I can only afford to do so much with the kids. It’s not like I’m rich or something, ya know.
And having a child that can’t seem to sit still or NOT not be doing something can pose quite the challenge for a mom who has her kids home for a week on Spring Break. And if you think I’m going to be nuts by the end of this week, just you all wait for Summer Vacation.
So far, I have planned to take the kids up to the school at least twice, once at the end of the week to meet up with some of my mommy-friends from my daughter’s Kindergarten class. Of course siblings will be there, too, for a picnic/play date.
And being that we have a $1.50 theater, where movies about to go to Blu-Ray and DVD are viewed one last time in the theater. Of course, with cheap admission, comes overly priced popcorn, drinks and candy goodies. But it’s worth it. We want to see “Gnomeo And Juliet”.
Also, thanks to having a local Minor League Baseball Team, the Lynchburg Hillcats, I would like to try and take the kids for one or two home games. We love going to see the team play. And you never know when the team mascot, Southpaw will come over and give the kids a high-five or a hug. Or dance.
Add in that Bryce (and his sisters accordingly) love to play out in the back yard and ride their bikes, they will have something to always do, as long as the weather holds, of course.
But still, keeping an ADHD child busy can be serious business sometimes. This week isn’t for sitting on my laurels and relaxing. It’s housework, keeping kids in line and busy in one way or another, and having some serious fun.
Now, off to do the dishes, start laundry and clean our Bearded Dragon’s cage.
