July Blogging Break

July Blogging Break

Girls, I am taking my annual July blogging break. As you have come to know,  I do this every year for my mental wellbeing, and for the quality of this blog. It has become my gift to myself.

But this year is a little different.

Why Sleepaway Camp Is Good For Kids AND Parents

Why Sleepaway Camp Is Good For Kids AND Parents

I’ve had requests to bring back my article on why sleepaway camp is good for all parties, so by popular demand, no need to sift through. Here is the rerun from three years ago.


It’s 9:15am Monday morning. I just finished a great ‘Beat Spin and Abs’ class, and I’m feeling good. A bit lonely, but gooooood.

Last week, I sent my boys off to sleepaway camp, together, for the first time. The people I have bumped into have asked me, “So? How does it feel to have both your kids gone for the first time?”

My answer? “On a scale of 1-10… 1,000,000!”

And they just look at me.
