Our first Spring Break officially starts on Friday. Woo hoo? To be clear, it’s not really a break for us moms. For me, it means an extra little one at home. While I love having Mr. B home, for some reason, when the three boys are all home, it seems like the fighting gets worse. It’s not really two against one, it’s just an extra one that doesn’t like to share, that likes to disagree with what TV show to watch, and that is picky about eating. The “one” switches between the three of them constantly.
I honestly didn’t even realize it was Spring Break until Mr. B’s art teacher asked if I was excited about it last Friday during art class.
“Oh yeah. When is it again?”
Needless to say, we don’t have any plans. We’ll be have a Spring Break “Staycation.” It’s actually for the best, since we just came back from a road trip, and everyone is recovering from different sicknesses. The twins are finishing up their antibiotics from ear infections, and Mr. B had some weird virus. Well, it wasn’t really weird, but it just wasn’t Strep or the Flu or anything that could be treated.
Lack of Planning
Since I didn’t really prepare for this “break” from Kindergarten (do kids really need a break from playing and napping with their friends?) I decided that I better come up with some sort of plan. I certainly don’t want us all to stay in our pajamas all week and watch TV. Although, I’m sure we’ll have one of those days. Maybe two.
So, I’ve come up with a list of ideas for us to choose from. We won’t be doing them all, but at least we’ll have some options. Head on over to Not Now Mom’s Busy to read all about what I’ve come with by clicking HERE.
What ideas have you come up with for staying home during Spring Break?
