School bells are ringing and many mothers are doing the back-to-class dance! While some moms love the lazy days of Summer, others long for homeroom and after school activities. Sleeping in and family vacations may sound heavenly, but it can be challenging to entertain children every day for a three-month stretch. However, mamas who look forward to the carpool line may find the school days to be more demanding than the dog days.
Mothers have to roust the troops in the wee morning hours, dress and feed everyone, pack a lunch and then jump in the car for a race to beat the tardy bell. Though she may have some peace and quiet around the house for a few hours, the school mom doesn't get the rest that many suspect.
Do you prefer the summertime or school year most?
