School Holidays here – the first week is not over yet and already I am searching for the appropriate quote! Here is the one that suits my day!

If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers. ~Edgar W. Howe

  1. Oh, I love it. Back in the day when I was a teacher it used to really annoy me that parents complained about spending the holidays with their own offspring. Now that I am a parent myself I know why. I hope your days improve. xxx Mira

  2. I lOVE that quote..ha! Is that not terribly, undeniably true? Hang in there Mrs. A, you are never alone. I have just one lame bit of encouragement. I always dreamed of the day when the last one left home & I had my freedom. I’ve been dreaming off & on for 30 years next week. On the 24th of this month that dream is realized when #4 gets on the plane to leave for University. Now I wish kids were driving me nuts again. Can’t believe this day has arrived. Just want to cry / :

  3. Ahhh the loooong summer holidays – do’t you just love em!! Great quote. We’ve yet to being our over here – 2 weeks to go. I have 4 weeks of the 6 filled and hope the sun keeps shining so we can be out and about for the other 2. Enjoy !!!

  4. That quote is too funny, Leanne! I think there are a lot of us out there feeling the same way as you, these holidays are always the hardest for us as it is sooooo cold and miserable weather wise here and I have 2 sick kiddies, so a bit difficult to send them outside. Enjoy your weekend 🙂

  5. As a Primary School Teacher….I had to giggle whilst reading this 🙂 Now people understand why teachers get so many holidays…..coz we’re stuck with the kids {25 of them} all day 5 days a week….we’d be filling the asylums if we had no holidays LOL!!! But I love my job….but are very thankful for the holidays 🙂 I guess being a Mummy though….I’m not really on holidays….my 2yr old is keeping more than busy haaa! xo.

  6. 🙂 I empathise.. The combination schoolies and rain is never great..

    Though I miss my kids like crazy when they are at school and daycare.. the irony of it all..

    Have a great week!
