I am in the midst of my summer break from law school!

Funny how when I tell people that, they think it means I’m not going to school or working or anything. Ha! “Off for the summer” for this night student means I’m out of classes and experiencing a “normal” life when I go home at the end of the day and have dinner with my family. It is nice to be really, truly involved with my family again…although…damn, this parenting thing takes a lot of energy. I am never surprised when my partner tells me she is tired. Kids are exhausting! I always tell her that I did not sign up to stay home with the kids; I know I could not do it. I would have to be locked up…it would either drive me bonkers (that is a technical term, I believe) or drive me to criminal acts. That would be bad for an attorny-in-training. I ADORE my children, but I really am much better as a weekend warrior parent 🙂

We had a great time at the Children’s Museum on Friday. I am just a big kid at heart and had the best time in this huge pit of ground up rubber tires meant to be used like a sandbox. We played with buckets, shovels, trucks, and best of all, a conveyor belt that you could put soft rocks and the ground rubber on and then have them dump into a truck, or, as my son discovered, my head. It was pretty funny. Baby Girl and I sat at the end of the conveyor belt and let him shower us with the colorful, soft pellets, and she laughed with delight. Too cute!
