School’s back! And yes, I think I’m more excited than my kids are.
I love the school term. I love the 6 hours of peace and quiet that my kids being at school and kindy bring me. I love the alone time that I can with just Bella. I love the fact that I can concentrate on my blog and vlog work without having to moderate yet another argument between siblings. I love the fact that I don’t have to answer yet another “I’m bored” and that instead I got excited stories about catch ups with friends and fun at school. I love the fact that my kids were almost as excited as I was to go to school and see their friends and meet their new teachers.
Don’t get me wrong. I love my kids to the moon and back. They are my heart and soul. But having all four of them at home over 6 weeks of holidays was slowly driving me insane. The sun is too hot to be out in the middle of the day so spending the day at the park isn’t much of an option. Especially since our local one is made of metal.
We are also only a one income family. I don’t make enough from my blog or vlog to live on. It is literally just pocket money that I can buy the odd item for when it’s not being put back into the costs of running my blog. So we live on the income that Eugene makes to pay the bills and feed our family. It doesn’t leave much left over for expensive activities. So, the kids don’t get a huge lot of fun things to do outside of the home during the holidays and there is only so many times one can play with their toys or watch tv or jump on their tramp.
So yes, we are all glad to for school to start!
