Summertime Sadness


Anyone else feeling this overwhelming sadness from the kids going back to school and Summer being nearly over?! I know we still have another month until Fall starts and today it was 105 degrees outside {yes, friggin' miserable here in sunny SoCal} but having to get back on a school routine and not getting to hang with all my littles everyday is a bit of a drag.

I'm really looking forward to baseball and volleyball starting and attending all the school events in the coming weeks. However, today was ridiculously the busiest day since the kids went back. I had back to school night and a baseball team meeting, as well as all the drop offs and pick ups since Heidi is all day and Lukas is in Kinder, starting at different times. I actually left my kids with a friend's sitter {for the first time ever} just so I could attend back to school night without having to chase after Jake. We got home only a half hour before bedtime and I feel like I really missed my kids today, even though I was with them {just not with them} for parts of it. Driving in the car was the only time I really could have our "so, how was school talks."


I'm a scheduler and planner to a T and having all these new activities to add to my calendar is fun and oh so stressful at the same time. I know this is what being a parent is about and time management is super important, but I keep getting these moments of sadness from the changes in our life and I'm pretty sure it's my own personal Summertime blues {either that or my hormones are all messed up lol}. Oh, and to make matters worse, Jake isn't nursing as much and I think I may need to stop breastfeeding for good... like forever and ever. Sigh.

Anywho, I hope I'm not the only one who is missing her babies while they go off and get smart or is having a hard time adjusting to the new schedules or routines in life. I chalk it up to a serious case of Summertime sadness and hopefully once the weather cools and I can actually get the kids in the car without fear of heatstroke, all will be better and blissful.

How are you feeling about Summer fun coming to an end and the Fall routines taking shape??

  1. I'm so torn about it! I wish summer would hold on for just a week or so more, but then on the other side I can't wait to get my Ugg boots out and smell the snow before it even falls :)

  3. I have mixed feelings, for sure. I've always loved Fall and heading back to school (something my oldest daughter and I seem to have in common), but we haven't been camping this summer (we canceled three different weekends because of illness), so it feels like summer can't end yet!

  4. Aw - that's sweet - my girls are grown but I remember the excitement of the first day of school and my oldest did Pop Warner Cheerleading for years - so that was lots of fun... I myself feel although it was hot, hot, hot this summer (I live in Florida) - I didn't have a chance to get much "pool" time and down time to really enjoy this summer... oh well..... there is always next year!

  6. Hey girl. You are not any different than any other mom watching their kiddies leave for school. I'm not a momma yet so I don't quite relate but I know I feel the same. Keep your head up!

  7. I go through a duality of feelings with the end of summer. I miss the freedom to do as we want and pick up and go but I crave the routine. That part usually doesn't hit me until the very last week though. And I miss the summer heat (it's not that hot where I live:P)

  8. I can't relate on this because I hate Indian summers but I can understand that feeling. I get Wintertime sadness!

  9. I'm looking forward to Fall. I'm going to miss my oldest, which I think I'm still in denial about him actually going to kindergarten.

  10. I took classes all summer and had a three week break before classes began up again this week. I'm looking forward to the cooler weather that fall will bring!!

  11. Can you believe how hot it's been in So Cal?! My son wished for snow today! Ha Ha!
    My kids haven't started yet - they go back after Labor Day. One daughter is going to Kinder, the other to preschool and my son to third grade!! Crazy to think of not having anyone home with me in the mornings. I am going to miss them so much. It's hard to think about Fall, since we are beginning our hottest months!
