This week I am off work (except for one day) and I am the full time entertainer and partner in crime with my five year old. The daughter is at church camp. I was contemplating what in the world the small fry and I would do this week. We must have fun and I must get some stuff completed around the hacienda. My son is my easiest to appease child so I decided to make a little list of things we could do that wouldn’t make me want to take an ice pick to my eye balls.
Have a friend over to play. Little Man begins kindergarten in late August and guess what? He really doesn’t know a soul going to kindergarten at his school (except for two kids he previously had daycare with a couple years ago.) It just so happens one of the up and coming kinders is (read this slow so it sinks in) his sister’s bestie’s little brother. All spring I said I was going to have the little dude over to play but it never quite worked out. Well guess what…it does now! I’m planning a day of all things little dudes with playing in the dirt, playing with Legos, and eating ice cream.
Swim. You have heard me whine like a petulant child over the fact I am without a pool for the first time in eleven years. Well I do have a YMCA membership and it is time to use it again. It just so happens the Y we switched to has an outdoor water space so whooppeeeee! And if there isn’t a pool then we have some really fabulous neighbors who have offered up their pool for our use. It will be happening! (Gina, I don’t know if you read but I will be calling you, friend! And I will bring goodies to say thanks!
Speaking of the YMCA…I am starting back to work outs this week *yay!* While I work out my little pumpkin can go play with other kids in Kid’s Club. That is a major win win since he’s always enjoyed that (as do I!)
And to be honest that is my list. I went to Pinterest to find some ideas for fun things to do as well and thought I should do my due diligence and pass these along to you.
And that is pretty much that for now! Follow on IG to see the shenanigans of the week! @mrsamandabullard
