REJOICE!!! We survived a 2.5 week closure between camp and school as two working parents! And a 2 week closure in May before camp. We made it! And we still have our jobs! So grateful for employers that understand the life of working parents, extremely lucky for my parents who watched our youngest the whole time, and to one week of camp here and another week of camp there for my 3 year old son. Phew! We love, love, love our preschool and they gotta do what they gotta do to clean, train, and give our beloved teachers time off…but boy are we happy that our boys are at school today and we can all get back into our normal routines and work days.
On another note, this morning for drop off instead of going to the left side of the campus to drop both kids off, we went right first to drop my oldest off. He’s on the “big kid” side of school now where the 3 and 4 year olds are. THE BIG KID SIDE. So basically next year he’ll graduate from college and go off into the world and leave me. Do I smile or cry? I think both.
