I mentioned a couple of times that our pre school holidays were a little less than exceptional.
Week one was relaxing - the kids and I played around the house, watched more iview than usual and of course played 'fire men' until the cows came home. We were content to slow down, unwind and re energise.
It would appear, however, that it takes a three year old much less time to recuperate than it does his almost thirty mother.
I could have wasted another week lulling about the house casually sipping cups of tea and day dreaming. Zeph, on the other hand, could not.
Week two was chaos. I was unprepared for his boundless energy and the squabbles that broke out almost constantly between he and Pippi.
They were bored and sick of each other.
I was bored and sick of them.
Next time, i'll have a strategy.
We'll have a preschool day at home (once or twice a week) where we focus on imaginative play, craft, puzzles and burning energy.
I won't check my emails, my facebook, instagram or my hair.
I'll be the preschool teacher.
Next holidays are going to be a dream, right? I mean, there's only six weeks in a row.
Tell me, what do you do to ward of the school holiday blues (please don't tell me they don't exist at your house)?
