It’s always funny how as a mom you can’t decide if you do or don’t have a weekend.
Don’t get me wrong!!!! I love spending time with my kids and being creative every chance that I get. But at the same time there’s a fine line between enjoyment and borderline going insane with activities.
Thinking a weekend will be a weekend is a joke for any mom with kids under the age of probably 10/11. At that age kids don’t want their mom or parent and just want to hang out with their friends and parent’s are glorified and unpaid chauffeurs.
Let’s take today for example. A day were you’d think I would have a chance to at least get a few extra Zzzzzzs. Nope not true!
Wake up early and start doing homework with Jennah knowing that wee need to squeeze as much in because we have a busy weekend and week. Mean while Zeenah’s doing a page of her workbook and insisting to do it her way.
I quickly jump in the shower and we head out for a breakfast & play date with a friend and her kids to discovery mall.
Thank fully while the kiddos are in the play area we do get a chance to have some grown up talk over coffee….with our eyes peeled at the kids direction. Yet every whine, cry or scream we hear we assume its our children.
After a full morning we come back home in the afternoon to more home work and active learning play. Because God forbid should I rest right?
Next we are all dressed up to head to a birthday at the Little Gym.
So I ask myself probably more often than not are my girls going to be able to keep up with me or is it the other way around.
At the end of the day I still seem to think I didn’t cover something. One thing is for sure, I’m positive I’m Making Life Memorable for our little family one day at a time.
