I got these tattoos at the dollar store. The kids loved them.

Summer is this weird thing for moms. At first you are super excited to have all the kids home again. Hello sleeping in, pj's until ten, hello late movie nights in the middle of the week, hello not having to argue about getting dressed or homework, hello not packing lunches, hello reading for fun. Then the kids start to fight. They bicker in the backseat over whose arm is where. They argue over who gets which Popsicle and who gets to check the mail. They argue over which TV programs to watch and who was first in line. Shopping with all four with a holy nightmare. I ended up in this uneasy limbo. Giddy at having them home, wishing for them to be back in school. I think a visit to the grandparents would have made the summer easier but because of finances and lack of days off we spent the whole summer at home. Luckily we did find a few cool things to do.
