I’m just going to put it all out there for you right now, no beating around the bush, no denial. I’m a hot mess at the moment. An emotional, wet noodle of a frame. I hope you are sitting down, cuz this one’s coming hard and fast. It’s freakin almost June and my kids are not even close to finishing the school year. I’m experiencing an emotion I rarely, if ever, feel. Envy. I’m envious of all you moms whose kids are sent off for their schooling from Aug-June! This is crazy ironic because all year I laugh at you. I crack up at the back-to-school resolutions ya’ll make (been there, done that). I get all giddy when I’m waking in the morning and leisurely getting the kids up, eating an un-rushed, healthy breakfast, starting school in our pj’s. But today, today, I’m not giddy. No, not at all. I’m actually freaking out. You all are done, we are not! What does this mean? How can this be?
