my kind of tiger mom!


Towards the end of the summer I was counting the days when school was going to start again, it didn't help that it was supposed to start one week and then we had that darn hurricane which pushed the start date back a week... so there we were in limbo for an additional week, lot's of plans for working and there we were figuring out MORE activities for the kids... don't get me wrong I LoVE to hang out with my kids, and since both my husband and myself work from home we hang out with them a LOT, so after a summer of pandering to all the crazy whims that come up, I am completely ready to get back down to a schedule and get my butt back to work!

My friend sent me a link to this article in the Wall Street Journal and I laughed until I cried, I sent it to some other friends and they laughed until they cried too... so I wanted to let you in on this delightfully articulated article that will make you laugh until you cry, I hope!

Interesting! I am someone who loves the holidays becuase there is no time pressures. You can do what you want, when you want and don't have to leave halfway through to go and collect a child...and you don't have to be up and ready and breakfasted and clothed and out in such a rush. I like the holidays with the kids, sure i'd like some holidays without them too but the freedom of no school on the schedule is enlightening...but i guess that's a lazy parent in a whole different meaning! One who doesn't like getting up so ear;y!
