School starts the day after tomorrow, which is also the day I will begin working again for the fall semester. Last week was a good week, and I stepped back from any serious parenting analysis and just enjoyed the days, which were mellow and fun, with very little fussing or fighting from the kids.
Tonight, however, some of the usual issues reared their heads (struggles over limiting screen time and the kids fighting) and I found myself feeling anxious about the impending school year.
Tomorrow is our last day of summer vacation, and I’m hoping for great things — a fun, relaxed day, early bed time and, on my part, the magical emergence of a plan for healthy living/ happy parenting to carry me into this next season. I’ll let you know how that works out.
