I have 2 very tired and slightly overwhelmed (a preschooler and preppy) who are feeling the long school term. They are so ready for the school holidays, just for a break and to catch up on some much needed sleep!

Miss 4.5yr old is coming home from kinder very cranky and more often falling asleep in the car before making the end of the block. The poor dear is exhausted by the weekend and I’ve taken to sending her to bed earlier and letting her sleep in a little later in the mornings.

Master 6.5yr old is becoming more defiant and pushing his boundaries recently. I’ve taken a step back from punishing these behaviours, as I understand he too, is just so exhausted and SO ready for a short break from school.

Poor kids. I remember being this age once upon a time ago :) I’m hoping the holidays will give them a chance to regenerate their energy levels to tackle the next 10 week term!!

  • the story is exellent


  • After a 6 week break we’re ready for the new term.


  • With your two little ones, I’m thinking that Mummy may well need a holiday for herself after the kids go back to school after their holidays. I always remember that school term always lasted “years”, while holidays went way too quickly.
