Ah, Spring! Is there nothing more delightful? The snows of winter have melted, the tulips have emerged, and the world seems fresh and new.
But, there are a select few that may not be cheering the beauty of the season. Here’s how to tell if you are one of them.
- When you get into bed, your heels scratch the sheets and you briefly wonder if your child has ripped the velcro straps on their shoes.
- You go to shave your legs and realize the hair you remove would make a very healthy donation to locks of love.
- Opening the windows in your home is problematic because then all of your neighbors would hear you yelling at your kids.
- Hoarders called. It wants to help you take care of your spring cleaning.
- You’d rather sweat than give up your supply of cashmere sweaters and hot cocoa.
- Is that lice? A reappearance of snow? Nope. It’s the trail of ashy skin flakes you leave behind you when you walk.
- Damn, baby. Are those your hooves? I think your sandals just ran away in terror. Get yourself a mani-pedi stat.
- The thought of researching and selecting summer camps for your kids makes you break out in hives.
- Yoga? Piyo? Oh, hells no. You’d rather let that layer of warming winter fat linger around your midsection.
- When you go to pull the folding camp chairs out of storage, you cry a little because you know it means it’s time for another season of sitting next to bug-infested soccer fields.
Take heart, Spring-avoidant mother. The season will soon be done, and you can spend the summer stressing about the high cost of the school supplies coming up in the fall.
