I miss the school holidays...for the following reasons...
*sleeping in late (definition of late would be about 8am, seeing as though on a school day the alarm goes off at 6!)
*lying in bed in the early morning before the kiddies have woken up-enjoying looking outside at the trees and hearing the birds
*drinking that first cup of coffee in bed while reading a magazine/book(ultimate bliss and something I NEVER get time to do besides school hols!)
*while loving my quiet time I equally love it when the kids burst into the room in the mornings and climb under the covers for a snuggle! The fact my 10 year old boy still loves this makes my heart warm, because I know one day that time will be gone...
*Treasuring the sound of their early morning, quiet chattering and playing, the giggling, the sound of pretend play...
*seeing the toys scattered around the house, letting them have their fun and letting my routine become a lot more relaxed!
*Loving the fact I don't have to go racing off to get them to school or fetch them or have a time-constraint.
*Lot's of movie-watching and pop-corn eating
*teaching the kids how to bake. (my son made these crunchies from start to finish all on his own and they were delicious!)
*finding time to enjoy sunsets
*lot's of games like Uno, snakes and ladders and cards.
sigh....wishing for the next school holidays already!xx
