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.

Besides keeping my unpainted toes covered all fall and winter, I’m doing okay for the most part. I started putting Vaseline on my heals EVERY night (and socks!) and it’s helped A LOT keeping the roughness away. And I must be a glutton for punishment because I shave my legs every day. What is WRONG with me?? But summertime for sure is my favorite season just because it’s so less stressful (no school, school activities) and I just try not to think of the fast approaching new school year. Eek! 🙂
I am totally avoiding the summer camp conversations. Denial. Denial. Denial. I have had a cast on one foot for the last 2 months so imagine my ‘scaping’. Ugh
For me it’s the allergies!
