Tomorrow, we officially welcome Fall with the first day of Autumn…Where the heck did the summer go?! My Lil Man has been back to school for a few weeks now and hockey (I’m a hockey Mom!) has started.
Being on maternity leave, I chose not to register Lil Man in any summer camps for two reasons: one, I am home on maternity leave; and two, it’s very expensive! And despite the lack organized activities, the boys and I had one of the BEST summers ever!
I absolutely loved being home with my boys, day in and day out. First and foremost though, I have to admit, it was A LOT of work! Feeding and entertaining a 5 year old and a baby is no small task, but worth every momentary irritation and effort. Whether we were on playground dates, library outings, watching Lil Man at his swimming lessons, or one of our bigger, day trip adventures to Legoland, African Lion Safari or our annual visit to the CNE, I loved EVERY minute of our summer together.
Spending every day of the summer with my Boys made me realize that I want to spend every summer hanging out with them (for as long as they want me to, which, fingers crossed, I hope they always do).
To Summer…So long to staying up long past bedtime and sleeping in until late morning…
…Farewell to lazy summer days spent outside playing in the sunshine or snuggling together, napping or watching TV…
And hello to new routines, cooler temperatures, sweater weather, and the new Fall TV lineup…Fall – we’re almost ready for you…Almost.
