Hey, It’s Okay…
It’s okay to be the one who brings watermelon as a side dish to a cookout, even if you’re usually the one who bakes and comes up with creative things to take as your contribution.
It’s okay if you can’t remember the last time your kids took a proper bath since the pool and the beach count as getting clean, right?
It’s okay to have thrown bedtimes out the window this summer.
It’s okay if bedtime is whenever the kids start getting too rowdy.
It’s okay if you didn’t get a chance to shave your legs for a few days and yet you still wear shorts.
It’s okay to have dressed up your kids(and yourself) as cows for Cow Appreciation Day because hey, free food!
It’s okay if you’ve decided lunch is completely up to your kids: you’ll make them breakfast and dinner, but they know where the kitchen is, so they can eat whatever whenever for lunch.
It’s okay if you’ve been washing and rewearing the same two pairs of shorts over and over again because you finally found two pairs that are flattering but don’t show way more than you’d ever consider showing even at the beach.
It’s okay to turn into a helicopter parent at the pool because you’re worried about your kids possibly drowning. That’s not helicoptering, that’s keeping your kids safe.
It’s okay to think the time to leave the pool is whenever it gets too crowded to easily keep an eye on all your kids.
It’s okay to be well aware of National Ice Cream Month and Milkshake Day.
It’s okay to decide you hate your swimsuit and buy a new one when they go on clearance in July.
It’s okay to wait so late in the summer for your summer vacation that your kids will miss their first two days of school.
It’s okay to laugh at someone who says that flip flops aren’t appropriate shoe attire with your dresses and wear them anyway.
It’s summer…. sometimes we have to let some things go.
Tell me, what is your summer “It’s okay….?”
