A Good Disconnect

When I was growing up, kids didn’t have the constant electronic tether to their parents that they do today.  It caused the inevitable problems of course – for instance, never knowing where my brother was at dinner time (and having to call everyone in the neighborhood to find out), going to the wrong mall entrance to get picked up and missing our mom, not knowing when she’d get there to pick us up, etc.

Kids @ Home

My kids came home from camp on Thursday.  Each year that day has a certain rhythm to it.  So I’d like to share that day with you: from silence to chaos and back again.  Here goes.

6:30 am.  Sniff, sniff: I smell nothing but broken plaster around the new windows in the kids’ rooms.

7:23 am.  Leaving the house to pick up our camper.  GPS says we’ll be there at about 9:18 am, 18 minutes after the gates open for final pickup.

8:00 am.  Discussing with my wife how our kids feel that this is their worst day of the year, since they have to leave camp.  We’re happy to have them home but I’m not sure I’d say this is our best day.

The kids’ best day is the day they go to camp.  And that’s why that day is our worst day.  Although after ten summers, we’re kind of used to it by now.  Or numb – not sure which.
