Yes, I’m one of those moms. You know the one, where they tear up at goodbyes for school, and no this is not just on day one, I’m talking all year. I love having my baby home, I love my day consisting of pulling her in and out of her car seat, making frantic public bathroom runs in the grocery store, this means I have my bestie with me every step of the way. I don’t understand how this is not a good thing. Don’t get me wrong, I like my space, and often find myself craving it during the days but I get it at night, and I look forward to it. Me, my tea, and thoughtless TV.
I’ve seen so many harmless jokes filling my news feed about parents excitement with school starting next month and I’m not going to be one that gets all up in arms about it, I’ll admit it makes me laugh. But honestly, I don’t see it, I can’t help but feel sad for the day she goes back. I like my baby home, I like her driving me crazy, I like her sitting in on my bathroom breaks and questioning my word choices in the day (mama! you know stupid is not a nice word). When she goes back this year I only lose her for 2 days out of the week, but next year, oh gawd someone hold me, I’m going to lose her for 5.
Mamas, to those of you who have children in school 5 days a week, tell me, how do you cope? I mean I’ll have enough to do, I need no recommendations for that (cleaning house, laundry, errands, and of course work), but what I am actually asking you for is coping methods on dealing with missing them so much? How do you deal?
Feel free to reach out to me anyway you please and send along your coping methods, or if you would prefer pop me a private message please do with the form below. Me and my emotions thank you dearly in advance.
