She brought a friend home from school so they can play before everyone's lives get insane for the summer. And yes, those are lollipops sticking out of their mouths so precariously. So far the afternoon has brought hearing Taylor Swift and Carly Rae Jepsen songs over, and over, and over again while girly laughter escapes from the bedroom door.
I'm so ready for summer to begin, and yet so not ready at the same time. Fortunately, we've got some fun things to look forward to, including summer 5th grade prep homework! Mwahahaha. As much as I love getting a break from homework battles, I am one of those mean moms who makes the kids do homework in the summer so they can return to school in the fall as moderately intelligent human beings instead of having forgotten everything they slaved over for months.
