It's sad, so very, very sad: the kids are going back to school. Whatever will we parents do with our own free time that we can do whatever we want with now? Sure, we'll still have the weekends to fill with child-centric merriment. Like this weekend for instance: there's a LEGO-inspired festival of bricks, a sing-a-long version of Frozen, (don't pretend you don't still know all the lyrics), two chances to learn what happened when The Crayons Came Home, and lots of free movies the kids will love.
Yes, school may have started (depending on your district), but the summer lives on! Which is really good, on the weekends, as long as the kids are in school, Monday to Friday. So go kite flying, watch an air show, look at the stars, do all manner of things that require looking up, but do them on the weekend. Because the weekdays are
your time, Momma meant for your child's creative and intellectual development.
Speaking of which, you might want to consider looking into after school classes and programs. For even more
Momma-me-time ways to give your kid every opportunity.
Got a few quiet moments to yourself? Why not use them to catch up on
the laundry our favorite picks for this weekend....
