It's already started

Yesterday, I heard "I'm bored!" from my kids no less than 30 times. Actually, I could probably multiply that number by 5 and not be exaggerating. I heard it a lot. I am a little sympathetic to them. I did spend most of my day laying around coughing, sneezing, blowing my nose and generally feeling sorry for myself. I took a small break from wallowing to kindly ask force them to do a little cleaning. Isn't it strange how when you don't feel good, your whole house seems to look as crappy as you feel. They cheerfully got to work whined and complained, but finally complied. I predict the neatness will last through this afternoon and the cleaning will have to happen again tomorrow.

I've already heard "I'm bored" and "we never get to do anything fun" around 25 times today. I can tell this is going to be a very long summer.

I know how you feel. If we didn't have so much cleaning, laundry and packing to do we could let them play. Tell Tyler that we will be back to normal on Monday and then the playing can commense!!

We had so many fights at our house last week that I have decided to institute a "learning hour" every day. A little writing, a little reading, a little activity of some time. If we don't do this, I might kill someone.

It should be fun! :)

I always clapped my hands with glee when my kids said they were bored. I would say, "Yippee! That means you want some chores right?" I rarely heard I am bored. They quickly learned.
Feel better soon!

I feel your pain. And yes, I think this will be a very long summer!

Maybe you can have them write down all sorts of things they "forget' they want to do or like to do and put them on slips of paper in an "I'm bored" jar. Then when they say they are bored they call pull out some ideas.

I'd write more ideas, but I'm bored.

This rain probably hasn't helped much either.
