete loss of your mind……

Start a major roofing project the last week and half of summer, make sure they start work on the back of the house making the pool unavailable in the heat, and try watching the letter sounds video a few more times……

Only 10 more days, but who’s counting?
