Summer time...it means something quite different as a work-at-home mum compared to a work-at-school teacher! I will be honest and say that I was a bit worried leading up to it! I thought up loads of things that we could do from amusement parks to play dates to splash pads and museums. We'll certainly visit the library weekly.
So far though, we've just lazed about. Hung out in our garden. Dug in the sandpit. Gone bike riding. Played at the playground. Had entire days in our pyjamas. Swam in grandma's pool. Built coach forts. I have a feeling it will pretty much continue like this too!
So I find it funny when there is this flurry of articles going around all about living a slower life and letting kids be bored. Like this one here. And this one here. Obviously there are a lot of people out there who do the opposite. I'm glad to say I'm already living the slow life!
How about you?
