Confession time: At this moment, I don't exactly know where my 4-year-old is. I'm pretty sure she's in the house. She probably has the iPad with her. There is a good chance she snuck a package of fruit snacks out of the pantry. I should probably go check on her but it is August and school is still weeks away and I am OVER IT. 


Don't get me wrong -- summer break can be great. We've had lots of fun at the swimming pool and eating ice cream cones in the backyard. The kids have enjoyed those slower days when they don't have to get out of their jammies until noon. All good things.

But there has also been bickering and unending demands for snacks and, the further we get away from our school year routines, a total slacking of our normal screen time rules. 

We're still three weeks away from the start of school and I know I'm not the only mom who is SO OVER summer. Read on for some real talk about what the end of summer really looks like for those of us counting down to September.
