Aah, another summer has finally come, and once again I face the same challenge—my children. Ouch, that sounds awful calling them a challenge, but let’s face it, kids aren’t exactly conducive in regards to quiet time, and mine are way, way passed the age of napping. Yet, I can’t write in chaos. Believe me, I’ve tried, it doesn’t work. My brain must have SILENCE! Then I feel bad telling my kids to shush fifty times for the few hours I set aside to write it each day.
One day I’m sure my children will be on an Oprah-like talk show telling the world how their mother neglected them. Ugh. It’s moments like these I think year-round schools may not be such a bad idea.
