Summer vacation isn't just for kids - parents love it, too!

My eyes flew open at 7 a.m. today, and I could feel the panic rising even before I sat up in bed. Okay, okay, I told myself. So we missed the bus. Not the end of the world. I'd get everyone up and going, fix a quick breakfast and ...

But this morning, I confess, I simply went back to sleep. And I enjoyed every minute of it.
