Yes, I am already counting the days until school starts. Not because I am pulling my hair out, that hasn't happened yet. Though I do feel the need to look at this as a me vs. them situation. Sure, they look cute when strawberry picking on Father's Day, but watch out... they can bicker and fight and nag and whine and tattle tale with the best of them.
I am trying to keep my me vs. them attitude a positive one. I am not going to let the monsters, I mean, angels, get the best of me. LOL. I know what I need to do to survive... be proactive. I need to plan activities... boredom breeds contempt. We need play dates... for some weird reason, the more kids there are the nicer they play together. Keep plenty of snacks on hand... being hungry makes them grumpy. Our library and YMCA cards are found and ready to be used, frequently. Andrew's doctor told me about a website called Kids Out And About, it should come in very handy.
I know summer starts later here in NY... what are you all doing in your areas to keep the barbarian hoards, I mean, cute little munchkins, entertained these days?
