You know you’ve waited one day too many to shave your legs when your 3 year old son brushes against you with his bare legs, falls over in COMPLETE and UTTER agony, screeching, “OUCHIE Mommy! Your legs cut my leg!!!!”
Yep, the first day of summer vacation has been a BLAST! Even with mommy’s capri pants and unshaved legs added to the mix!
(Wait, was this TMI?? So sorry!)
It really has been an awesome day all around.
I printed out a daily schedule WITH PICTURES (for the non-reading mini folk. . .aka lil Allan), and we got right to work with stickin’ to it. Or rather, Mommy got right to work. The boys had to be convinced of the merits of doing CHORE time BEFORE play time. They eventually managed to carry two loads of laundry to the garage for me. (That’s a reasonable chore for a 3 and 6 year old, right?) I had to chuckle at all the stray laundry that fell from their arms between the bathroom/hallway and the garage. And then I had to chuckle when BOTH boys said, “WHAT? We dropped some? WHERE??”
After CHORE time, we had School/Specials time. (Specials are what Samuel’s school calls the fun extra classes they go to each day. They rotate between things like Music, Computers, PE, Art, and Library). Today was MUSIC day here in “Mama’s Fun Summer School of Joy, Happiness, and PLEASE Stop Asking to Play the Wii”, so we ate some cookies (cause, OOPS, Mommy forgot to schedule SNACK TIME) and we sang some songs together.
After School/Specials time, we headed outside for RECESS! The schedule also calls for the possibility of Wii time during recess time, but the weather was GORGEOUS today, so we skipped the wii and played outside.
Lunch followed, and then a tiny bit of wii time (cause Mom is a pushover, and they were all doing SO well!)
Naptime/Restime did not go as well as the rest of the day, but it was successful in that the boys managed to NOT wake up Martha for over two hours! And that’s all I’m going to say about Naptime/Restime.
We are currently in our FREE PLAY time, which includes the option for TV, so guess what kind of PLAY is happening? The sitting on the behind, watching Cyberchase kind of play.
And Mama is gonna make dinner soon.
Right after she bandages up the 3 year old’s bleeding, ouchie legs.
Happy First Day of Summer Vacation, ya’ll!
