It happens every year, even if you're not prepared for it: summer vacation. Whether you go to an office or run the house, having your kids home for more than two months can throw a wrench in your plans. And don't worry, you're not the only one counting down the days until school starts again. Here are seven thoughts every mom has had:

Week 1: "Whee! My kids will be home. This will be funnnn!"

Week 2: "Why is the day soooooo long?"

Week 3: "I needed to find a play group or day camp, like, five minutes ago."


Week 4: "Is it too soon to go to the movies...again? An air-conditioned movie theater is a thing of beauty."

Week 5: "If my child says he's bored one more time, I am not responsible for my actions."

Week 6: "'Friendly' competitions that may end in injury? Will they take up two hours? No problem!" See how the "Kate + 8" crew does it below:

Week 7: "Thank goodness! Only one more week 'til school starts back."
