Dadding Every Day School Holidays Pain - the 5 Stages
I hate school holidays. They absolutely kill me. They deprive me of my routine and my sanity and I really don’t like it.
During term time, between the hours of 8:30am-3pm, five year old Focker #1 becomes someone else’s problem. I can offload him at school 5 days a week, knowing full well that he is going to be cared for, educated and exercised before being returned to me in a disheveled but happy state at 3pm.

Rock-a-bye Your Balls by Guest SAHD Blogger @daddingeverday
