The kids were out of school for too long! We had 2 snow days this week and I was about to lose my minds.
Winter break was nice because I am off as well, so I focused my attention to them and played with them. That was not the case this week because I am teaching an online class that started on Monday and a bunch of my students had email problems and issues I needed to attend to….
So my kids made a mess all over the house… They were playing “pretend restaurant”
and built pretend forts and tunnels down in the basement 😦
So I decided to have a “CLEANING DAY” That only last about 2 hours 🙂
Since it only lasted for 2 hours…
I called friends to come over…
At one point there were 10 kids at my house… Which I LOVE and I prefer…. My kids are occupied and I can do other things…
Needless to say, by the end of the day, my girlfriends and I were searching for a SPA resort for a weekend getaway 🙂
No more snow days please… I salute those moms who LOVE snow day and spending time with their kids…. I LOVE spending time with them too… But it is hard to enjoy when I still have to work from home. My kids are so much like me. They love their friends and they can’t sit down and do an activity for a long period of time, which I don’t expect any children in their age to do… I love their creativity when I am not the one that has to clean it up..
Argggghhh this might be a good prelude to a post “FINDING EQUILLIBRIUM”…. Note: I don’t like to use the word balance 🙂
