Now, my son is counting the hours until summer vacation.¬† Probably because he heads to Florida on Sunday for a week at my parents house.
At my folks, Sam gets to eat what he wants, watch as much TV as he wants and stay up as late as he wants.¬† And, of course...They.¬† Have.¬† A.¬† Pool.¬† When he comes home, he smells like chlorine for days (maybe weeks)!
Now I know from my mom that he does eat more than junk food when he's there (cheetos and chocolate for breakfast is apparently only tasty for a day or two)¬†and that he¬†doesn't¬†actually make it much past 10pm.¬† As for the TV, well, it's always on but he's not at the "couch potato kid" stage yet.¬† The idea of it is way cooler than the reality of just sitting around.
But I am so grateful my parents are able to indulge him this way--he's so excited!
And my husband and I are looking forward to dining out whenever and wherever we want for the week too.
