Keeping your kids occupied and happy in the car is hard. The older they get, I’m hoping it may get easier… but honestly right now it feels like a job.
Screen free that is. I know that there are tons of apps that would probably save my sanity, as well as the DVD players that go around the headrests. But I want my kids to look out the window. To be bored. To listen to the radio. To ask questions. To see something they have never seen before.

One of the things I honestly never thought about before becoming a parent was where my kids were going to go on non-school days. It’s not on any parenting list, they just show up. I loved those random days as a kid… something fun and different, but now as a parent I’m like … OK… another day that I need to plan.
It can be a bit stressful. Where are they going to go? How are they going to get there? How will it change our schedule? AND… how do I keep them away from screens (which is a problem I’m encountering more and more).

Do you ever wake up one morning and have absolutely no idea it was supposed to rain all day? I even looked at other places around the state to go. 75% of Florida was covered in water, so staying in and working around the house seemed like the thing to do.

I can’t believe we have never been before. Ok. Yes, I can believe it because of the age of the boys, but as we were leaving my husband looked at me and said, when they come back we are absolutely going again. No question about it.
He felt like a kid again. They all loved it so much! Continue reading “Marvel Universe LIVE!”
Kids can do chores. (Insert gasp here…)
Yes! They are capable of doing much more than most parents expect these days.
I remember when I was in Kindergarten doing chores. You probably did too.
