Top 10 Signs Your Kids Are On Summer Break
Have you developed a twitch that you can’t explain? Has the noise level in your home risen to uncountable decibels? Is every towel you own covered in mud?
I think I know what you’re suffering from. You might just have a case of Kids-On-Summer-Break.
Here’s some signs to check for.
Top 10 Signs Your Kids Are On Summer Break.
#10. You’ve put green and red popsicles on the food pyramid as vegetables.
#8. You aren’t sure when the last time your child took a real bath with soap and everything was, and you wonder if the time they dumped bubbles into the lake while they were swimming counts.
#7. You think ice cream for dinner is a nice change from the watermelon your kids ate exclusively for the previous 2 days.
#6. You wonder how many days in a row your child can wear a swimsuit before you legally have to call in the HazMat Team.
#5. The hose in your yard has been running non-stop for more days than you can count.
#4. You’ve hollered “When I was a kid, we played outside!” more than 15 times. In one day.
#3. You spent $35 on lemonade making supplies, which your children made into a thick, yellow liquid, and sold to passersby for a total of $3.75, just so you wouldn’t have to answer the “Can we watch TV now?” question again for a few hours.
#2. You dog’s coat looks extra shiny because someone covered him with sunscreen. Twice.
#1. No one will go to bed. Ever.
Relax. After all, things could be worse.
It could be time for Back to School.
Laugh Out Loud!
