Happy Mothers day “Mom”.
With your son/daughter venturing into the world of summer camp, home is going to be a little different, a bit quieter and might feel a tad strange.
And despite missing your child, with them gone for the summer there’s a whole lot more time for you, a whole lot less laundry and let’s be honest, it’s great.
Here’s our top 8 reasons why being a parent when your son/daughter is working at a summer camp is pretty brilliant.
You can relax
And breathe, with all this free time you’ve got more time to do the things you love. Bubble bath, check. A glass of merlot, check. Minstrels open, check.
Free reign on the remote
Want to binge your favourite series, go ahead. Because you can.
The house is clean (… ish)
The odd appearance of the mystery smelly sock down the back of the sofa… no longer a mystery. We know whose it was, this summer it will be a thing of the past.
The bank of mum and dad is closed this summer. Wonderful.
Ultimate bragging rights
“Oh what’s your child doing this summer? Oh don’t know if you knew but, mines teaching basketball in New York”
A nice card to play at book club.
With no-one raiding fridge, you’ll know who’s been scoffing the snacks. I think we all knew anyway. But your shop will definitely go further, an unopened box of after eights - now that’s a first!
It’s oh so quiet.
The pride you feel
It’s wonderful to know that your baby’s having an amazing summer, the pictures, the experiences you hear about. It so good and refreshing to know they are out seeing the world, exploring America and having a blast.
You couldn’t be prouder… but next time you’re going too.
