Every year at this time I have the same thoughts.
What did I do this summer?
Did I waste it?
Did I savor each & every moment?
Did I give my kids lots of attention?
Did we have fun as a family?
I think we had fun. Granted we didn't take a big vacation, but we did go on several day trips. We saw lots of movies. We ate & ate and then ate some more. We swam in the pool almost every day. The kids went to baseball/softball/golf camps which they enjoyed. We went to an amusement/water park. We had a big family cookout for the 4th of July. We went to the NY State Fair (today). We will be going to Yankee Stadium on Labor Day.
Did I laugh & giggle & just goof around with them?
Did I let this precious time, while they are still fairly young, slip away?
Did I spend too much time on the computer?
Was I the best & most attentive mother that I could be?
The haunting thoughts of summer go on and on...
