School is out this Friday. FIVE. SHORT. DAYS.
I am both thrilled and terrified of this fact because, let’s face it, kids need to be entertained and mommy needs to work a little. It is the ultimate battle: Quality childcare I can afford while juggling a client schedule and not neglecting summer fun.
Summers traditionally are more hectic for me.
I can’t afford camps all summer long, nor do I want to. I want to play and have fun with the boys while they are still young, but at the same time I have to tackle the work that is expected of me. What is a mom to do?
It is a juggling act to be sure!
So I’ve tried to be creative with my options for this summer. I’m thinking that a mixture of babysitter and me working from home as well as a camp or so might do the trick.
I don’t want to bore them to death while I am working from home either. Anyone have any creative ideas? What do you do to entertain the kids while trying to be productive?
