So here we are, spring break for teachers and kids. Now what do we do? I have to say and I’ve seen a lot of people saying once they had kids TGIF became TGIM these kids tire us out! Now I’m very lucky to have a stay at home Dad, but still I want to embrace every moment with these tikes. The real question becomes how do I get them out a nd about without ruining their nicely established routine? How can I still see people I never get to see without overwhelming the man too?
I sat with all of my fellas for breakfast this morning and instead of all of us enjoying this meal the twins were showing off their raspberry skills and not eating. Getting mad that we kept saying no. Now on the weekend I feed the boys in the morn as usual then our accepted way is I go back to my room and maybe go back to sleep and let matt do breakfast and such. But I’m up so I like to join. But I’m interruptus mamus! I get on the man at night when I get the boys ready for bed and nurse them and then bed. Well Matt enjoys wandering around at this time and really interrupting the boys who I have established this routine with. We are somewhat attempting to wean though admittedly I’m not ready and I want to find some way to keep this routine after breastfeeding is finished. We never bought the rocker for me to snuggle with the boys at night. We do most things on the couch in the living room. This is kind of the problem. We need to find a space and time that’s ours. I know it’s possible. How do you do it? How do you get your night routine? Do you have a stay at home parent who also covets this time? What’s the balance? Can I find it over this break? Do I wait til summer? Hmmm...wait what to do over spring break??
