How is your long weekend going? Has daylight savings started in your part of Oz? Do you love it or hate it?
Weather has been a little crazy here. Had a fair bit of rain last night but lets chat about the School Holidays.
The boys have been pretty good I suppose these holidays, but then again they were away for a good 6 days. But I tell you what, as soon as they arrived home there was moaning and groaning and all sorts of fighting. Oh the fighting, isn’t it just ever so delightful. Now because I don’t teach my own children I am usually very excited to see the end of the holidays arrive. It would be a whole other story if I were teaching them though, so I am thinking of all the Mum’s out there whose school holidays are nearly over.
But don’t worry guys, I might be right there with you. Our Governess is stuck down on the bitumen and after our rain last night I am not sure when she will be able to get in, so it looks like my boys worst nightmare may well be answered tomorrow and I will be the teacher…. I guess they can just call me Miss Chardy, rather than Mum. I can guarantee you one thing… there will be tears. Usually my tears.
The past few days there has been a lot of game playing – mainly trouble. But things have been getting a little out of control, the boys got a little over excited the other day and went a little crazy… I blame it on school holidays. But this is where we are at people #lifewithboys
Not pretty my friends, not pretty. Life with boys, there is head popping and butt popping and all sorts of shenanigans. In the end I had to tell them I would only play if they popped using their hands. It was pretty funny though. It is a wonder they don’t have eggs on their heads from all that popping.
I am really competitive when it comes to games, there is no easing up and letting the kids win. No way. I get that excited when I win and totally rub it in. Then when I lose I make them keep playing until I redeem myself. Clancy is actually very good at Trouble, that kid has all the luck when it comes to popping a 6. He got about seven 6’s in a row yesterday.
This is also where we are at on the mess front, thankfully it has all been contained in the bedrooms, the rest of the house is pretty good…
We would be lost without this lego. The boys, well Harry and Clancy, can play all day long with this stuff and the creations are quite amazing.
So tell me, where are you at these holidays?
Did you go away?
Kids driving you batty?
Or sad that holidays are over because you have to teach your own kids?
