  • Mostly happy, except that the thought of keeping an active five-year-old entertained all day long leaves me feeling a little desperate. Still, I love her to death and enjoy hanging out with her. We'll have a lot of fun.

  • I love the freedom we have when the kids are home.

    I know a couple of people that get upset when their kids are home for breaks because it upsets their routine and they have to juggle babysitters.

    But we love it. We do fun themed days. Movie day, pajama day, reading day, games day and so on.

  • Sad. Vacations usually mean my children bickering non stop all day. During the summer I can send them outside so I don't have to listen to it.
