Help, Summer Vacation Has Started at the Zoo

I haven't decided if I am going to enjoy having the kids home for summer this year or not.  But, for this mom with a daily to do list a mile long, this summer is not going to be pleasant. This is what I learned so far from having my kids home for a half a day:

  • They are all strong willed and stubborn just like their mom.
  • Screaming at each other is a favorite past time when kids 2, 3 and 4 don't do what kid 1 wants.
  • Parrot is the only kid motivated to do the new behavior chart for summer.
  • Locking my bedroom door in order to get some work done only attracts door knocking and yelling for Mom every 10 minutes.
  • Setting up the kiddie pool outside for the kids just makes the fore casted 80 degree, sunny weather to change to 70 degrees and wind. 
  • Sleeping in isn't an option for Mom during the summer months, because it just makes Parrot mad. He is very vocal when he is mad.
  • No matter how many times Mom explains how to get along the kids will not know the meaning of those two words.

This is going to be a long, long summer.  I have over 300 comments to return and respond back, 60+ PR requests to reply to, 40+ other  emails to read and respond to, dirty dishes in the sink, blog posts to write on both blogs and my social network, appointments to go to after dinner and a house full of hyper, screaming kids who demand my attention every ten minutes. Yes, this is going to be a long, long, LONG summer.
