I'm talking about....
See, two summers ago was horrible. Jack was 2 and Logan was 1 and there was no end in sight. I had a hard time filling the days and keeping everyone entertained. Luckily, Jack got an unexpected and last minute spot in a preschool and started that September and things got much better.
But last April/May, I started to panic. The boys were a year older and wiser. What was I going to do with them all summer long!?!?
I was so scared that I actually made a spreadsheet: rec center classes, library storytimes, private classes, camps, etc. In the end, I signed them up for one "mommy & me" music class that I could attend with both of them. We had weekly playdates with the kids from preschool. And somehow, we survived.
I can feel the panic starting to rise again. In a mere 3 weeks, school will be over and they'll be mine...all mine again! And with the economy the way it is, they really will be all mine. We're not signing up for a single class, camp or activity. Heaven, help us!
So, I'm going to attempt to start a weekly carnival, Tuesday's Tips for Summer Survival, starting June 2nd. Please say you'll join in! I'm going to get up Mr. Linky and an official TTSS button...the whole works! Please help a mama out!
Next week I'll post more specifics.
I wish I could have a big blowout giveaway (but I've run out of things to give away) to entice you to participate. Just know that your participation is saving this mama's sanity. You wouldn't want me to lose what is left of my feeble mind, now would you? (How's that for laying on a guilt trip?)
Um...and Scott, if you're reading this then you know I need help making a button. Thanks!
