I'm a little rusty at being a full-time mom to three kids now that Dylan is in school full-time and Ella is in school part-time.
It is with a mixture of excitement (lazy mornings! cuddly kids in fuzzy PJ's! no schedule!) and trepidation (bickering! cabin fever! no schedule!!) that I approach this year's Christmas vacation.
I'm not really a "project mom" but I'm willing to make an extra effort in the name of surviving - and enjoying! - our extended time together.
Thank you, Pinterest, for sponsoring Christmas Break 2011/12.
On the docket:
- Homemade bird feeders
- Christmas-themed reading and writing
- Gingerbread houses
- Easy Christmas crafts
- Paper snowflakes
- Sun catchers
And no worries, we'll be lucky if we accomplish one thing off this list but there's no harm in aiming high.
How will you be spending your extra kid-filled hours?
