No more helping with homework. (Seriously, I already passed algebra. Your turn, dudes.)
Laundry be damned. Kids can wear the same T-shirt and shorts for a week straight with no hygienic concern from the school.
No need to devise elaborate indoor activities. Grab some sticks off the lawn and it's yard-battle time!
No more packing lunches every day! Kids can make their own damn meals out of WHATEVER, I DON'T CARE!
After the kids go to bed, you still have an hour of daylight to work on your tan.
Grilling season means the husband might actually cook a meal. Slightly blackened hot dogs for all!
No one thinks it's strange when you sit on your porch at 4 o'clock with a pitcher of margaritas. Alone. Cheers!
Road trip + wine in a sippy cup + ear plugs = Uninterrupted mommy time
Kids do the yard work. You watch "What Not to Wear" reruns.
