On Monday we asked all our motherly Facebook followers their thoughts of their kids returning to school, especially whether they were sad or relieved (we mean that in a good way). Here's what they had to say.
Jane Mckeon-Pietaro couldn't really decided: "A little bit of both," she said.
How about Kelly Rodriguez? "Relieved and Happy!!!!"
Jacquelin Balcerak didn't hold back with her answer: "elated."
Vicky Cianci commented "Always a tad sad but after this summer I am singing party in the house tonight."
Faith Tripp wasn't happy because her summer was over also: "Sad because it means I'm back to work too."
Susan Falkenmayer was relieved: "Happy!! But I love my boy and wish him a great school year!"
Porsia Yonkasky was sad to see summer go: "Sad-ish. They are ready to go but I love the summer schedule."
Tricia Arellano coudn't make up her mind: "Sad and glad!"
Patch blogger Gayle Amico was excited, to say the least. "SOOOOO HAPPY!!! Both kids out of the house by 7:30!!"
And the winner of our comment thread was Grace Savino who said, "Party at my house 9 a.m. BYOC (bring your own coffee) lol."
