Why I am not surviving the school summer holidays

The school summer holidays are almost here and I can’t believe how quickly time has gone. I was shocked to check the school diary to discover the school will be closing in about a week. For a funny reason, I thought they were closing a few days after, but that’s not the case. The twins have had a wonderful first year at primary school. They have grown so much and have learnt a whole lot. I can’t believe how quickly they are growing. Sometimes I wish I could press pause on life; it feels like they are growing too quick! Which is why I have decided not to survive the school summer holidays. I have decided to make the most of it, treasure the 6 weeks we have together and enjoy every bit of it.

Why I am not surviving the school summer holidays

Back in the day, when it came to school summer holidays, it was a mixture of excitement and dread if I am being completely honest. I mean it is a whole 6 weeks holiday and my kids are very active. They behave better when there is a routine or stuff planned. We all don’t cope well when we go days with nothing to do but sit at home, and I am sure it is the same for many other families. We leave in a little village so there isn’t much to do here. The only soft play centre we had was sadly closed down some years ago, so there aren’t really activities for the kids to do nearby, except play in a playground, park and ride bikes/scooters outside.

However, I have made up my mind to enjoy the break and not survive it. Children are only young once, and the foundation is really important. I am from the school of thought that you should only have the number of kids you can deal with physically, emotionally and financially. So if you do that, you shouldn’t be tolerating the kids, you should be enjoying them. And if you are not, why did you have them?

Having the right mindset helps

I work from home which is why I initially dreaded school holidays because I am usually unable to work from home with the kids. So I end up doing all my work at night and I wake up tired and grumpy. But this time, I am doing things different. I am going to have work planned out well in advance so I don’t play catch up and get stressed out.

Children can be incredibly draining and I know all about that with my active twins, but I believe our mindset affects us parents more than their tantrums. Having a positive outlook helps and just cherishing the moments while they are still tiny and want to spend every waking moment with you is the way to go. That is how I see it and I am going to cherish very day of our summer school holiday, even if we end up doing nothing.

Until the next post, take care.

This is one of the top beauty products worth trying this summer. To get your feet ready for sandals, you need Footner. This beauty product- Footner Exfoliating Socks, promises to remove dry and hard skin on your feet naturally. All you need to do is to wear the socks for 60 minutes, and a few days later, the hard/dry skin would fall off. I am looking forward to testing it out on my tired feet.

 

So these are the beauty products worth trying this month. What do you think of them?
