You know Spring Break is starting off well when your mom comes home from class at 12:30 and you’re still in your pajamas, watching TV.

You know Spring Break is going well when your mother lets you invite your friends over for a sleepover the very first night, and makes so much pizza that there’s enough for lunch next day.

You know Spring Break is going well when your mom forgets that she was going to make you do the weeding…forgets for several days in a row and then does it herself. Yes!

You know Spring Break is going well when your mom makes pizza again. What is up with her? Is she vying for Mother of the Year or something (yeah right), or hoping for a Mother’s Day present? When is Mother’s Day anyway?

You know Spring Break is going well when you have enough comic books borrowed from the school library to last the whole 2 weeks…the whole house is full of Tintin, it seems.

You know Spring Break is going well when you get a new book in the mail.

You know Spring Break is going well when your mom keeps letting you cook; brownies, muffins, “experimenting” for lunch, even if she is a little snide about your new “invention”–cocoa and sugar and milk–and says “That’s just chocolate milk.” She’s just jealous because she didn’t think of it. Also adding extra cocoa to chocolate pudding–Best! Thing! Ever!

AND when she says yes to you FINALLY having a birthday party, nearly two months after your actual birthday. There was always some reason (we’re right in the middle of moving. It’s Easter weekend. Your brother is puking. We don‘t even have couches yet) to put it off. But not only did she say yes, she’s letting you organize it! Sweet!

Your only worry…can the rest of the 2 weeks possibly live up to this???
