Top Ten Signs Your Kids Are On Summer Break

Top Ten Signs Your Kids Are On Summer Break

by Gina Valley

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.

Here’s The Top Ten Signs Your Kids Are On Summer Break.

#10.  You’ve put green and red popsicles on the food pyramid as vegetables.

#9.  You have no idea what day of the week it is (even more than usual!).

#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.

Laugh Out Loud!


What’s your favorite summer memory? What do your kids like to do on a lazy summer day? Shoot me a comment. I’m looking forward to hearing all about it.

    #9 SO TRUE. Is it Monday? I think so. The upside is that mine sleep late. Later than any random Saturday throughout the year so that’s kinda nice.

    I remember those days, the wonderful summers of youth.
