Finally, the school year has finished and we are into our first debratting day. That means I instantly become a mediator and hostage negotiator as the kids discover how to be with each other for extended periods of time for the third day in a row.
The school bags have been tucked away, the uniforms have been pushed to the other side of the wardrobe and we are settling into 6 weeks of family time. The hallmark family loving imagery is far from what I’m seeing today, but I’m hopeful it’s coming, or Santa won’t be.
So while I’m being harrassed for food once again and negotiating toys from their hostage situation I will hold this quote in my heart and know that one day this week the kids will settle down and we can all enjoy Christmas together.
Are you enjoying the holidays?
