Child Free Weekend


School holidays are almost over and boy oh boy, I can't wait. We have done quite a bit this break and yet she still miss going to school. There's probably not an hour where she asks if she has school the next day. She still doesn't know what a school break is. Whenever I tell her the word 'holiday', she always thinks that we are going on a holiday. It was a bit of a confusion and so I told her that her teachers are going to rest for a little bit and have a holiday. Now, she kept asking when are they coming back because she thought they went somewhere for their holiday. Thank goodness the day is almost here. I can't say we didn't get a lazy free time though. Because she kept on asking about sleepovers too, she stayed at my parents' house for two weekends. It was great.
