School holidays are bitter-sweet for me. I will share the bitter first so that you have a sweet taste in the mouth afterwards.😊😊😊😊
My biggest concern is how do I keep three little people entertained for almost four weeks without breaking the bank? I also don’t want them in front of the TV the whole time. Yes there are some really excellent programs on TV my favourite and our son’s favourite is Blaze And The Monster Machines. It has some amazing lessons but even he doesn’t want to watch it all day. Our eldest makes sure she calls me whilst i am at work to tell me that she is bored….. so please share your tips for entertaining a six year old and two three year olds “without breaking the bank”
And for the sweet part now
1. Mornings are now peaceful in our house..at least for the next four weeks. No missing school shoes when we are already running late or tears because someone decides they are not hungry and yet cry the moment we are on the way because now they feel really hungry.
2. No homework for me. You see I have noticed that some of the homework isn’t for the child but for the parent. For example my six year old was to make a boat that would actually float and not sink. I wonder how many six year olds out there are actually able to do this. My conclusion is that this is homework for me the parent…so for the next four weeks I get to be homework free yeah!!!!
Enjoy the school holidays and if you can also take time off work and spend some quality time with these special ones..
