Fed up..Updated..

Hello all,how are you?
I am a little fed up and slightly annoyed as well..this has been bubbling for a while now..well actually years,so here it goes.
I get so sick and tired of reading on certain "mummy" websites of  mums moaning about half terms and school holidays..why?
Some have said they have no idea what to do with them and others have come right out and said they dread it.Why?
It really pushes my buttons..i seriously cannot be the only one who loved school holidays and still do.
We all had a great time and relaxed and did what we wanted to do..going out,the park or just lounging in the garden..we still do.
I just don't understand why they moan..you had the children and had them at home before they went to school so whats the problem now.
I used to count down the days til we had holidays..and i actually dreaded them going back to school,i loved having all my children at home..we spent ages talking and playing outside..going on long walks with the dog. for me it was the best times and i hope it was for my children too.
I was hopping with absolute joy when they broke up from school.i couldn't wait to get them home and start to have fun..propbably sounds a little strange but i really missed them all when they went to school and as each one went to their first day at school i would literally sob my heart out til they came home.Only to find out they had a great time and loved it..better than having them cry.
I know lots of mums who feel the same way as i do but then i see even more mums moaning..come on stop it...enjoy what you have and have fun..make memories that they and you treasure.

So how about you ladies/gents..do you love the holidays or dread them?
And another thing that pushes my buttons is how some parents treat and speak to their children but that's a whole new rant.

Well ladies/gents it seems i am not the only one who loves having my children at home.
I totally understand the mums who have to work that don't get the time with their children..no one was calling them for it.I do think the price for childcare here and in the States is extortionate and unfair..help should really be available but sadly it isn't.
My daughter works full time so does her husband and we do help out by having the girls for days when she can't arrange childcare.

I find it sad that in one comment the lady said that children were encouraged to write about their holidays and only came up with laptops/computers/tablets..so sad that they were left to their own devices.

And also it depends upon your children as well..some are easy going and some definitely aren't..its finding that balance that works for all of you that is hard..what you want is something totally different to what they want or expect..its all swings and roundabouts and folks do what works for them and what makes them and their family happy.

It is awful as your little brood slowly disappear to school one by one..so year after year your house becomes quieter and quieter. You can either enjoy the silence or dread it..or just get on with it and look forward to when they come home and have holidays.

O and to the commenter who said i live in cuckoo land and not the real world..screw you..next time leave your name and i will publish your comments.But for now my anonymous friend Adios ,goodbye,au revoir.
