The Countdown To My Sanity

25 weeks. 175 days…..until….

I can go grocery shopping (or any kind of shopping) alone!

I can vacuum without a battle of wills.

I can mop without strategic maneuvers.

I can do laundry without having to hear blood-curdling screams.

I can have time for myself (what is that?). 

25 weeks. 175 days….until….

He has more educational playtime.

He has more social engagement and interaction.

He is submerged more into the German language and culture.

He has more intellectual stimulation and less time in the house. 

He walks to and from school with Mama with picnic lunches and playground time on nice days.

25 weeks. 175 days….until….

We have a two year old and kindergarten begins! But who’s counting?

    Hahaha. Love it. I cannot even imagine how difficult it must be to be an immigrant with a little person and not much of your new home’s language.

    Das ist sehr schwierig. :(

  3. LOL! This is exactly how I felt! Hang in there! It’s coming in good time =)

  4. Enjoy every minute - when they go to school they grow up so fast, and they learn stuff from so many other people… whereas for the moment, you can control what’s going in to a certain extent. The first rude words that come home from Kindergarten are the best :-)

  5. Hahaha this made me smile! :D

    Hahahaha oh man… The things I have counted down to in the past…
    I love the eCard too, definitely cracked up a bit :)

  7. I’m looking forward to Kindergarten next year too!! Except, it’s only half day, which is such a crock. :) But, still looking forward to it because it’s FREE, and it’s everyday vs. 3 days a week of preschool!! Hooray!! Thanks for linking up!

    • Yes! Ours is free too and if I send him all day we just have to pay for his food. I won’t send him all day unless I am able to find some sort of work here but either way, a whole morning to myself sounds like a vacation!!

  8. I feel a happy dance coming on in 25 weeks, 175 days…
