It’s January 9th and you’d think I’d be totally out of the holiday frame of mind and back into the swing of things, but this year seems to be taking the kids and I longer than usual. No more staying up late and sleeping in. No more doing whatever we want all day. No more chocolates. No more tv or computer (uh – for the kids!) during the day.
Yesterday and today R and J have been working on a big
Lego(I wish it were Lego because I’m learning how cheap and frustrating Mega Bloks are!) Mega Blok building project that R got for Christmas. I just love to watch them working so well together and using their imaginations that I hate to interrupt them for something as inconsequential as school! Well, that’s my excuse anyway. Really I’m just feeling incredibly lazy. Awwww, let them play, I tell myself.
Today, though. Today I must pull out the math and Social Studies. I’ve got to give them some sort of writing assignment. We also have to work out a routine for Music. J, in particular, is having a hard time getting her homework completed. She needs to do a bit everyday. I’ve also got to get them back in the habit of doing chores. For some unknown reason I slacked off on that over the holidays. It makes no sense. There are still dishes to do when it’s Christmas! And vacuuming and dusting. Sigh. And so on.
So. Today. Today we will get back on track. Yup. Today. Today. Today.
PS Congratulations again, J, on the most wonderful news that you told us last night. The photos were beautiful. I’m so happy for your family. 🙂
