An Idea for Summer
Seriously people, this is so incredibly fun, simple and helpful. And I loved it. So, if it sounds like it would work in with your summer and be helpful, then go to it. Sometimes the extra effort on the front-end saves so much stress on the other end. Your list doesn't need to be followed to the T. If you want to try it, just have fun with it.
Go eat ice cream.
Stick your toes in the sand.
Drag out the slip-n-slide (my kids have been begging for days now).
It takes effort to bless those little people but, that's a major part of our job. In whatever way you can, make sure they know that you're not just putting up with them while they're on summer break but that you love to be with them (I know, I know, harder than it sounds at times and I struggle here too because I'm plain selfish).
Remember what it's like to be their age and have fun yourself! I'm hoping that by having a plan to have fun, I'll be able to relax and enjoy the last couple weeks of pregnancy with a good attitude.
I'll let you all know how that goes.
