Back to the Daily Grind

January 3, 2012 - Kristy MacKaben
Did anyone else have miserable children this morning? I love how our kids had the luxury to sleep in late every morning during Christmas break, though my own lovelies preferred to wake up around 6:30 a.m. So, what time did they wake up this morning: the first day back to school? 8 a.m.!! I know that doesn't sound super late, but that's a miracle in our house. Not only did they not want to wake up, but getting Julie ready for school was a very dramatic affair. All of the sudden she decided she doesn't want to go to school because she already knows everything. "All we learn is letters and sounds. That's so boring," she whined. Then, she informed me she didn't want to go to school because she couldn't play with stuffed animals there. Then, she didn't want to go to school because her socks felt weird. The root of the problem is something we all feel after a two week vacation: major letdown and maybe a tad bit of depression. I admit I felt it! Scott's mom left today after visiting for 2 1/2 weeks. Some of my friends look at me like I'm insane when I tell them my mother-in-law visits for that long. But, I love having her. We all do. She's such a huge help, and she's just fun to have around. We were so sad to see her leave today. I found myself tearing up driving home from the airport today, and Johnny kept asking me in this pitiful voice "Why did Grandma go back to California?" Not only was Scott's mom gone, but Scott was back to working his normal long hours. So, I guess today felt a little lonely and sad. Getting back to normal isn't easy!
