Quotes to remind you that you are ‘good enough’ in the school holidays


The school holidays tend to bring out my major wibble wobbles. Are we doing enough? Are we doing TOO much? How much downtime is good? And just when I think I have downtime sussed out, I get a major case of mum guilt. Because shouldn’t I be packing in as much action as possible while we have the chance? Ekk! Since when did school holidays get so pressure filled?


There’s definitely some sort of balance to be had here.


Looking back over the first half of this holiday, I know that I’ve got it right for us, despite worrying that I haven’t. There’s been family get-togethers, Easter egg hunts, Easter baking, crafts and adventures at Kew Gardens for the Peter Rabbit event.  



There’s been the BIG sleep over. Swimming, the cinema, trips to the park and an exciting circus adventure!


Life has been pretty peachy over this school holiday for us, but I have to pinch myself (figuratively) as a reminder. So that I can remember that I’m ‘good enough’ in the school holidays. That being together, whatever we are doing is ‘good enough’. Heck it’s the bees knees. And stuff that magical memories are made if.


Do you ever get the school holiday wibble wobbles? Yup? Then these should help.

    Powerful quotes. I used to find school holidays so challenging but now I home educate so it is more of a long drawn out stress so less pressure in some ways and more in others. I do love a good quote. #DreamTeam

    I love this post, we all have so many wobbles. Dr Seuss has written some awesome quotes #dreamteam

    Love all these quotes. My favourite is “If you never did you should. These things are fun, and fun is good.” I am kind of an introvert personality-wise so this quote is a good motivation for me to try to step out of my comfort zone. #DreamTeam

    Whenever I get to the end of the day and wonder if it’s been fun or we’ve done enough, I always try to remember how many times my daughter has laughed. It’s almost always loads of times so I feel like a bit of a better Mum 🙂 #DreamTeam

    Annette, I’m surprised to see that such an excellent mother as you questions herself! I don’t think children need to have every minute of a school holiday filled. A fair bit of down time that gives them time to think, to process things, to quietly read (or look at) books, to entertain themselves, will be good for them. I think they need a break from the barrage of entertainment and overstimulation that is so constant now. #DreamTeam

    Sounds like you had a great Easter holiday with lots of things to do. Love the Dr Suess quote. As we had builders at home over Easter we were out every day and my daughter was flagging by the Friday but we had a nice lazy weekend before the return to school yesterday. #DreamTeam

    I love these quotes. I think its really easy to compare yourself with others and worry that you haven’t done enough with your kids over the holidays. The thing is, my kids had the most fun playing in the back garden on their swing and trampoline! #dreamteam

    I love these. Anything from Winnie the Pooh has my vote and I really like the one about giving them you. This is something I must try to remember more often as I am so frequently doing several things at once and only half playing play dough… #dreamteam
