Tis the Season to Go Completely Insane.

I do believe that once you have 2 kids in school, 
April & May become more chaotic than the holiday season. 
Crazy, isn’t it? 
I mean, instead of pulling your hair out planning & attending countless holiday parties, shopping & wrapping gifts, etc. You get to lose your mind attending recitals, sports games/banquets, field-trips & other random school functions… and subsequently freak out about it all coming to an abrupt halt just in time for summer vacation, when you get to entertain your children 24/7 for way too many weeks. 
Someone pass me a beer, please? 
This past weekend, just for example… the hubs & I played our first gig in nearly a decade for a cancer benefit in the morning. More on that later this week. 
After lunch at Founders (of course!) my oldest had a mid-afternoon birthday party to attend, and I was attending my annual opera night with a few beloved family members. 
We were really looking forward to doing nothing after going non-stop all day Saturday, and in the weeks before, just prepping for our gig, but we realized that the GR Museum’s last day of the Mars exhibit was yesterday, so we had to take our budding astronauts! And yes, the hubs & I were very close to passing out cold in the planetarium. Those reclined seats + darkness x massive exhaustion? Uh, yeah. 
Don’t get me wrong, I love that there’s never a shortage of things to do in our life. 
I’d rather be busy than bored. I’m never bored. 
So we are doing our best to make the most of this last month of school… 
But seriously…
…couldn’t we spread a little of this chaos out throughout the year? 
January – March would work well for a mid-year school talent show, field trips to some indoor events… or what about a skiing or sledding field-trip? 
Instead of hibernating indoors, why don’t more schools make the most of this climate we live in instead of waiting until the weather is just warm enough to cram 5 kajillion events in? 
Excuse me while I attempt to breathe & wrap my brain around it all… oh screw it, pass me a shot! 
How do you manage this crazy time of year?

    Yikes…something I don’t look forward to! At least mine is only 3 months old and has no activities or responsibilities 🙂 I’ll enjoy it while I can!

      Ahhh, the good ole days. Yes, enjoy them!! You may be sleep-deprived, but you will look back on these days with fondness.

    Amen Sister! Last night I stole my kids blanky and sucked my thumb till I fell asleep. I could use a good field trip to the planetarium right now. I in fact did fall dead asleep in their on a field trip. Mortifying my poor son.
    hang in there sister frand!

      Thanks, Sheila. If the show at the planetarium were even 5 minutes longer, I’m sure the sound of the hubs’ snoring would’ve definitely mortified our children.
