There are always two kinds of parents on the first day of school: the kind that will very much miss their children and those that finally celebrate having some time alone.
There is no shame in being in the second group. As one mom’s funny photoshoot proves, it’s more than ok to have some child-free time for yourself, and when you’re an adult, summer fun never ends.
A few years ago a woman named Lisa DiNoto, also a mother of two, got a fresh new start at a carrer. She is a Harvard Law School grad and claims that t she was a “slave to big law” until 2016. That year she set out to “rewrite the life that called to [her].” Right now, Lisa co-owns a trucking company with her husband.
In order to do this, the family moved to Florida, which we all know is home to Disney World.
“You only live once so you might as well spend it listening to the train whistle and watching fireworks from the bedroom window,” Lisa wrote in a Facebook post.
With students returning to school in Florida this month, Lisa recently dropped her two kids off on their first day. But then she chose to do something enjoyable: go to Disney World… all by herself!
“This, my friends. This is what you do after you drop your kids off on the first day of school,” the happy mom wrote in a blog post. “You get yourself a pin and you walk it around Magic Kingdom like some garden gnome on a world adventure.”
