    Trying to remember where you’ve lost your own things (car keys, sweaters, sunglasses) because you’ve already lost your mind.

    Saying, no, you can’t have your third ice cream or popsicle of the day.

    Wishing that more of the kids on the block would be out playing this year so my son would get off the video games–strangely, they all seem to be hibernating this summer.

    Agonizing over what to make for dinner because I really don’t feel like cooking over a hot stove or grill and the natives get upset with just cereal.

    hmmm, way to much doing the retrieving!! Let them suffer w/o it for the night and learn the lesson!? Love the hiding the Klondike bars! I have to remind my kids that the SkinnyCows are for ME! But it is hard to explain it to them w/o creating some kind of obsession with calories/fat/diet. I try not to talk about dieting around my kids so when I try and explain that those treats are just for me I think I create more wonder than necessary!!

    This should be a Venn diagram. “Counting down til school starts” encompasses the entire chart.

    How about picking up wet swimsuits, towels, swim toys, shoes, swim paraphnelia from floor and saying “Is this where all of this belongs? to know one in particular.

    Going through daily heart palpitations trying to find single dollar bills for the camp’s Snack Shack, then dreading hearing what they used it for (they still make Fun Dip, for heaven’s sake!)

    Love it! But you forgot “Applying sunblock/bug spray/aloe/anti-itch goo” There’s a fair bit of that around our house…
