I have been back at work now for a few weeks and, like a lot of women before me have said, it really isn’t as bad as you think it will be. In fact it’s pretty great. But I do have it easy. Or maybe my husband and I have stumbled on a decent version of the “shared parenting style.” Let me explain:

Last week, I was on vacation with my family at a resort in Northern Ontario. A little before 7pm, I was starting to think about what to have for dinner, while my kids, still in their swimsuits, were playing barefoot soccer on the grass. A young man and woman, along with their one year old son, emerged from the cabin next door. The little guy was in his jammies, and the parents were allowing him a few more minutes outside before heading back indoors for bedtime. I looked at my watch and realized how late it had become, and we were not even close to bedtime!
September is upon us and with that comes the (dreaded) school lunch! Many moms look forward to the kids going back to school and the routine it brings to our family lives, but a lot of moms also loathe making daily lunches.
Have you been bitten by the Back to School bug yet? Are you feeling panicked by the barrage of marketing about just how “ready” your kids need to be, this month? Put your wallet away, sit back down, take a deep breath and relax. Make this August the time you take your own advice to “play outside” instead.
