My Family Takes The Summer Off

From Twin Cities Moms Blog
“I want summer to be different. I want summer to be less. I want my kids to have the gift of days spent lounging in swimsuits. I want their biggest stressors to be running out of freezie pops and wondering when I’ll cut up the watermelon. I want their minds to wander and unlimited opportunity for unstructured time with friends.”


Poop in the Pool and Other Reasons I Hate Summer

From Alamo City Moms Blog
“To countless moms all over the world, you are the embodiment of a long-awaited exhale. You herald the arrival of blissfully unscheduled days, afternoons spent lazing by the pool, and evenings that seem to stretch until dawn.
