As a writer mom, the schedule is always changing. Some days are school, some are play dates. School is in it’s final weeks and then there is the long nothing known as Summer break. For most, the end of school is a mixed blessing. I look forward to having more freedom to plan activities but I will miss the routine of being able to ship off my oldest for a few hours.
Not that I got much done while he was gone, his sister sees to that. When he’s around they will at times entertain each other. When he’s not, she wants to use me as her chair and personal servant. I can’t complain. She missed out on a lot of one-on-one mommy time because she’s not the first child. She starts preschool in the Fall.
Until then, we need to create a Summer schedule where they get to have fun and I can also get some good work done. I know that there are some great ways to do this, I just don’t know any.
