I know that I am absolutely not the only mom who feels this way but every year it hits. What the hell was I thinking with this crazy schedule! The transition from laid-back and lazy summer to the hustle and bustle of “real life” is always a bit crazy and, without fail, I feel the madness consuming me.
I have been waking up at 5:30am for the last two weeks convinced that I forgot something, or worse, someONE like the dream I had that we left one of my son’s teammates at the hockey arena last week. Thankfully it was only a dream but that is where my head is right now.
I know that once we settle in it will become old hat. The carpools will be arranged, the playdates and lunches, the after school activities. But for now it is all new and I am just convinced I will forget something really important.
So, in the spirit of my circus-like life I have a little giveaway for all of you moms who could use a break from it all and have a little fun. Remember last week when I told you that I had taken my daughter to Cirque Du Soleil’s OVO? Well, here’s your chance to go too! I have two sets of two tickets to give away for OVO in Toronto. All you need to do is a) make sure you are an urbanmoms.ca member (only members can win!) and b) post a comment below on how your life is circus-like too. Two winners will be drawn at random by this Friday September 25th. Click here for contest info.
For those of you interested in Cirque Du Soleil’s OVO for your family you will be excited to hear about Cirque’s Family Pack offer available until September 25th. Tickets for parents are $45 and children are $35 (they are normally $65 and up). Click here for details on this offer.
