Day Camp is winning because it is making all of us get in line. Every other day we are sending something to camp: more money, swim suits and towels, additional snacks. The girls are breaking even because they are at least keeping up and having a great summer. Meanwhile, we, the parents, are falling behind. There’s been the full schedule of water events, making the wet towel count in our house grow by twos. I feel like we’re washing hair every single day. It’s enough to make a parent look forward to a boring, nothing-to-do weekend and think: When does school start?
