Yea!! It’s Spring Break!! A full week off of school, no lunches to make and tons of fun activities planned for the week. If you are going away for the week, have a blast, be safe and enjoy every minute.
If you are staying home with the kiddies, and have many activities planned for the week, remember how you feel at the start of the week. I will check back in with you at the end of the week to see if you are pulling your hair out.
Keeping the kids home for a full week without planned activities can be fun but after a while, the enthusiasm starts to wane, the house becomes more messy and unruly, the kids are starting to get underfoot, and you have zero free time for yourself. Your husband is begging for attention, that you are using up on the kids, and you, the momma get nada.
You are last on the list! Right?
So why do I bring this up? Twelve weeks of summer is a very long time and costs a lot of money to entertain a house full of kids. And if in fact, you want to break up the twelve weeks with a short summer program (anywhere from 2 – 5 weeks), you at least make a dent at the long summer.
Just think about how our friends up north are feeling about winter right about now? The first days of cold and snow were exciting and were ideal for the holidays. Twelve weeks later? Miami has had the greatest tourist season this year with people escaping that weather, regardless of the cost. So…
Make sure you are set and plan ahead. And please share your thoughts about spring break next week. Can’t wait to hear!
