A Mom's Ode to Sleepaway Camp (Non-Rhyming)

Packing the kids up for camp.
Have bought dozens and dozens of pairs of socks.
Dufflebags litter the floor.
I am labeling things in my sleep.

The time, the effort, the expense
(Oh! the cursed expense!)
Is it worth it for a mere few weeks of solitude?
You bet your ass it is.

Reminds me of the scene from the Simpsons where the kids are sent to camp. There's a big "boo hoo" in the parking lot until the bus pulls out of sight. Then someone uncorks the champagne, the balloons start to fly...

Hah. That is funny.

All three? At the same time? Wow, what will you do with your time?

Baila-
No, not all three.
Flash is going away for two months, Wonderwoman for 3 weeks, and Supermangirl is staying home.
And what will I do with my time?
Work during the day, and read and rest at night, hopefully.
