I taught school for 37 years. Even when my kids were little I loved Christmas break. Living in Iowa meant cold and snow ans my kids had snow suits and went outside everyday. We always kept busy.
Now, I'm 60 years old and taking care of my four year old and 21 month old grandsons while my daughter works 12-13 hours a day as a critical care nurse. I'm exhausted and it's only 1:00!!! She won't be home until 8:00 tonight! I'm going to be completely wiped out by the time the four year old goes back to school January 8!!
