I'm just going to skip over the fact that I haven't blogged in a couple of weeks, that I turned 30, celebrated 5 years of marriage and that I went to Montreal to celebrate during my blog hiatus. I'll get back to it when I feel like gathering my thoughts. In the meantime, let's talk about summer!
Yes, summer is almost here (or already here depending on how you define summer for you and your family) and I am surprised to be excited about it. Surprised because last summer was awful - the kids were in a rough patch (18-24 months, you were not my friend), we had record heat for the last two months of my 42-week pregnancy and my A/C was broken for most of that time. Last July pretty much turned me off to summer forever. Or so I thought.
This year, with Matteo and all the classes for Sebastian and Collette, I feel so rushed and busy. Getting Matteo down for a nap and on time so I can wake him up in time to get out of the house and into the car and to whatever overpriced activity I signed us up for has been exhausting! Not that I wouldn't do it again, I'm just tired of it now. I'm ready to take a leisurely pace that compliments summertime so well. With the twins starting school in September (albeit just 2 mornings a week...), I am excited to just go with the flow and live schedule-free. Sure, they will still have a nap schedule - I haven't completely lost it! But I won't feel the need to have each day planned weeks in advance. I'm already relaxed just thinking about it!
So, as of Saturday, if you wanna hang out with some super cool toddlers, a very cute baby and me, we are officially free :) And we have a kiddie pool - all are welcome.
