I hate summer vacation

I need routine. I need it so I can just keep up with all the things I have to do. It takes me a long time just to develop a routine that works and even longer for me to really get "in" to it.

Summer vacation throws it all out of whack. I now have five children and a husband mucking up my plans every day. Not only are they disrupting my routine, they are creating larger and more frequent messes and chaos. And they fight. And they won't help like they need to.

Needless to say, I'm not coping well. My house is falling apart. I can't seem to keep it clean and organized. As a result, mama ain't happy. mama is having trouble focusing. mama is going to blow a gasket.'s 1030 a.m. and *daddy* is sleeping still because he was up past 2 a.m. playing computer games.

NOT. A. Happy. Camper.

  1. Just found your blog via Sew,Mama,Sew blog. I am the mother of 3 boys with one recently diagnosed (past year) as ADHD and am starting to have the "ADD/ADHD Epiphany". I think I now know where my son got his ADD/ADHD...ME! Your posts are great, right on the mark and give me the hope that I am not alone in my struggle to get simple household tasks done on a daily basis :)

    Summer Vacation is coming and I am afraid, very afraid! This will be my first summer as a full time SAHM with 3 very active boys and a raging case of Executive Function Deficit.

    Keep on posting!


Thanks and have a great day!
