Yeah, I have a to-do-list so long, I have to push it out of my mind a bit or I will get very edgy. School holidays and making everyone feel like they have had adequate time with me and are feeling loved plus (me) insisting on a level of discipline, is trickey. Any parent will agree, I am sure? I think I did ok today…better than yesterday…. So yes, when you have had 2 weeks away and then need to hit the ground running… The phone went constantly and the boys thought it was fun to bang on doors and walls while I was trying to converse with ACC, Builder Boy, IRD and the accountants…hard work?! But today we made cookies, watched Planes (the movie for the 3rd time) and Smurfs 2 (2nd time), coloured in colouring books and made stuff with glue. The (big) boys enjoyed their omlette dinner and DaddyO’ came home to boot the rugby ball about. I grin and ponder my job whilst they were doing that – reading in our bedroom… then being told “you are on duty mum!” Yeah, to throw the ball back over the edge of the deck after if happens to land up there. Cheeky little Gentlemans!
I hope that you are able to kick back and relax with yours during these holidays, or just kick back?
Happy Summer Shopping!
