With only a few weeks left of school free summer, I’ve been thinking about how I want to spend these last glorious no-lunch packing, no homework monitoring, no school sports/activities shuttling days. As much as the kids and I have been spending a lot of time together and occasionally grating on each other’s last nerve — more specifically, they’re grating on mine! — I am going to miss this low-key time together. I think about how many more summers I’ll have left before my 8 yo little guy doesn’t want to hold my hand anymore, or if I’m under-appreciating those small moments when my daughter finally declares domination over the playground monkey bars. To be honest, all of this sappy stuff might be the result of monthly hormones. Just in case it’s not, the next 2 1/2 weeks I’ve decided to attack our summer fun bucket list with a vengeance. Which means I actually need to create one… So moms, local NE Ohio/Cleveland residents and all-around creative people — please help a sista’ out!
What’s on YOUR summer bucket list?
