What am I going to do with all 4 of my kids home for 3 months?!?!? I am seriously thinking of buying a family pass to our local commiunty pool. I mean honestly who came up with this idea of a 3 MONTH break?
Last year was not a bad summer.(Granted I was working full time during the day.) Dakota and Hunter played really well together. But these last 2 months have been awful. They have hit that age where they fight constantly about every little thing.
I always thought that people who wished that summer vacation never existed were horrible parents. But I do have to say that I have turned into one of "them".
It's not that I don't love being with my kids, I really do, but with four kids home all day, the house gets messier, and it is a constant battle to get them to pick up after themselves.
I have got to start getting organized and making a chore chart that has to be done everyday before they go play with their friends.
Today I am going to set up our pool in hopes that the water will be warmed up enough for the kids to play in come next weekend. Of course that means going and buying new filters and chlorine tabs. Of course you gotta love checking PH and alkaline levels all the time too.......ugh whatever happened to the good old fashioned running through the sprinkler days? My kids are too spoiled and I only have myself to blame.
Well wish me luck my dear readers, because I have no idea how I am going to survive this summer.
