So far summer has been it’s been off to a great start.
I’ve taken my kiddos to the pool at work (which is a fabulous perk).Having three on my own, the kiddie pool (2ft) is the only thing I can do with them. There is also a playground next to the pool so we have a routine of play at the playground for a bit then head into the pool when we get too hot.I’ve haven’t been hiking in a while with the kids.The recent days over the last month it’s been too hot, rainy or I was injured (I have bursitis in my right knee that inflamed). So, we are trying to get back into the swing of being in nature. Last week had been our first hike in a few weeks.
It was perfect.Of course, we’ve gone to the beach a couple of times.And the park.Lastly, can’t forget our own backyard.
I like to do “T.V” free days, [with the exception of after dinner.]I like to do this at least twice a week and I usually have music playing in the background from Alexrainbird Music.
I have found this to be key to them:
a. behaving better
b. actually sitting and watching T.V (instead of multi-tasking while watching T.V).
My point is if there is something I really need to do, I know they will be “still” during their T.V. time. It’s usually around snack time so I will set them up and they usually are “good” for about 30-40 minutes.
Depending on the day of course.
