Close your eyes and imagine with me for just a minute.
Silence fills your house…wait-was that one of the kids fighting you just heard? No, that sound came from outside.
The sink is full of…nothing. The dishes are done. The floor is swept and the counters are wiped.
Nobody needs you. No one is fighting. No snacks need to be made.
It’s back to school and the kids are gone for their first day. Does the change hit you pretty hard like it does me?! (Ahhhhh the peace!) I LOVE having our kids home for summer. I also LOVE it when they go back to school.
Now, I know some of you still have little ones at home even when your older ones go back, but even that change of pace can be nice and deserves to be celebrated…with cupcakes!
