O Happy Day

No more listening to arguments, yelling, or bickering.  No more fights over the TV.  No more asking for ice cream, candy or cookies at nine in the morning.  No more whining when the answer is no.  No more “You are the WORST MOTHER EVERRRRR!” No more food wrappers all over, at any given moment.  No more grass, dirt and leaves tracked into a freshly vacuumed house.  No more having to carry iPods, iPads, laptop, DS’s or any other electronics into bedrooms.  No more refereeing squabbles.  No more questions about having friends over, sleeping over, swimming, going to the store, buying this or that, or if we really have to clean today.  No more finding strange items in the grocery cart.  No more repeat viewings of Spongebob Squarepants, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, Victorious, Ant Farm, or Phineas and Ferb.


School started today.

And just like that, the world is exactly as it should be.



  1. Thanks for the comment on our site! I'm happy your kids are back at school now - my only complaint is that when school's back in, my daily work commute is worse with all the buses. But a small price to pay for a well-deserved Sponge Bob break! What are you going to do with all your new-found quiet time?

  2. Thank you and you're welcome! I agree, the bus situation is tiresome, but the peace is worth it. I plan to sit in silence every day. For a few weeks, anyway.

  3. YES. I am exhaling all over the place. And loving it maybe a little too much.
