While school being out means more babysitters are available during the day, it also means no more free babysitter, aka school.
I love school. I really do. I admire the parents who say they miss their children while they're gone, but I'm afraid I'm not one of them. I've been known to cheer in their absence. This could lead me to feel guilty if I thought about it for long, but it's much more fun not to.
There is so much to get done during the time they're not here!
So, when they are, I know it's going to cramp my multitasking style. My youngest wants whatever she wants right now. I'll hear "I'm bored!" and request for extra screen time all day long.
While I love the idea of summer camps, I think it's out of the question for now. We do plan on baseball and swimming lessons, and, if nothing else breaks in our house, maybe even a vacation.
If I need some extra time to get work done, I'm lucky that my daughter's preschool offers that option, but for many parents, summer just means more of the same routine.
What do you do with your kids during the summer months?
