Ready for some honesty 101? Here goes.
I'm approaching very uncertain times for me - because of the job situation we decided it wouldn't be a good idea to send the kids to summer camp starting July 26 through the start of school. It was just too expensive and the place we use wouldn't allow us to cut our days to 2 a week. It was 5 days or it was nothing.
So...deep breath...that means the kids and I will be spending 7 days a week together. 24 hours. Non-stop. No school. No camp. You're probably like "So what? They're your kids." I love them. I have since they day they entered the world. No. Before then. When they kicked and squirmed inside of me. But save for the first 14 months of my daughter's life, I haven't spent all day with them for more than a week.
That seems so odd to type. I went right back to work about 10 weeks after Alex was born and hubby did Mr. Mom duty with him. I'm nervous. I've always admired Mom's who are home with their kids all day because I really don't know if I have it in me to be that type of parent.
So, Moms and Dads, lay on the advice and suggestions on how to keep your kids occupied during the summer months - I'm ALL EARS. I'm thinking keeping the wine stocked for wine o'clock when Daddy gets home may be the first thing I need to do?
