The BEST and WORST things about school holidays…

School holidays aren’t all peachy, and they aren’t all bad either. The photos from school holidays remind you of the wonderful times that were had and the smiles that were shared. That’s not all the holidays are made of though. Let’s evaluate!


      Not having to make lunches every morning
      Pyjama days
      Slow(er) mornings
      Having time to do fun things
      Trying new playgrounds
      Having play dates
      Movie sessions
      Not having to nag 24/7
      Having time to go on a holiday
      Time for kiddy cuddles
      Making forever memories



      Your kids are mortal enemies around 50 times in a single day
      Holiday activities can add up quickly and get really expensive
      If you don’t go out, you all get cabin fever
      Bored kids = hungry kids, so the ‘I’m hungry’ is endless
      Your house is pretty much trashed for the entire holidays
      You need to try and find space for the 50 new toys they got for Christmas
      Some of those new toys take batteries, and they make noise
      If you do get to go away on a holiday, guaranteed you’ll feel like you need a holiday after you come home from your holiday
      If you work during the holidays you need to deal with vacation care costs, unless you work from home and in which case you need to do it with the constant noise and interruptions from your children


Is it really all that bad?

No. I still love school holidays. I love getting the chance to chill and play with my mini-me’s. It’s not always easy and some days I’m counting down the seconds until school starts again but for the most part the benefit outweighs the burden. How do you feel about the holidays?
