Every summer when school let out, I'd get bored to tears. Living in the Catskills, there was only so much hiking, swimming and playing with dolls I could do.
When I would complain, my Mom was say:
"This is the most care free time of your life, you'd better enjoy it!!
I’d also complain that I wished I was out of school and didn't have to take "orders" from anyone.
My Mom would say:
"That time will come before you know it, and you will wish that you were under my roof again!!!!"
In both instances, my Mom was so RIGHT!!!
