Well, hasn’t this year escalated quickly? Term 3 is down, spring has sprung and now we have two whole weeks of school holidays to enjoy (*cough*survive) before the mayhem that is term 4 hits.
We’re all working parents at Daily Orders so we hosted an in-depth round table discussion surrounding the looming school shutdown complete with wall planners and wine.
The result? We’ve all decided we’d like to transport back to the 80s where mums could get away with microwave everything and free-range (aka non-existent) supervision of said children.
Ha! Failing that? We’ve got a few ideas up our sleeves which we’ve included below for you.
