Nevertheless, we invent ways of refueling ourselves so we can keep on giving. Employing the dreaded TV babysitter occasionally (With a little pre-approved, praise worthy video of course), visiting the all exclusive private pool (otherwise known as the bathtub) with headphones and a good book, or simply sneaking away before the roosters to be with the Father as Jesus would do.
We know everyone is happier, things go smoother and life is just better when mommy is happy, prepared and energetic. We need time to refuel and organize and plan ahead.
So, go ahead and sign your kids up for VBS this summer - or for several! I give you permission. As homeschool moms, they are with us 24/7 the rest of the year and we need a teacher work day or two as well. They love it! Enjoy your summer! :)
