Since I was “home” this summer, in that I am starting up my new company from my house, I planned out Declan’s summer differently than in years past. I had more freedom with the schedule – where, in the past, I needed care every day of the week, from morning till night – now I just needed some off time to get work done… but I also could take advantage of this special time with my son.
Who is SO FREAKING COOL right now.
We had a great summer.
I mixed it up. Some weeks he was at athletic camp. Some weeks he was at art camp. This last week, he was with the Denver Zoo, which he has declared his favorite, while he learned to save the planet. Did you know solar is so expensive because the atoms have to shake the something somethings around them to produce energy? Yeah, I don’t know what he is talking about either.
In between those other weeks, he was home with me. We went to the pool, the park, the museums. We had a few vacations. We had lots and lots of laughs.
We have 3 more days together next week before school starts.
I now finally understand the relief, and grief, that stay at home moms experience during back to school time.
