Goodbye to that sweet silent cup of coffee in the morning. Sigh.
Goodbye to the untold hours I had to read, and comment on blogs.
Goodbye to my long uninterrupted showers. I will miss you.
Goodbye to lunch dates with adults, with cutlery and linen napkins.
Goodbye my precious manis and pedis. There is no time for you now.
Goodbye to gossipy uninterrupted phone chats!
Goodbye to the quiet.
School’s out for summer!!
HELLO to the noise.
Hello to “There is nothing to eat. I don’t want that She’s bothering me.”
Hello to “Can I have a play date. Please. Now? Please. Why not?”
Hello to pink paint on the deck, and marker on the table.
Hello to sticky melted popsicles running down fingers and dripping off chins.
Hello to rowdiness in the pool, giggles and screams of delight.
Hello to soccer games and grass stains.
Hello to sunscreen, sunburn and swimming by the hour.
Hello to falling off bikes and swings, bumps on the head, splinters in bare feet and Frisbees to the face. Umm. Yes, this is a home of summertime klutzes.
Hello to picnics outside, butterfly chasing and late nights under the stars.
Hello to sneaking in the occasional late night skinny dip!
Don’t hate me, but I do love these two months of “freedom”.
Cheers to all things summer!
